Separated at birth? Long-lost twins? Vague coincidence? It's all possible when actors look so alike they could be siblings.
Is that Zachary Quinto, the Chief Science Officer of "Star Trek Into Darkness," running from the horror of "Aftershock"? Ah, no, at second glance, that's actually Quinto's doppelganger, Eli Roth, the man who gave us "Cabin Fever" and shot Hitler full o' holes in "Inglourious Basterds."
Anyway, with "Aftershock" and the new "Trek" being released back-to-back, we figured this was the perfect time to match up our favorite Hollywood doubles as they compete for roles, attention and DNA. It's like looking into a mirror! Get More »
Actors are trained to be able to portray just about anything their role calls for, but there's one thing even the best actors can't possibly fake: Singing.
That's why we're always so impressed when actors sing on screen rather than just lip-synch some professional musician. Case in point: Next week's "Pitch Perfect," which features stars such as Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson belting out tunes like the divas they were meant to be. Get More »
They may be brothers and sisters in real life, but in the acting world, sibling actors are often fierce competitors. Sometimes they're even up for the same roles.
You could call these cases of sibling rivalry being played out on the big screen a real family affair, along the lines of "Mom always liked you best."
We've come up with a list of top actors who have competing brothers or sisters. Vote on your favorites of each brother-brother, brother-sister or sister-sister pairing -- and may the best siblings win. Get More »
Emily Deschanel is best known for her work as forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan on Fox's "Bones," which is currently in its seventh season -- and also for being the older sister of Zooey Deschanel.
Deschanel costars in the indie comedy "The Perfect Family," in which Kathleen Turner returns to the big screen as Eileen, a devout Catholic who has been nominated for Catholic Woman of the Year. The religious matriarch -- who has a recovering alcoholic husband, a son who's cheating on his wife, and a lesbian daughter (Deschanel) planning to marry her partner and have a baby with her -- is forced to examine what makes a family perfect: its appearance to the outside world, or how it feels from the inside.
We sat down with the energetic Deschanel as she talked to us about gay rights, potentially working with her sister, what's next on "Bones" and what she would do if asked to play Wonder Woman. Get More »
Zooey Deschanel has been keeping herself both busy and in the spotlight recently thanks to her hit TV sitcom "New Girl," but fans of the "(500) Days of Summer" actress have been waiting a while for her to headline a new movie. Sure, she appeared in "Our Idiot Brother" and "Your Highness" last year, but those were ensembles. When would she get a chance to really shine on the big screen again?
Is there anybody more adorkable in this world that Zooey Deschanel? The girl can pretty much do anything — just check out her movie career, her hit sitcom "New Girl" and her awesome band She & Him for proof — and she does it all while looking cute as a dozen puppies inside a basket made of Care Bears. In fact, the only human alive who even comes close to matching her all-around uberness is her "(500) Days of Summer" co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Which is why their brand new holiday duet is about to destroy the internet in the cutest way possible. Awwww! Get More »
Is it possible for two unicorns to play freely in the same pasture, their gorgeous tails glistening in the sun?
Is it possible to keep two magical pixies from falling in love and going off to play acoustic guitar serenades to each other for the rest of their lives?
The answer, it seems, is no, thanks to the sad and unceremonious split of the world's foremost Manic Pixie Dreamgirl and that sad guy from Death Cab For Cutie.
That's right, you heard it here, Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard have run out of ukulele solos and quirky jokes to tell each other, so they're doing the responsible thing and getting a divorce. Get More »
School is back in session and the summer movie season has wrapped, which means the pop-culture focus temporarily shifts to television until the annual slate of Oscar contenders and holiday blockbusters hit theaters.
This fall, though, you'll notice the new television season has a host of big movie stars transitioning to primetime, either for the first time, like Luke Wilson, or in a splashy return, like Ashton Kutcher.
While the majority of film actors are headlining high-profile series, a couple of them are lining up for key supporting roles in ensemble casts. Take a look at these 15 familiar faces and find out where you can catch them on the small screen this year. Get More »
Zooey Deschanel isn't just one of Paul Rudd's sisters in "Our Idiot Brother." She's the hottest one (no offense to Elizabeth Banks and Emily Mortimer).
Between that and her serious of roles that define adorable -- "Elf," "(500) Days of Summer," "Yes Man" -- it's difficult not to appreciate those big blue eyes and sleek, black bangs. The fact that she's also one of the rare actresses with a legit music career as well just makes her more likeable.
Come to think of it, she's so likeable and so darn attractive, that she deserves her very own Hot People Looking Hot gallery.
Whether he's playing the straightman to a band of wacky co-stars ("I Love You, Man," "Role Models") or the affable dunce ("Forgetting Sarah Marshall", "Anchorman"), Paul Rudd is always exuding charisma. The actor would have to commit a fairly heinous crime for our love to even begin to wane -- he's that charming.
Now, Rudd will put his laid back allure to the test with his new movie "Our Idiot Brother," a family comedy about a all-around nice hippie who redefines Murphy's Law. Get More »
