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.

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)

LOL!

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

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

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.

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

Look out! Here's a bad one.

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.

I just learned that Tye Sherridan (young actor in Ready Player One, Tree of Life, Mud) and Barry Keoghan (young actor in Killing of a Sacred Deer, American Animals) are two separate people.
