It all started when I saw this photo of Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights), who chopped off his hair:
I prefer him better with the long hair. But since it did not seem like he shampooed a lot wearing his hair long, cutting it that short is probably doing him good.
Anyway, my immediate thought was --- he looks a lot like Barry Watson (Samantha Who/Seventh Heaven) now:
Although, these days, Barry Watson's looking a lot less like...Barry Watson.
But still, you can see the resemblance between these two actors.
Which lead me to think that If I were a showrunner, I'd cast these two stars in a TV series where they discover they are brothers separated in childhood.
I can probably make them twins separated-at-birth...coz that's trendy.
Or they could be not related, but switched at birth. :P
For spice --- and because folks might say this idea is totally unoriginal --- I'd add in a third brother/doppelganger and include Tyler Blackburn (Pretty Little Liars):
Now, there may be a slight problem with the age difference. But this is television, where ages do not matter. SIDEBAR: Finn from Glee is 30 years old IRL and he plays a high school kid.
And then one of these boys will have to be named Sam.
So I can all my show "Pretty Brothers, Separated On A Friday Night...One Asked: Sam, Who?"
So, will you watch?
Here was my first "bright" idea: If I Were A TV Showrunner
