Studies have shown that the likelihood of finding a fully identical doppelganger is 1 to 1 trillion. Now, this is based on the assumption that all eight facial features actually match, but the less features match, the more likely you’re gonna find your doppelganger, despite them being a more distant one.
Well, this one UK-based talent agency does just that—it looks for lookalikes, and not any lookalikes, but celebrity lookalikes. People who more or less resemble famous actors, singers, politicians, personalities, pop-culture icons, and everyone else known to many.
Now, the agency boasts over 1,000 "quality lookalikes", and, sure, some of them do look quite similar, but the internet is of a different opinion with many of them for their comical resemblance or lack thereof.
Bored Panda has gone through the Lookalikes Agency’s and made a list of their offered celebrity "lookalikes", both the good and the not so good ones.
You can find the list below and hey, vote and comment on the ones you enjoyed the most! Oh, and heads up, the first picture of every submission is the real deal, while the others are the "lookalikes".
So, ‘Lookalikes’ is a UK-based talent agency specializing in what they call “top-quality celebrity lookalikes and tribute acts.” These lookalikes can be hired for various events and campaigns.
The company offers over 1,000 lookalikes from all over the globe. While some are country-specific, others don’t have a particular country tag, meaning they are more flexible in their location.
The agency is run by one Andy Harmer. If that name sounds familiar, he himself is a lookalike of famous football player David Beckham.
They offer a variety of lookalikes from film and TV, sports, Hollywood, fiction, politics, royalty, superheroes, and a number of other categories.
So, yes, that includes everyone from the likes of Donald Trump and Barack Obama to Sylvester Stallone and Michael Jackson to Harry Potter and Luke Skywalker to Connor McGregor and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Now, you can’t expect all lookalikes to look like the real deal, and though the agency has a number of truly authentic ones, the internet has turned its eyes to all the ones that look less like the real thing for one reason or another.
A number of online news outlets have already covered the comically uncanny resemblances with some starting to joke that they’d pay to see these lookalikes instead of whatever actor, singer, sportsperson, or other actual celebrity doing their thing.
