What's the difference between Chazz Palminteri and Joe Montangna? Is there any?

Kenan Hebert (kenan), Saturday, 21 February 2004 08:29 (eighteen years ago) link

Um, let's see...good topic!

Gary Busey and Nick Nolte
Dennis Quaid and Kurt Russell
Bill Paxton/Bill Pullman...although the joke to that is quite stale
And seriously, until last week I thought Seth Green and that Jamie Kennedy guy were the same person.

there are more, I just need to jog the memory on this a bit...

M. Robinson (MyklR), Saturday, 21 February 2004 12:27 (eighteen years ago) link

Meryl Streep and Glen Close.

I know I just misspelled their names, but I'm too lazy to fix it.

Far stretches (maybe not)-

Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio
Mary Steenburgen

Tom Selleck
Burt Reynolds
(in their heydays I had them confused as a kid)

Hugh Jackman is the poor man's version of Russell Crowe and Russell Crowe is the poor man's version of Mel Gibson.

I do know the difference between Chris Rock and Chris Tucker, though.

How many times to I have to remind people--it's Turd Ferguson, not Burt Reynolds...

jay blanchard (jay blanchard), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:50 (eighteen years ago) link

that's funny...

Tom Cruise and a heterosexual.

(Waiting for the phone call from Tom's lawyers.)

al pacino and sean penn

people have alerted me to the fact that one is about 40 years older than the other or something, but that doesn't invalidate that they both have really dark confusing hair.

I have this problem constantly! No matter how different the people, if the names are similar I'll confuse them:

Mary Stuart Masterson and Mary Louise Parker (ever since Fried Green Tomatoes)

Plus, I get ordinary words mixed up all the time. Yesterday: Calvary and Cavalry.

Robomonkey (patronus), Saturday, 6 March 2004 16:31 (eighteen years ago) link

Anthony Michael Hall, Philip Baker Hall, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Philip Michael Thomas, Paul Michael Glaser, Paul Thomas Anderson, Hans Christian Anderson. . .(I could go on and on)

BabyBuddha (BabyBuddha), Sunday, 7 March 2004 15:56 (eighteen years ago) link

jay blanchard and BabyBhudda (only confusing if they aren't the same person)

PuzzleMonkey (PuzzleMonkey), Tuesday, 9 March 2004 18:22 (eighteen years ago) link

somehow i saw that coming....and no, we're not the same person--but there are many more like us!

be afraid--be very afraid....

jay blanchard (jay blanchard), Tuesday, 9 March 2004 18:37 (eighteen years ago) link


I do hope, for Jay's sake, that he's not too much like me. I wouldn't wish that on anybody.

BabyBuddha (BabyBuddha), Tuesday, 9 March 2004 19:21 (eighteen years ago) link

Yeah, same here!

jay blanchard (jay blanchard), Tuesday, 9 March 2004 19:34 (eighteen years ago) link

It may have been weird, but I always used to get Julia Roberts and Geena Davis confused.

Sean D. (Sean the guy), Thursday, 25 March 2004 20:53 (eighteen years ago) link

I used to get Alan Shephard and Sam Shephard mixed up. I blame The Right Stuff.

Listening to a talk on Crime genre yesterday, I was startled to realise there was a Howard Hawks AND a Howard Hughes. Which cheered me up immensely, as now a great director isn't a famous nut.

Andrew Farrell (afarrell), Wednesday, 31 March 2004 08:48 (eighteen years ago) link

Frodo and Spiderman -- I really thought they were the same for some time.

BabyBuddha (BabyBuddha), Friday, 2 April 2004 20:29 (eighteen years ago) link

a 30 year old "star wars" fans and a twelve year old boy.

jay blanchard (jay blanchard), Friday, 2 April 2004 22:26 (eighteen years ago) link

Look out! Here's a bad one.

Robomonkey (patronus), Wednesday, 7 April 2004 14:15 (eighteen years ago) link

Back when I was a kid: Carol Burnette and Shirley MacLaine. I think it had to do with the fact they both had short hair.

As recently as a year ago: Bruce Campbell and Bruce Dern. Because of names, I guess.

Not "always" but i've been wondering this week why the internet gives a shit what popular historian Tom Holland thinks about comic book movies
