Thanksgiving Nonsense Fun With Family

On another blog I saw a link to this website:

There is a place where you can do celebrity face recognition. It's to see which "celebrity" you most favor.

So I cropped a picture of my face from a family photo (like I have individual frontal face shots of myself - I don't think so. Unless I'm applying for a visa or something).

After getting past the "register" (it's free) spot and then narrowly escaping a subscription to People magazine, I got my results.

According to myheritage I have a 72% resemblance to... (dun dun dun DUN....)

Maura Tierney (played Nurse Abby Lockhart on ER) (photo in post below)

Yeah, she's kind of a plain jane, but to the best of my knowledge, she did date everyone on ER.

Now to the better (or most amusing stuff)

Coming in at #2 with 64% match is... Sarah Michelle Geller

I Am Not Kidding.

If you don't know her : Buffy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer - also Daphne from the Scooby Doo movies. (married to Freddie Prince Jr)

There were several other "matches" going down to Jessica Alba and Sinead O'Conner at 55% and 53%.

I'm only revealing the beautiful people (whom I recognize)- it did also match me with Leelee Sobieski at 63% and and Asian actress and some old lady, as well as other people I've never heard of.

Later when I tried another picture of myself - half the matches were Men. Lovely.

Actually, most of my "matches" went according to the shape of my face. I have a long, perfectly rectangular face. Most of the "celebrities" matched to me had the same shaped face.

Try it and let me know who you "match." (hard to believe, but my "comment section" actually works.

Oh, I did O. too, he most closely matched Cuba Gooding Jr at 64%. Uh, not really. (They went for dark skinned men with facial hair for O.)

More important than her "ER" run is Maura Tierney's role on "News Radio".

My wife and I did this thing at one point and we were not impressed with the choices. I can't remember them, though. I'm sure I was, you know, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck.
