Celebrity Lookalikes: New Superman Henry Cavill Has The Same Face As Everyone In Hollywood

We had to stare at this EW cover for whole moments to figure out who was on it. It’s Henry Cavill, of course, the new English Superman, but four or five other actors came to mind before we noticed that big “S.” We guess having such an everyman face (okay, the most attractive everyman in the galaxy) bodes well for that whole putting on a pair of glasses and secretly turning into Clark Kent thing. Take a look at Henry’s lookalikes and let us know if we forgot anyone. More »
