Separated at Birth
We got pulled in different directions on this one. On one hand, CNN’s Jake Tapper has a little Ben Affleck in him. On the other? Ed Helms of “The Office” and previously “The Daily Show.” Also…ever wonder what Tapper’s hair would look like if it wasn’t slicked back or trimmed neatly in place? He just might look a little like David Duchovny.
Did Marty make it to Washington, D.C. and not tell anyone? Marty Rudolf, the Twitter-famous News Junkie Online, continues to captivate the internet with his curious questioning of journalists and celebs from his home in Chicago. From the sound of things, Marty never makes it to Washington, but our spy spotted a Marty lookalike at the Foggy Bottom Trader Joe’s over the weekend. Could this be Marty? Could it be a relative? Could it be a fellow News Junkie Online?
We have a few lookalikes on the table today. They come from opposing networks. No matter. Even if Roger Ailes forbids it, they could still be sisters from the start. There’s CNN’s Deb Ferrick and FNC’s Dana Perino. Ferrick also looks like Betty Buckley, the actress who played “Abby Bradford” (the stepmother) on “Eight is Enough.”

Here we have Ferrick with Perino with identical hairdos.

On this Friday we match up WaPo columnist Ruth Marcus, who appeared on MSNBC. Her doppelganger: Actress Kathy Najimy, known for her roles in the films Sister Act, Sister Act II and Hocus Pocus.
Not long ago, Buzzfeed’s Benny Johnson put together a wonderful list featuring members of Congress and their animal lookalikes. While we don’t have a list of “30 Animals That Look Like Benny Johnson,” we did find one potential clone. Comedian Greg Proops was in town earlier this week to perform and tape his podcast at the DC Improv. We caught up with him at the “Lamb Jam” food event at Eastern Market on Monday night. He was wearing a green, flannel suit and, with the rising temps, told us that he was “fucking hot.” Maybe it’s the sharp outfits or the glasses, but we think the two could be brothers from another mother.
While we don’t know the long-term fate of CNN’s Erin Burnett, she was noticeably passed over for the network’s revamped morning show, which leaves her as host of OutFront. That leaves her future a little murky, but if times get really tough, she could always get a side gig as a look-alike for actress Zooey Deschanel.
There’s no denying these two look like they were separated outside the womb. They are Washington D.C. Digital Communications Consultant Jonathan Rick and that wild and crazy guy Steve Martin.
Zoe Feldman, a Washington designer, freelance writer and TV personality bears a striking resemblance to actress Jessica Alba. The two could pass for sisters. At least when wearing bangs.
With news of Jason Collins breaking this past week, The Nation‘s Sports Editor, Dave Zirin, has been making the rounds. On a recent appearance with Current TV’s John Fugelsang, we weren’t sure if it was Zirin or another Current host, Cenk Uygur. Check out this side-by-side comparison and you be the judge.
