Look-a-Like ~ Daniel Radcliffe


This look-a-like segment is brought to you by Just Jared (where this photo was snaffled)
and LiveJournal user Shezan, who brought it to my attention in the first place.
So big thanks to them!

Somebody stole John Thornton's
sideburns and Gisborne's floppy hair
and stuck them on that Harry Potter kid!
Oh wait... I guess he's not a kid any more.
In fact, he's looking rather handsome in this photo,
which kind of creeps me out.

Side-by-side:

I always thought DR sort of resembled RA a bit.  A shorter version, anyway.
Has anyone else noticed that they both do a one-eyed blink thing? 
~Where one eye blinks before or longer than the other.
(Okay, I sound nuts, but it's true. JT does it in the train scene.)

Haha- the side by side is just weird! RA was fantastic in Spooks last night, but it's getting a little scary w/a possible betrayal. He actually looked better than I've ever seen him.

Wow! That is really interesting and weird! LOL What movie is DR in for this picture?

Ruth said...

I'm slightly disturbed by this side-by-side comparison...but hey, go Daniel! Awww, Harry's all grown up...

The movie is the screen version of, 'The Woman in Black.' It's a good old fashioned, creepy ghost story. I'm dying to see this, as I'm an HP nut and the book is one of my favourites. On a weird note, Adrian Rawlins, who plays James, Harry's Dad in the films, played the same role in a TV adaptation of the book that Dan is playing in the film. And Richard and Dan sorta look a bit alike, at least in those two shots. First time I saw VoD and Harry with his glasses on, I thought Richard might make a good adult Harry. But alas, it wasn't to be sigh.

Ramble over with, now.

I have always thought that RA/HK could be the elder brother of DR/HP. The side by side pics are amazing.

DR is quite a honey, but sadly doesn't have the height, which is an essential pre-requisite for me:)


ps where is BZirk these days? I miss her.

Avalon said...

True!
What a resemblance!

Ali said...

I saw this on twitter yesterday and yelled out "it's his younger brother!" But that side by side Nat now makes the similarity even more obvious, nice posting.

As Myrtle says, DR lacks the height and IMO nowhere near as good an actor either, but then I'm slightly biased ;)

The likeness is unbelievable.

Yes, I had noticed that Daniel blinked one eye alone, but I had not realized that Richard did too! I have an excuse to see N & S and noticing the detail of the eye! Yes, they seem a little, but only slightly. Besitos from Argentina.

Liz in New Zealand said...

OMG - Richard has a "Mini Me".

Eliza said...

He still looks like a kid!!!
@Liz "Mini Me" Lolololol brilliant!!!

pi said...

Creepy. I think that the lighting and grooming give the appearance of a mini-me but I don't think they remotely look alike.

Wow! There's an unsynced blink thing happening??? Who knew? And here I thought RA had rhythm. :)

littlevictories said...

He also stole Gizzy's stubble. I always thought SFH looked a bit like Harry Potter. Now I can see the resemblance with his 3-D counterpart. Strange. Glad you snaffled this one you photo-snaffling snaffler you. (Try saying that 5 times fast.)

Traxy said...

Wow, Harry Potter in a period costume! *jumps up and down*

That the two resemble each other is something I discovered when seeing Between the Sheets clips on YouTube. I thought "OMG, he looks SO MUCH like DR! ... That's ... disturbing!" Because I've never looked at DR and fancied him, but RA, good gods yes. And there they are, so similar-looking, yet one about a foot shorter than the other. Then, admittedly, I'm terribly ageist and heightist when it comes to fancying actors, which doesn't help. But who knows, ten years on, DR might be as gorgeous as RA is! But short.

Still, any man in a period costume, eh? *grins* I mean, DR actually looks quite handsome here. So yeah! :)

That is quite disturbing!! Plus, Daniel is a lot shorter. I think it's the posture in that picture.

@Rob said...

So cute. That DR I just want to put him in my pocket, so I can pull him out from time to time and pat him on the head.

Twinkling Moon said...

you know what, when I first became a fan of RA I couldn't figure out who he reminded me of, but then I realized it was DR! Something about his mouth and the his voice and accent that brings DR to mind. So I totally can see a resemblance even before this side by side pic.

But wow! What an eye to catch that amazing resemblance in that pose!

PS has Spooks 9.2 aired in the UK? I'm thinking it must have but I don't see it on Casttv.com? Anyone know where we nonUKers can watch it?

Myrtle said...

@TM yes Spooks 9.2 was on TV on Monday and it was excellent!

littlevictories said...

@Twinkling Moon Send me an email (littlevictories@ymail.com), and I'll send you a link.

Colleen said...

Nat... HELP! I watched the first ep of Spooks season 9 on Casttv.com and loved it! But the second episode is not there! Any ideas??? I am going to have a heart attack if I can't keep watching this season!! Every morning I go to the site and check to see if ep #2 is there and nope! So, anyone else in the US able to watch season 9 please let me know HOW!

kristi said...

My fangirl self doesn't even know how to process the side-by-side comparison. I think my heart may explode with squee.

Sue said...

There is a resemblance. I believe that Daniel is also a little shy too! Maybe they could play father and son one day in a production. When the pictures are compared of them together Richard by far is the most sizzling being of an actor. He puts such emotion into his character. Alas experience comes with age. By the way Daniel bared all I believe in a stage play. Will Richard do the same do you think?
