Movie Brothers and Sisters

I’ve always had a thing for seeing similarities in individuals, sometimes in looks, sometimes in voice or character… and I’ve always had an informal list of actors I would love to see play siblings. Some could play brothers or sister on looks alone (Jeremy Irons & Hank Azaria, Hans Matheson, Jerod Leto) while others just seem like they have a similar presence (Dennis Haysbert & William Clark Duncan)

So…. Purely for fun and “thoughts to ponder” I present my list of actors who should play brothers and sisters…..

William H Macy and David Caruso


Geoffrey Rush and James Woods


Jodie Foster and Helen Hunt


Melanie Griffith and Meg Ryan (Actually these two with Jodie Foster and Helen Hunt could ALL play sisters... maybe for an older version of "Little Women" lol)


Mel Gibson and Kurt Russell


Hilary Swank and Julia Roberts


Patrick Dempsey and Sean Penn


Craig Ferguson and Gabriel Byrne


Ben Kingsley and F. Murray Abraham


Billy Bob Thornton and John Malcovich

Tobin Bell and Malcolm McDowell


Bill Pullman and Jeff Daniels


Tom Sizemore and Colm Meaney



Jason Isaacs and Mandy Patinkin


Michael Madsen and Tom Sizemore


Michael Keaton and Howie Mandell


Pete Postlethwaite (R.I.P.) and Ian McKellen


Hank Azaria and Jeremy Irons


Kiera Knightingly and Natalie Portman


Laura Linney and Tia Leoni


Dennis Haysbert and William Clarke Duncan


Ed Begley Jr. and Bruce Davison


Ray Liotta and Kevin Bacon


Viggo Mortensen and Eric Bana


Helena Bonham Carter and Rachel McAdams


Hanz Matheson and Jerod Leto

Do you agree? Have any other suggestions? It's kinda' a fun mental exercize!

  1. Thats a pretty impressive list you've compiled Charles.
    In the late 80's and 90's I used to think Michelle Pfeiffer and Meg Ryan looked enough alike to play sisters and Kurt Russell and Mel Gibson who you paired as look alikes have done a movie together,Tequila Sunrise although they played best friends rather than brothers.
    Thanks for an enjoyable post.
