My wife has a very hard time telling actors apart. Inevitably we will be watching a show or movie and she will say, "oh, that was the guy from ['Insert name of other show'] and I will have no idea who she is talking about until I realize she has mistaken the actor for another actor who doesn't really look anything like the actor she is thinking of. In the early-00s, she always mixed up Claire Danes, Julia Styles, and Anna Paquin.
Last night we were watching Mindhunter and Brent Sexton showed up and she insisted he was the guy from Justified. Fair enough, he was on Justified. But after further discussion it became apparent she was actually thinking of the guy who was on Justified who also was the prospector on Deadwood (Jim Beaver) who married the widow. When I said, "no", she then claimed he was then the bartender on Deadwood (W. Earl Brown).
I don't think these guys look that much alike, other than generally being doughy white dudes with facial hair. Can you help settle this for me:
|All of these guys look alike.||11|
|None of these guys look alike.||5|
|Jim Beaver looks like Brent Sexton.||4|
|Jim Beaver looks like W. Earl Brown.||1|
|Brent Sexton looks like W. Earl Brown.||1|
