Bond Actors--Separated at Birth

edited September 2017 in Actors Posts: 2,469
I was watching "Long Live Walter Jameson," an episode of The Twilight Zone, and was absolutely astonished by the resemblance between Kevin McCarthy, the lead in the episode, and Toby Stephens. So much so, that I thought McCarthy must somehow be Stephens father, uncle, or grandfather. No dice. There's no relationship there. But there's also no denying that they're dopplegangers. See for yourself:

    May as well make a thread of it, so with a teeny tiny bit of editing to the thread title we have the chance to commit a few likenesses between Bond actors and anyone else who takes your fancy.

    While there's certainly a passing resemblance in those photos, I've never quite thought that McCarthy looked like Stephens. Perhaps that's because I'm more familiar with him as an older man in several tv series (where he used to make appearances) and also in the 1967 film Hotel. He had a distinct appearance and voice.

  • Twilight Zone is proving to be a font of Bondian likenesses. From "People Are Alike Everywhere," Ms. Susan Oliver!

    This one gets me every time. Eerily spot on, and it likely doesn't help that he'll be playing him in an upcoming HBO series, I believe:

    So Eliot Carver faked his death and has disguised himself as the pope. The perfect set up for Tomorrow Never Dies 2: This time it's Pope-sonal

    If there's anything that can help Carver take over the world, the Vatican!

    Crikey, that's uncanny. I had to google him because I didn't know who he was.
