As I met presidential candidate, Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Michigan) last night, I couldn't help but think he looked like a certain celebrity. The only role I could remember the celebrity for was one of the executives, Frank Bascombe, in the 2007 version of Fun with Dick and Jane. With the help of Internet movie database, I found out the actor is Richard Jenkins, who actually has 95 titles on his resume.
A coworker is convinced that a better doppelganger for McCotter is John Waters , who wrote the 1988 version of Hairspray. Take off Waters' mustache and you get McCotter, he believes. I'm not completely sold on that, but what do you think?
The conversation got me thinking of who other presidential candidates may look like.
Though she's not a declared candidate, we all know how much Sarah Palin looks like Tina Fey. (Or is it the other way around?)
What are some other doppelgangers?
Rick Santorum and Jerry Seinfeld?
Mitt Romney and one of the Baldwins?
Dare I say Newt Gingrich and a young Andy Rooney?
What do you think?
