Actors who I have trouble telling apart

June 1, 2010

God forbid any of these actors commits a crime in the presence of me and the other actor. The jury would acquit post haste!

Tobey Maguire

and Elijah Wood

Watching The Ice Storm is like “spot the difference” pub game for me!

Emily Watson

and Samantha Morton

Two of my absolute favorite contemporary actresses. That trickster Charlie Kaufman understood the difficulty many of us have with these two and thusly cast Watson in the role of an actress playing Morton in Synecdoche, New York.

Do you have this problem with any big screen pair?
