There have been quite a few times in my life, personally, when I’ve had people tell me, quite enthusiastically, that I absolutely HAD to watch such-and-such television show, because the main character was oh-so-incredibly-much like myself. Most recently, I was directed to watch How I Met Your Mother, because the “Barney” character reminded someone incredibly of me. Interestingly, this is the third time I have had someone tell me a NPH character reminded them of me, the others being Doogie Howser, back when I was young, and more recently Dr. Horrible. I take offense to none of them. Particularly Dr. Horrible.
That said, however, there are certainly actors who would be a lot more desirable to whom I could bear a resemblance. I don’t think any guy would be offended if they were told they resembled Captain Kirk from the new Star Trek movie. Whoever he is. I’ve been told by reliable sources that he tends to make girls all squidgy in their britches, and that’s probably something most guys would be okay with.
So how about it? Good or bad, who would you say is your science fiction doppleganger, the character in the realm of Sci-Fi who most resembles you? And, bonus question, who would your significant other or best friend say is your doppleganger?
