Have You Ever Met Someone Who Looks Like A Fictional Character?

Some celebrities have their own doppelgangers, but in some cases fictional characters have lookalikes as well. Heck, a long-time family friend and coworker of my father is a carbon copy of Abraham Lincoln. Today, I was in line at BoJangles to get a carry out for lunch and the man in front of me was like Big Louie, the notable mob boss from TMNT (1987) come to life. He had a purple coat and a hair cut similar enough and was the same frame and had a light tan. It was like Big Louie was molded after him and I couldn't help but stare and make a puzzled face. Has anyone ever made someone that looked like a fictional character?

Not really, most I've seen is Santa Clause a few times. (Not during the holidays.) Heck, I even saw him in a line at Disney. But if they do portray Santa during the holidays then that might not quite count as much since they sorta are him in a way.

My old boss was a dead ringer for the old man from up. Sounded, and (presumably) smelled like him too.

No, I was citing an example of a real person's doppelganger. You did not read the post carefully. Like actual people who have lookalikes fictional characters do as well.

Seen a photo online before of a man that looked like him. Was that your boss or is there more than one of them?

I know the one you mean - My boss was less than that pic...but it was still uncanny how the 'tude was bang on, along with the mannerisms, hair and glasses.

The first trailer had us all wondering "who at Disney knows Dave?"

I think the title of this thread needs to be changed to "Have You Ever Met Someone Who Looks Like AN Animated Character", cause that's clearly what the OP was referring to.

In College, I had a classmate who looks like Phoebe from Hey Arnold and believe it or not, her name is Phoebe!

I once worked with someone named Maria who looks like Maria from Saved By The Bell: The New Class.

My sister looks a little like April from the 2003 TMNT cartoon.

I once had a coworker who looks like Homer from the Simpsons.
