Player Look Alikes

While at work today, I was talking with one of my associates and we got into a conversation about celebrities that we thought looked like other celebrities. We spent most of our time trying to figure out who we believed the guy who played in “Grease” that currently is drug-addicted on “Celebrity Fit Club,” was akin to in the rest of popular culture (we came to no consensus). But that of course got me to thinking about current UK players and their stunt doubles in the rest of culture.

My first pick was to go down the senior class and I began with the immortal Brandon Stockton. The less clever amongst us would come up with a lame nickname for the vertically challenged, calling him (if they are really lame) “Gary Coleman” or (if they are a bit brighter) “Emmanuel Lewis.” I submit that he looks much more like the son on “Sanford and Son” that continually gave his dad problems. I think his name was Lamar. Brandon is a bit more plump than Lamar, but he did have a stellar moustache that Brandon occasionally emulates.

I am open for suggestions from the masses on this feature. Patrick Sparks is my next candidate (and no I will not consider any characters from Hoosiers…..they actually made their shots).
