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.

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.

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.
