Yes, these nearly identical famous pairs share more than hair-color and could easily be understudies for one another. Some are so used to getting recognized as their doppleganger it has just become a long-running joke and they just play along. Scroll down below to see these incredible look-alikes! Don't forget to upvote your fav pair!

I never realized how much alike they look. Shape of the jaw, mouth and especially eyes are very similar.

Cookie cutter country western looks. They could look like anyone. I know, vote me down. I hate the genre.
