Separated at Birth
Acting Labor Sec. Seth Harris has a face and body double if he wants one. It’s Jim Belushi. And according to a tipster, maybe he also pairs well with “that fat guy from The Office.” That fat guy from “The Office” is Brian Baumgartner, who played Kevin Malone in the TV series.
Let’s have a look.
We’re taking Separated at Birth to new, deeper and ridiculous heights today. We liked BuzzFeed‘s rendition of this with members of Congress so much that we decided to steal the idea for our own fishy purposes. Enjoy!
10. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and a Wooley sheep.
9. Slate‘s Dave Weigel and a sloth.
8. Katrina vanden Heuvel and an Afghan breed of dog.
7. Breitbart News‘ Matthew Boyle and a chipmunk. Hey, they don’t call those chipmunk cheeks for nothing right? We’re talking about the chipmunk, of course.
6. HuffPost‘s Michael Calderone and these exaggerated versions of his dark eyes in some cool cats we found online.
5. ABC’s Martha Raddatz and a blonde Afghan breed of dog.
4. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and a dog with reading glasses.
Don’t miss the top three…
This morning we match Principal White House Deputy Press Secretary and Special Asst. to the President Josh Earnest with former presidential hopeful and Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. It certainly helps that their mouths are moving in the same direction.
With Ezra Klein‘s new old man facial hair look comes a brand new doppelganger for the MSNBC Contributor who writes for WaPo and Bloomberg View.
Here we pair him with outgoing Iranian Prez Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Have a look. Focus on the bottom portions of their faces. Compare and contrast this to a previous Separated at Birth pairing we did for Ezzy in March, 2012.
Yesterday we brought you the doppelganger of The Cook Report‘s Charlie Cook. We said he looked like Jason Furman, President Obama‘s nominee for the Council of Economic Advisers, who in turn looks like Clark Kent. But a reader pointed out that we missed one uncanny twin for Cook. Focus on the bangs.
Noteworthy: The reader had the audacity to instruct us to run this as a correction.
Well, this is timely. This morning we see the physical similarities of well-known political analyst Charlie Cook of The Cook Political Report and Jason Furman, who is expected to be named as President Obama‘s nominee as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. We threw in Clark Kent as a spinoff SAB to Furman just for the hell of it.
Today we’re pairing Harold Watson “Trey” Gowdy III (no wonder this guy goes by a nickname) and actor Draco Malfoy. Gowdy is an outspoken GOP rep from South Carolina’s 4th congressional district. Malfoy was a pure-blood wizard in the Harry Potter series.
UPDATE: A reader also suggests Jack Gleeson, who plays the character of Joffrey Baratheon from HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”
