When young stars first venture out on their respective career paths, they probably aspire to become recognizable celebrities in their own rights. However, as these 40 familiar faces have found, the new kids on the block can wind up being compared to other famous folks who have come before them. And judging by the following examples, it’s not hard to see why that would happen.
40. Justin Bieber and Paul Wesley
The resemblance between former teen idol Justin Bieber and The Vampire Diaries’ Paul Wesley is uncanny. Though they’re separated by 12 years in age, the pair possess very similar-looking sculpted jawlines, shapely eyebrows and brooding glares. And Wesley himself even appeared to acknowledge his likeness to Bieber by reportedly dressing up as the pop star on one occasion.
39. Sebastian Stan and Mark Hamill
Sebastian Stan entered the world of sci-fi with his 2011 appearance in Captain America: The First Avenger. It just so happens, though, that his celebrity doppelgänger had already been a star of the genre for over three decades. Yes, with his wide blue eyes and slightly downturned mouth, Stan is a dead ringer for a young Mark Hamill, who’s more than 30 years the other man’s senior.
