Double, double, toil and trouble.

Not Hannibal Buress? This guy.

I'm out here at the @SpiderManMovie premiere. In theaters July 8th.

Despite what the above tweet would lead you to believe, Buress — who plays Coach Wilson in the upcoming movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming — couldn't make it to the film's LA premiere.

In a series of since-deleted tweets, the Broad City actor promised to pay $500 to someone who could attend a "special event" for him.

That's where Joe Caroll comes in.

On his Instagram, the Tennessee native describes himself as a writer, producer, director, and actor.


Caroll not only walked the red carpet, but he even did interviews about the film as Buress, and tbh, they even sound kind of alike!

Check out my red carpet interview for #SpiderManHomecoming in theaters July 7th.

When fans began to notice the ol' switcheroo, Buress gave a short, sweet, and pretty understandable explanation.

It's called extreme FOMO.
