Studies have shown that the likelihood of finding a fully identical doppelganger is 1 to 1 trillion. Now, this is based on the assumption that all eight facial features actually match, but the less features match, the more likely you’re gonna find your doppelganger, despite them being a more distant one.
Well, this one UK-based talent agency does just that—it looks for lookalikes, and not any lookalikes, but celebrity lookalikes. People who more or less resemble famous actors, singers, politicians, personalities, pop-culture icons, and everyone else known to many.
The agency boasts over 1,000 unique lookalikes. Some of them truly look like the real deal, but others are only comically uncanny. Bored Panda has gone through the Lookalikes Agency’s catalog and made a list of some of the best and, well, ‘other’ best celebrity lookalikes.
You can find the list below and hey, vote and comment on the ones you enjoyed the most!
So, ‘Lookalikes’ is a UK-based talent agency specializing in what they call “top-quality celebrity lookalikes and tribute acts.” These lookalikes can be hired for various events and campaigns.
The company offers over 1,000 lookalikes from all over the globe. While some are country-specific, others don’t have a particular country tag, meaning they are more flexible in their location.
The agency is run by one Andy Harmer. If that name sounds familiar, he himself is a lookalike of famous football player David Beckham.
They offer a variety of lookalikes from film and TV, sports, Hollywood, fiction, politics, royalty, superheroes, and a number of other categories.
So, yes, that includes everyone from the likes of Donald Trump and Barack Obama to Sylvester Stallone and Michael Jackson to Harry Potter and Luke Skywalker to Connor McGregor and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Now, you can’t expect all lookalikes to look like the real deal, and though the agency has a number of truly authentic ones, the internet has turned its eyes to all the ones that look less like the real thing for one reason or another.
A number of online news outlets have already covered the comically uncanny resemblances with some starting to joke that they’d pay to see these lookalikes instead of whatever actor, singer, sportsperson, or other actual celebrity doing their thing.
You can find more celebrity lookalikes by taking a look at the agency’s website. As mentioned, they have over a thousand lookalikes, so be sure to check it out.
