Avery Gray posted a thing on her blog showing which celebrities she most resembled. I figured I'd give it a shot because everyone has certain celebrities that they're told they resemble, but I never hear the same name twice. So, let's let a computer decide.

According to the MyHeritage website, the eight celebrities I most resemble are...




Goran Visnijc? That's my celebrity doppleganger? Who the hell is that? I mean I see a VAGUE resemblance, but doesn't he have to be a celebrity in order to be my celebrity look-a-like? Christ, at least I have a blog. Maybe I'm his celebrity look-a-like.

My #2 match is Kian Egan. Who? He doesn't look the vaguest bit like me.

Now, as for Charlize Theron and Christie Brinkley, those are obvious choices. Dead ringers.

Harold Ramis? I guess we both have two eyes. Close enough.

Serena Williams? WTF!?

And the list gets rounded out with Anakin and Colin Farrell. I've read computer science papers that tried to prove that computers are incapable of generating randomness. I think this disproves those theories

Avery's list
at least resembled her! I decided to pick another picture from the same date and try again. I wanted to know if the website came up with the same results twice, or at least did better the second time....



Ta dah!

Those people at MyHeritage really nailed it this time. I always thought of myself as a combination of Rosanna Arquette, Laura Branigan, and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. Mostly Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (obviously).

So, uh... that's me.

wow, the second one is spot on. You sure you weren't cloned?

Mike said...

The resemblance is spooky, isn't it?

Rrramone said...

You do look just like Charlize. Who by the way was just voted the sexiest woman alive by Esquire. Well done.

Velvet Sacks said...

Actually, I can see the Serena Williams resemblance clearly. It's all in the cheekbones and the wide smile. How are you with a tennis racket, by the way?

The Illustrious Ms E said...

I knew you looked familiar, I just couldn't put my finger on it...But seeing your picture next to the Queen Mum's, it's obvious to me now...

Mike said...

Rrramone, *curtsy*.

VS, sure our faces our similar, but it's our tennis serves that really bond us.

Ms. E, are you sure? I'm feeling very Laura Branigan today.

Oooh, Goran Visnjcidkcj. Now, HE's hot.

Lisa said...

Hi,

I found your blog through Newnorth's site, and I gotta say, your posts are seriously cracking me up. Great blog!

Mike said...

Carey, it's a good thing that Goran is hot. He surely doesn't have a sexy name going for him.

Hey Lisa, thanks! Stick around and you'll be tired of my shtick in no time!

Avery Gray said...

Okay, I'm well aware how lame this will sound to 99.952% of your readership, but I write romance. I'll take a moment for y'all to get your Fabio and bodice-ripper comments out of your system.

Done? Good!

What's the point? Well, according to the majority of women polled on a website of romance aficionados like myself, Goran Visjnic was the #1 man readers pictured in the hero's role.

So, how do you like them apples, sexy?

Mike said...

Avery, unlike many mortals who stumble through life unaware of its hidden pleasures, I do like my apples sexy. How did you know?

And, in answer to the unasked question, yes, I'd be honored to pose for the cover of your novel.

Avery Gray said...

Oh, I am so holding you to that! Just see if I don't!

Mike said...

Avery, if you're looking for an under-muscled Semitic-looking male for your cover, I am your man.

If you'd like to see some of my other "looks", please enjoy the video in this post: http://ogblay.blogspot.com/2007/08/ahhhhh-i-shaved-damn-thing-today.html

Hey Mike - I second rrramone - if I didn't know better, I'd have thought you were Charlize's twin brother. Oh, and if it makes you feel any better, I did this about 6 months ago and one of my top lookalikes was Glenn Close. So it wasn't all that bad for you. And look at the bright side - just when you think the gods dealt you a bad hand, you can always be content with the knowledge that there's always someone out there worse off than you :)

Mike said...

Hi Sue, maybe Glenn Close isn't the hottest woman in Hollywood, but she's maybe two orders of magnitude more attractive than the Queen Mum.

2catsdesigns said...

Hmm.. you have a point there Mike. Though as ugly as the Queen Mum is, I wish I had her bank account. :)

Mike said...

Yeah, but you wouldn't want her family to go with it.

Avery Gray said...

I have it all pictured now--you with the 70's pornstar stache AND soul patch (my favorite!), with your shirt unbuttoned down to your pants (because who can remember to button a shirt when you're that damn good looking?), and, of course, oiled up like a greased pig (nothing's sexier than a glistening farm animal). You'll be looking of into the horizon while some well-endowed Hooters reject clutches your leg (right below where it counts), and peers up at you longingly.

Can you just picture it?

Mike said...

Damn, is it just me or did it suddenly get warm in the blogosphere? I'll be in my bunk.

Freddie Sirmans said...

Just browsing the internet. You have a very, very interesting blog. I'm sure I will visit again.

Mike said...

Hey Freddie, thanks. The door is always open for you.
