Celebrity Look Alikes: Colin Egglesfield and Tom Cruise

Written by , Posted in General

I just saw the trailer for Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin’s new film, Something Borrowed, and the leading man looks so much like Tom Cruise I actually found it distracting.  I realize I’m terrible with the look alike game, but watch below and tell me if you agree.

    It’s the first thing I thought when I saw the trailer at the movies too. This is a young Tom Cruise.

      Thank you for saying that! There’s a certain member of my family (who will
      go unnamed) who consistently makes fun of my celebrity-look-alike
      abilities. I will send him your comment!! :)

  • Mel

    I agree when I saw this in the movie theater I leaned over and said man To Cruise looks hot and so young. Then I saw the name next to him and I was like oh.

  • Amanda_

    not only does he looks like tom cruise but he has similar mannerisms it is distracting! but then again tom cruise did alright for himself… maybe it can work for colin too!

      I’m glad you guys agree. It was really strange when I first saw him. I’m surprised no one else thought of it.

    Watching the trailer for Something Borrowed and trying to figure out if it “was” Tom Cruise. A younger Tom of course.

      Yeah it’s bizzare. It might almost work against him in his career.

  • Marlee Sherwood

    I completely agree. His mannerisms, voice, even the pink shirt and crew-cut hair on the beach scene looks like Tom from Top Gun. I feel the same way about the new Thor. He looks and acts and sound so much like Brad Pitt, that is all I can think about during each film. Is Hollywood afraid we only prefer these two actors as our leading me so they clone them in case one is busy doing another film.

      Hah! I think there’s a certain type of face that looks good on screen,
      so you’ll often see actors looking similar. For an action hero like
      Thor, you need a really big head with chizzled features.

  • Joyce Profil

     He does . i was in the theaters like is that TOM CRUISE , i legit googled it right there and then

    • http://www.theDishmaster.com The Dishmaster

      Ha! I did too! I think he seriously needs to grow out his hair or
      something because it’s slightly distracting to watch.

  • Solecita

    I totally agree!!! I just saw the movie last night and I stared at him during the whole movie. I mean, the way he smiles, and many other things are similar. He’s just missing the nose, haha.

      Who would you rather sleep with is the better question?

  • Rachel

    I’d add Sean Faris to the list.. he’s a young Tom Cruise look alike too!

  • Dwuyn Antin

    What’s genuine for me:
    1.30 yr old Harrison Ford and Eric Bana.
    2. 40 yr old Robert Redford and Brad Pitt.
    3. 30 yr old Christopher Reeves and Brandon Routh (of course..everyone knows this).
    4. Justin Chatwin and Elijah Wood.

  • Letty

    I think that they looked alike also, I told my husband the other night when we rented something borrowed that he & tom cruise looked like brothers, even my husband agreed!

  • Thurman903

    just saw the movie, Something Borrowed and i kept saying that him and Tom Cruise had to be bothers. They acted so much alike and they even look so much alike. 

  • Karen

    I just googled “the guy from Something Borrowed looks like Tom Cruise” … lol!!  Apparently I am not the only one that thinks so.  LOL!!

    • http://www.theDishmaster.com The Dishmaster

      Hah. Those two are twins.

  • Pete

    He also looks like wes bentley from American Beauty

  • Gast

    I just saw the film and thought the whole time, I know him from somewhere. But when I looked for the cast, his I thought I never heard his name before.
    Half an our after the film I suddenly realized, was it Tom Cruise in the movie ? LoL

  • Ksamsgram

    I thought all durring the movie he looked like a younger Christopher Reeves, even googled to see if it was his son(they change names sometimes), but seeing the other post, he does look like Tom Cruise also. Either way he is nice on the eyes LOL.

  • Freedomtech

    I thought the same thing when I saw the movie. I would like to see them both in a the same movie. That was be cool.

  • Phyllis_Abdulla

    I agree they look like brothers of the same mother and father!!

  • jonjo

    Colin Egglesfield and Zac Efron really are alike.

  • Jen

    I totally think so too!
