A Warning, just like the last edition of Look-e-Likes…these are going to be out there. But just to be clear, I stand behind every one of these.
Lets start off with a really good one, and the brief story of its discovery. I was listening to a podcast replay of Terry Gross’s interview of David Carr on Fresh Air. Carr is a writer for the New York Times and they were discussing his career and especially the events surrounding the documentary about the New York Times, Page One. With a little help from Netflix, I was able to insta-watch the movie. Only about ten minutes in, we got our first Look-e-Like and I still haven’t finished the movie. Without further ado, Entertainthing presents Clay Shirkey: writer, teacher, and consultant in the field of Internet Technology.
There’s only one more Look-e-Like in this edition, but I always have my eyes open for more. This one came about when I was watching TV in my room after sleeping in a bit in Las Vegas. The sun was completely blocked out by the heaviest curtains in the world and while the shower poured away in the granite studded bathroom, I lazily left the TV turned to an old episode of Law and Order: Criminal Intent. First, a non-look alike caught my attention. Her name is Callie Thorne and when I’m not sharp enough on the DVR remote, I catch her face on a promo for her show Necessary Roughness while I’m watching Psych. She’s not a feature of the article, but here’s her picture anyway.
Starring along with Callie in this episode was a guy we’ve seen a lot before, in Quantam of Solace, The Green Hornet, he’s been all over TV. But this time, looking like the stressed-out criminal boyfriend of a criminal murderer girlfriend, he looked to me an awful lot like an Emmy winner. Ty Burrell from Modern Family. David’s on the left.
I’m sure more great Look-e-Likes are just around the corner, please e-mail if you see any. Ok, one more for the road.
