Doppelgangers of the Month - August

C-H-M recently noticed the striking resemblance between a young Mr Boden and Eric Clapton at a certain stage in the latter's meteoric career. The evidence is below:

-- Boden -- -- Clapton --

Dr Ferris has been musing on a similar theme and sends the following examples: "On the subject of lookalikes, I wonder if any of your readers have noticed the startling physical resemblance between the young Crickley Hill Man and the excellent film actor Philip Seymour Hoffman when he too was in his youth. There perhaps the resemblance ends because I very much doubt, however, that the Method-favouring Hoffman has ever prepared himself for a screen role by emptying dozens of overflowing elsan buckets."
-- Philip Seymour Hoffman -- -- Crickley Hill Man --

But Dr Ferris is not finished.
"Again, there is more than a passing resemblance between Crickley Hill Man and famed pop maverick David Johansen of the New York Dolls, wearing a top hat, as photographed most famously by Bob Gruen in the 1970s."

I leave readers to judge for themselves.
-- C-H-M -- -- New York Doll --
Dr Ferris didn't choose this photo of David Johansen for reasons that are inexplicable ...
