Props to Pies reader Patrick for spotting that Roy Keane-plus-beard is a modern-day King Leonidas (leader of the frankly suicidal Spartans). I can imagine Roy’s half-time team talks in a totally different light now: ‘Mackems! Tonight we dine in hell!’
Whilst reading Rob’s splendid David James hair post, I was struck by the similarity between Jamo and James Harries, the freaky antiques dealer/child prodigy who had 15 minutes of fame after appearing on Wogan in 1988, and has since changed gender to become Lauren Harries.
Simple really – who’s the worst Lamps lookalike (Justin Eason on the left, in Chelsea shirt; Eric Yabsley on right, in England shirt)? Yes, we know they’re both really shit.
Ok, so they don’t look that similar – it’s more to do with the fact that I bet their personalities are a very close match. If Gary Neville worked in a crappy office, he’d be a total jobsworth with a tidy desk and a stapler that he’s written his name on in Tippex.
According to the Fake Faces lookalike agency, Gerry Crawford decided to become a lookalike ‘when he realised the amount of people telling him he looked like Juan Veron’. Hmm, he looks more like a rubbish WWF wrestler than Veron. However, should you feel the urge to utilise the talents of Gerry/Juan (it’s hard to tell […]
Remember Graham Rooney, star of the TJ Hughes commercial and Wayne’s little brother? Well, if making a few bob by being a cheaper-to-hire version of Wayne seemed cheeky, Graham is now parading around with his very own Coleen. Carly Gardiner, Coleen’s cousin, is the other half of this (even more) downmarket match-up. Watch this space […]
David Beckham collected an Outstanding Contribution to British Sport award (there is a message of hope to all Real Madrid benchwarmers) at the Sports Industry Awards 2007 last night sporting his new haircut. There is definitely a touch of the Tintins about his new strawberry blond short-back-and-sides-avec-quiff. No murmurs about them both having a faithful […]
As noted in our Sticker Sundays feature, Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov is in fact Dracula. [Rob Parker]
When Sylvester Stallone put in an appearance at Goodison Park before Everton‘s game against Reading yesterday carrying a few extra pounds than when his first Rocky film came out in 1976, there was a certain resemblance to a real-life sporting legend with his own weight problems. [Rob Parker]
The force should be strong with West Ham once Eggert Magnusson‘s takeover goes through. [Rob Parker]
My trips to the cinema seem to provide a useful hunting ground for Lookalikes. Last night I went to see Casino Royale (it is worth the hype, by the way), and didn’t come away empty handed! I present Jeffrey Wright (who plays CIA agent Felix Leiter) and Joleon Lescott… [Rob Parker]
No wonder Newcastle are struggling this season. PC Glenn Roeder has been too busy locking up Gazza to worry about tactics, team selection and inspirational team talks. He might be dull in the world of football, but he is probably one of the most charismatic coppers ever! For more Glenn Roeder fun-poking, check out […]
I went to see The Departed last night (good film to catch if you are heading to the cinema any time soon). Leonardo di Caprio’s character really reminded me of someone… [Rob Parker]
One of the best lookalikes we’ve seen recentlyâ€¦ [Via Left Back]
If you fancy a bit of a football-related chuckle – and you have already read all the posts on Pies and Bratwurst several times on the day in question – then the Guardian’s array of Photoshop mock-ups in The Gallery rarely disappoints. This week readers have been providing their interpretations of Carlos Tevez and Javier […]
Bolton Wanderers’ king of bling versus hip-hop’s king of bling. One spits rhymes and the otherâ€¦ well, he just spits. Can you tell the difference?
The rumours earlier this week were that Alan Shearer was ready to give up his burgeoning media career and move into football management. That was before we knew about his big break though! It seems Super Al landed a part as an extra in Coronation Street earlier this week (as spotted by the excellent Corrie […]
West Ham’s Carlos Tevez â€“ have you any idea how weird it is to type that! â€“ looks to my eyes a bit like a pocket-sized Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers front-man, if you didn’t already know). West Ham’s Carlos Tevez â€“ yep, still feels bloody weirdâ€¦ (No offence meant to Hammers fans â€“ […]
Canada-based Pies reader Dan O’Leary used his mobile to snap this picture, which clearly shows Robin van Persie moonlighting as the face of Nestle Drumsticks (‘a bit like a Cornetto,’ Dan tells us). Does Arsene Wenger know?
Have you ever needed someone to turn up at your party and be surly with everyone, and complain about how the jelly was officiated? Well, thankfully, Susan Scott Lookalikes have got just the thing for you. A lookalike of ‘The Special One’, Jose Mourinho. Leon Yianni (pictured) can turn up at your event… and… well… […]
Found this image of Gary Lineker’s grandfather on the net. The family resemblance is uncannyâ€¦
This video puts me in mind of Peter Reid and that fly-on-the-wall Sunderland documentary, when every other word uttered began with f and ended in k. Peter Reid is obviously the Joe Pesci of British football â€“ and if that isn’t a gratuitous reason to post a Scorsese clip on a football blog, I don’t […]
