Separated at Birth?

Years ago, the now-defunct (and then-funky) Spy magazine had a great feature called "Separated at Birth" where they'd find images of two very unrelated people in a similar pose and juxtapose them while asking the question "Separated at Birth?" There were uncanny resemblances and it was always a hoot. Spy even published a book filled with these gems.

The most iconic was this shot of Don Knotts (Barney Fife on the Andy Griffith show and "The Incredible Mr. Limpet") with his doppleganger, Mick Jagger...





I'm wondering if some genetic material was once passed along by Mickey Dolenz's (lead singer for The Monkees) family and singing sensation Susan Boyle?

It's those eyebrows! I wastch Susan Boyle on You Tube last night and I kept thinking: as soon as those stylists get their hands on her those eyebrows are getting a wax job!

The frizzy hair, squinchy eyes, nose shape, brows all conspire to create a resemblance. Interesting.

The brows, the nose, the mouth... they really DO favor! Amazing.

She can sing better than Mickey ever dreamed of... but I do have to admit that the first time I saw her, I wondered how that TV shows hairdresser ever allowed her on the stage without doing SOMETHING.

OMG! That is too funny. I agree with Deb, it's the eyebrows. The mouth is similar too.
