Look-a-likes and Eyebrows

A lot of people think RA looks like Hugh Jackman.
They're both tall, dark and handsome. They both have thin lips. They both look dashing in a tux.
Other than that, I don't see too much similarity.

I think this actor, David Conrad (co-star of "Ghost Whisperer"), looks more like RA than Jackman.

He has a straight nose, peircing blue eyes, a similar jaw line and facial structure, and is even donning a Thornton haircut in this photo. Conrad is, however, missing a sexy British accent! I think he could pass as RA's brother on film... or Gisborne & Isabella's half-brother in place of the actor who played Archer. (That reminds me... to read an entertaining review of RH Season 3, click HERE.)

Who do you think looks more like RA- Hugh Jackman or David Conrad?
Do you think anyone else looks like Richard?

On a totally random subject...

Ragtag, THIS is the goofy eyebrow thing Jonas Armstrong does that I was talking about! (I know some ladies -including Liisa- may get a kick out if it, but it drives me nuts. Especially combined with that little smirk in the 2nd picture. Ugh!!! haha.) A person shouldn't be judged by their brows, or smirk, but I can't help but be annoyed. I did like the RH character best in Season 2 and even thought he was cute, but watched the entire 3 Seasons for Gizzy, hands down. Don't hate me, Team Hoodie. Just tellin' it like it is. :)

Aaaaahhhhh I see now! The eyebrows on Jonas.
Hm, it's...quirky? With the smirk he looks like a frat boy, otherwise he looks a little confused and unsure. Don't you think he looks so much like a grown up Haley Joel Osment in series 1 and 2 (kid from 6th sense)?!?!!? Series 3 i didn't like the beefed up Jonas. He looked swollen with mumps.

Definitely Mr Ghost Whisperer looks more like RA than Mr Australia, but that's a pretty smooth skinned pic of him. Hugh's off-screen personality is too well-adjusted for fangirl obsessiondom! hehe. When he broods, i can't help thinking he's acting brooding, not Brooding, Brooding. If you know what i mean.

As soon as I saw RA the first time, I did immediately think of Hugh - I've had a long-standing love affair with Hugh and all my friends will testify to the fact I've been calling him my "future husband" since 1995 - tongue in cheek of course, since he's happily married. Anywho - to me, I think it was mostly about basic facial structure, build and coloring - something about the mouth - and I think apart from each other they look more alike than side-by-side. I think they look like they could be cousins or play brothers well on stage or screen. Really, I think they look alike because I love them equally! I could go on and on...but I'll shut up.

Talking about eyebrows - I'm obsessed...OBSESSED with Zachary Quinto's eyebrows. Another thing which can't be explained. A friend and I talk about them lots. I egged her on to start a websites about it, and she did! Fun times. I'll stop blabbering now!

Hey Natalie... congratulations on a fabulous blog! A friend sent me the link and I've been giggling ever since. I LOVE your lighthearted approach to your posts. Keep up the GREAT work!

On your question though, I am one of the people who thinks there is a resemblance to Jackman. In fact, I'm not the only one. [ **Warning: all married fans should try this at home!] My husband even gets Jackman and Armitage mixed up. It's always good to keep husband guessing, right? So imagine my delight when I was watching a movie with yet another tall dark haired (not well known) actor. While walking through the room, husband stops and comments, "Is that THE guy (Jackman) who looks like THE guy (Armitage)? Keeping a sober expression, I answered, "No, that's the guy, who looks like THE guy (Jackman) who looks like THE guy (Armitage)! [wink]

That being said, I don't think they are identical, but could easily pass as relations. But that's just me!

**again Natalie, thanks for the FUN blog! I will be a faithful follower!

Sorry Nat but Jonas is no way my type, with or without little smirks! Too ...boysh. Makes me think of my sons or my students. No, not my type. I've always liked dark- haired blue-eyed types soooo... Richard forever!
I agree with you, instead, in the comparison David Conard / Richard Armitage. They are definitely more similar. Nice post. Go on like this!Have a nice day you all. :)

While I love Mr. Jackman and he is probably one of the most talented performers of our day RA is just way better looking.

I have never seen any resemblance.

Great blog you have.

Another American fan here.

Hey, nice blog here!

I have always thought that GoG and Aragorn from Lord of the Rings (Vigo Mortensen) looked quite alike...

I have started watching Ghost Whisperer because David Conrad reminds me of RA so much!
