A fictional character who bears the same name as, looks and acts more or less exactly like, and is clearly supposed to portray a real person (or a stereotypically exaggerated version, if it's a parody/satire/pastiche).

Sub Tropes include Historical-Domain Character (and, of course, its own subtropes), As Himself, and Politician Guest Star.

Sister Trope to Real Person Cameo, Newscaster Cameo, and Author Avatar. Compare Captain Ersatz.
