Celebrity Lookalikes: Stars and Their Stunt Doubles/Stand-Ins

In The Devil’s Double, Dominic Cooper had to play two very different men: Uday Hussein (the son of Saddam) and his body double, Latif Yahia. Although Cooper took on both roles, even he had to rely on the saving grace of many actors: A stand-in who would hold the other character’s spot in scenes that featured Uday and Latif, as Cooper then recited the opposite lines.

Even in movies where the star plays only one character, he or she uses stunt doubles for fearsome action sequences, and stand-ins for the long hours between shots. We’ve found the professional doubles for Kate Beckinsale, Robert Pattinson, Lea Michele, and others… and the resemblance is quite uncanny.
