Yesterday, I saw a couple of posters on the BBC AMERICA Facebook page make this observation, and it has apparently spread like wildfire amongst the Interwebs. DudeLOL.com has posted photos of Kagan and Mitchell side-by-side to demonstrate the resemblance, and, gotta say, it’s pretty striking – even down to the teeth.
Meanwhile, fans have bombarded David Mitchell’s Twitter account with messages alerting him of his U.S. lookalike, and the comedian responded with this tweet: “Been away from Twitter for 2 days and return to 100s of messages saying I look like US Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. Poor poor woman.”
Meanwhile, Dame Helen Mirren has met her own doppelgänger – in wax, y’all. Try to guess which one is the real Dame Helen.
Also: did Dame Julie Andrews have a “Whitney Houston moment” during her return to the London stage? The Daily Telegraph‘s Neil McCormick defends the Mary Poppins and Sound of Music legend: “To be fair to the Dame, she has been candid about her vocal limitations…she has been clear about her vocal issues and (unlike relative stripling Whitney Houston, 46, recently castigated for failing to hit her high notes) has built a show around her limitations.”
