For those of you wondering why everyone’s Facebook pages have suddenly turned to a celebrity or other famous individual, it’s celebrity doppelganger week on the social networking site.
There is currently a group on the site called “Doppelganger Week.” With over 2,000 fans, once you log into the group you can see precisely what you need to do to join in the fun. Mention in your status that it’s Doppelganger Week and upload a picture of a celebrity or other famous individual that you have been told at one time or another you look like.
In light of Doppelganger Week and ITK’s weekly feature “Separated at Birth,” here are some suggestions for lawmakers who want to become a celebrity for a week:
Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) and Brothers and Sisters’ Sally Field – Both women have dark hair and friendly smiles to match.
Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan.) and Tiffani Amber Thiessen – The lawmaker and the ‘90s television star could be sisters.
Rep. Mary Bono Mack (R-Calif.) and The Blind Side’s Sandra Bullock – Bono Mack looks enough like the star that she could attend next month’s Oscars for Bullock.
Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) and the New England Patriots logo – Both have long faces and a fighting spirit.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) – Schwarzenegger’s extensive film career has saved him the trouble of finding his doppelganger---he already is his own.
