You Won’t Believe How Much These Central New Yorkers Look Like Stars
If Hollywood stars ever need doubles, we've got 'em right here in Central New York. We held a casting call on Facebook for celebrity lookalikes and received a lot of responses--some from folks who resemble stars themselves and others nominating friends or acquaintances.
Some of the results are astounding. George Kane is a former teacher at Cicero-North Syracuse High School and is such a dead ringer, he has his own website (hughhefnerlookalike.com) and travels the world posing as the famous Playboy tycoon...
Kane has won awards and has appeared on America's Got Talent.
Michael Brych is a health education teacher at Perry Intermediate School in New Hartford, an accomplished long distance runner, and his lookalike is Steve-O, one of the crazy stuntmen on TV's Jackass.
For a small sample of some of our best Central New York celebrity lookalikes (including Frank Rhodes as rocker Pete Townshend of The Who, Ed Calkins as Jeffrey Jones, who played the principal in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Dave Wheeler as John Belushi), click on the slideshow below. If you have some others to nominate, please forward the pics and info via our free app, or send to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post on our Facebook page.
