"That guy from Rent" must not be in their picture file.

Thanks to one of the Bs at The New Awesome, I just wasted about ten minutes of valuable work time at this website, which tells you what famous person you look like.

I uploaded this picture of myself:

First, it said I looked like this guy:Please note that it gave me old, bloated James Spader. I could have understood - maybe - young, Pretty in Pink James Spader. But shitty television actor James Spader? Ouch.

Then, there was this one:Okay, I respect Gary Oldman. He's one of my favorite actors, and in one of my favorite, favorite movies, Sid and Nancy. I don't look like him, though.

And then this bullshit:WHAT? Okay, NO. That's not true. You're only seeing the glasses, there. Obvious mistake.

Oh, don't worry. It keeps on coming:SHUT UP.

You've got to be kidding.

So basically I look like every Jewish man with glasses. And the occasional creepy British actor. Obvs.

I haven't laughed that hard at work in a really long time. Kudos, my friend.

Is that the dead Gibb brother?

That's Robin, the creepy-eyed one. Maurice is the dead one.

James Spader? Maybe. The rest... snowball's chance in hell. I played with this site a couple months ago (thanks for wasting 2 days of my life, Gawker), and my celeb lookalikes ranged from Gwyneth Paltrow to Wayne Newton. I'm just surprised that Chairman Mao or Billy Dee Williams weren't among the number of my look alikes.

Okay, I've seen the results of this website from a lot of people I know. But yours are by far the funniest. Larry King!! Oh man. Amazing.

You totally got off easy. I tried it and got, among others, Calista Flockhart and Usher.
