Sometimes you’ll look at a celebrity and think, “God, who does he/she remind me of?” Like in the case of Lindsay Lohan, it could take you days to realize she looks exactly like that old piece of luggage in your attic. Or you might stare at Dr.Oz for hours on end before it clicks that he looks a lot like how Satan looks in your nightmares. Sometimes it just clicks, and other times you need someone else to point it out. That’s where we come in. These are the top five most uncanny celebrity doppelgangers.

5 Adrien Brody (The Pianist) and Snoop Dogg (Rapper)

Adrien Brody is more than just an actor, philanthropist and Gillette razor pitchman; he also makes appearances at children’s parties as rapper Snoop Dogg. Anyone who has ever said that a white man and a black man can’t look exactly alike has obviously never taken a close enough look at these two. The fact is, if you painted them both purple you’d be pretty hard-pressed to figure who’s who. The secret here? It’s all in those uber-relaxed, “I just smoked three blunts in ten minutes” eyes they share.

4 Josh McRoberts (NBA Player) and Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny)

A former standout at Duke University, Josh McRoberts was a second round draft pick back in 2007. He has bounced around the league a bit, but has managed to become a respected role player and a valuable piece on a scrappy Orlando Magic team. Another thing he’s managed to become, which was far less expected, is a 7-foot version of It’s Always Sunny’s Charlie Day. Growing out his hair and bit and sporting a beard, McRoberts has proven to bear an uncanny resemblance to his 5’7” actor counterpart. And let’s be honest, having gone to Duke, it’s wise of McRoberts to disguise himself as someone that people actually like.

3 Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire) and Pepe the King Prawn (Muppet Shrimp)

Some people say Steve Buscemi is ugly. Screw that, that guy’s face has character, which is more than we can say for you. Sorry about that, we just really like Steve Buscemi. Speaking of character, another guy we like just happens to be a beloved Muppets character, and also, a dead ringer for Mr. Steve Buscemi. Yes, we’re talking about the always-hilarious Pepe the King Prawn. Both Steve and Pepe share an impressive pair of bulging peepers and a comic wit to match. Sure, one is a felt puppet, but we aren’t going to say which one. Some mysteries are better left unsolved.

2 Ron Paul (Politician) and Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings)

Ron Paul’s bids for the White House may have gone significantly better had he just focused on getting nerd support by pointing out that he starred in The Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and played Magneto in the X-Men trilogy. I mean yeah, technically speaking it wasn’t really him, but damn if that guy doesn’t look exactly like British actor and knight, Sir Ian McKellen. Just think, had Ron Paul ever made it all the way to the office of the President, we’d all have had the pleasure of seeing him yell at a controversial bill: “You shall not pass!”

1 Jessica Rabbit (Toon wife) and Christina Hendricks (Mad Men)

It’s easy to see why this one lands in our top spot. After all, it’s not every day that a real life woman shows up looking exactly like a cartoon character that’s inspired filthy thoughts in the heads of men everywhere and forever blurred the lines between sexy and really weird. Luckily, Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks has given millions of busty, redhead-loving pervs a real live woman to focus their energy on, instead of shamefully hiding in a back room looking at animation cells of a fictional lady who’s married to a rabbit.
