Hey! Movie Monkey Prince is Obviously a Runner Who Rocks Something Awful

Hey! I Saw You On TV!
Once in a while, someone will tell me that I remind them of someone. Sometimes it’s flattering, and sometimes it’s not. Dave wrote an article about this last year, which was pretty hilarious.

I wondered which celebrities reminded my friends of me, so I decided to ask them. This list is the result. Unlike Dave, I haven’t put pictures of myself up for comparison.
This is because I am a lazy jerk…

The Movie Maker

M. Night Shyamalan

This was Reay‘s pick.
I wondered if Reay picked Shyamalan because of his inherently cool geekiness (although, while I posess the geekiness part, I’m not sure about the cool), or his strange hair.
The reasoning was much simpler…

He’s a brown guy like you…

Great criteria, Reay.

The Monkey

Curious Jorge finds his Frog.

Most of the kids in my grade school called me Curious George, claiming we looked alike.
I was always puzzled because no matter how many times I checked the mirror, I could not see any real similarities other than the fact we had the same number of limbs and big ears.
I also didn’t understand why they kept calling me that because my name is spelled with a J rather than a Ge.
I would just shrug my shoulders and go back to reading my Hardy Boys books.

The Prince

Whatchu lookin’ at, Carlton?

I was first compared to Will Smith in high school.
It came at an opportune time because I was feeling low, and the person who told me was a pretty girl.
I could never figure out why. Again, it might be the ear thing, or a similar pigment.
I suspect it was because I was kinda goofy and had a wee moustache, just like Mr. Smith up there.
Either way, that was a cool thing to hear.
Once in a while someone will tell me I remind them of Will Smith, and I just smile, nod, and then break it down, ol’ skool.

The Obvious

I have an evil twin. Or is he the good one?

My friend Dan pointed this out to me.
It’s just another guy named Jorge Figueiredo who has a blog.
I think he lives in Portugal or Brazil. So if you want to visit him, knock yourself out.
Of course, don’t blame me if he comes looking for you.

The Runner


Dave came up with this selection.
He also included an explanation as to why he chose it…

This guy, but only because of the haircut. (Okay, also because of that time you were shot in the buttocks.)

Dave always knows how to bring back painful memories.

The Rock

The People must test my deodorant.

My brother chose The Rock as someone who I resemble. I asked him why, and this is what he said…

The picture just looked like you with a tattoo, and you have a lot of charisma.

That was a really nice thing of him to say. Considering he is one of the smartest people I know, I figure he’s right.
Of course, he failed to mention my eyebrow problems and my inability to speak in anything but the third person.

The Awful Truth

Loincloths are in! Trust me! I wear it Scottish Style!

Shatton picked Giant Kamala as my lookalike.
He has an interesting way of looking at things, so I’ll let him explain…

This is a pic of someone who reminds me of you (but not the other way around). Because he is as crazy as you be.

There is nothing I can add to that statement.
