With some research one can always find one picture of someone and and another of someone else that look similar. Now, I can hear hoots of derision if I say I look like Gene Kelly, yet, there was one (not two, only one
) picture of mine, taken many years ago and which is now in an old passport where I look just like Gene Kelly in one shot of maybe two seconds in An American in Paris.
Up to some years ago everytime I met a Dutchman (or woman - actually, in my field of work it is more like Dutchwomen- before someone calls the police - a language school) the first thing they said was not Hej or whatever Dutchwomen say when they meet non-Dutchmen) was "You look like Mr. Bean!" And then they added in haste: "But I love Mr. Bean!" You cannot immagine how many 18 years-olds have told me that one.
But I do have one better: a Shostakovich look-alike who sings in a filmed version of a Shostakovich operetta made while Shostakovich was alive:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=homFmDvX ... re=related
