23 Times TV Shows And Movies Straight-Up Just Hit Copy And Paste On A Character From Another TV Show Or Movie

    Two sides of the same coin, one might say.

    There are a million TV shows and movies out there, so it makes sense that some have similar themes, tropes, and characters.

    But there are times when I'm watching a TV show or movie and think, Hang on...I've seen this exact character before.

    Here are 21 examples of TV and movie characters that are low-key the same person.

    1. Chandler from Friends and Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    For example..."I'm not great at the advice. Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?" 100% sounds like something either of them would say.

    2. Dan from Gossip Girl and Jughead from Riverdale

    3. But also, like....Dan from Gossip Girl and Joe from You

    I mean, is this Dan or Joe? The world will never know!!

    4. Robocop from Robocop and Inspector Gadget from Inspector Gadget

    5. By that measure, Walter from Breaking Bad and Nancy from Weeds

    6. Also in that vein...Matilda from Matilda and Carrie from Carrie

    I mean....this could easily have been Matilda in 10 years.

    7. Syndrome from The Incredibles and Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far from Home

    8. Troy from High School Musical, Eddie from Eddie's Million Dollar Cook-Off, and Izzy from Jump In

    9. ...And all of their dads

    Literally, any dad from these three movies:

    And literally every son:

    10. Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Stefan from The Vampire Diaries

    Like, here's Wesley making fun of Angel and his relationship with Buffy...but he could easily be talking about Stefan and Elena.

    11. ...And also kind of Edward from Twilight

    Edward looking at Elena

    12. Seth from The O.C. and Stiles from Teen Wolf

    I mean, here's Seth...

    And here's Stiles.

    13. Leslie from Parks and Recreation and Ted from Ted Lasso

    14. Roy from Ted Lasso and Derek from Teen Wolf

    15. Joey from Friends and Andy from Parks and Recreation

    Like, this would 100% be Joey and Andy meeting:

    16. And also...Bolin from The Legend of Korra


    He's clearly a fellow animal and food lover.

    17. AND Jason from The Good Place

    Jason with Tahani

    I mean, this...

    ...Has the same energy as this:

    Andy saying he found all 3 differences between 2 pictures on parks and recreation and ron telling him they're two completely different photos

    18. Brooke from One Tree Hill and Summer from The O.C.

    19. Tony Stark from the MCU and Doctor Strange from the MCU

    20. Haley from Modern Family and Alexis from Schitt's Creek

    I mean, is this not something Alexis would say?

    21. ...And also Lindsay from Arrested Development


    This sure feels like an early Alexis quote to me.

    22. And on that note, also Michael from Arrested Development and Johnny from Schitt's Creek

    Like, I'm pretty sure this is how Michael always feels around his family.
