    It's Criminal That These 17 Sets Of Lookalike Actors Haven't Played Family Members Yet

    Let Evan Rachel Wood and Rachel Brosnahan remake The Parent Trap!

    Sometimes, Hollywood is really good at casting characters who are related to each other, but other times, it's clear the priority was not finding people who looked alike. So, here are my suggestions for actors who could play relatives in any upcoming movies or shows. You're welcome, Hollywood.

    1. Sherilyn Fenn and...

    Ginnifer Goodwin

    These two were born to play estranged sisters with a 10-year age gap, and I'm baffled that it hasn't happened yet.

    2. Olivia Wilde and...

    Summer Glau

    These two could play twins, and I would absolutely believe it without hesitation.

    3. Kathryn Hahn and...

    Kate Berlant

    Netflix, please make some hilarious comedy where Kathryn plays Kate's cool aunt. Thank you.

    4. Elle Fanning and...

    Elle Fanning

    Elizabeth Olsen

    Elizabeth Olsen

    I know these two both have famous siblings, but I really think they could convincingly play sisters.

    5. Billy Crudup and...

    I will not rest until these two play a father and son.

    6. Evan Rachel Wood and...

    Rachel Brosnahan

    I actually can't tell these two apart. Have them remake The Parent Trap.

    7. Rachel Weisz and...

    Julia Fox

    Let Julia play Rachel's daughter in a Mummy sequel, you cowards.

    8. Michelle Monaghan and...

    Michelle Monaghan

    Selma Blair

    Selma Blair

    Michelle is really just what Selma would look like if she was mashed up with Kate Beckinsale. Hollywood, do with that what you will.

    9. Sebastian Stan and...

    Sebastian Stan

    Mark Hamill

    Mark Hamill

    Mark is Sebastian's father. That's just a fact.

    10. Kate Mara and...

    Kate Mara

    Carlson Young

    Carlson Young

    Again, I know Kate has a famous sister, but this is her new sister. I'm mandating it.

    11. Margot Robbie and...

    Margot Robbie

    Jaime Pressly

    Jaime Pressly

    I actually think they should just play the same character at different ages.

    12. Demi Moore and...

    Demi Moore

    Jennifer Connelly

    Jennifer Connelly

    A movie with these two playing witchy sisters. That's all.

    13. Blake Lively and...

    Blake Lively

    Katie Cassidy

    Katie Cassidy

    If these are not sisters, then who is?

    14. Austin Butler and...

    Austin Butler

    Chord Overstreet

    Chord Overstreet

    They're clearly brothers separated at birth.

    15. Viola Davis and...

    Viola Davis

    Danai Gurira

    Danai Gurira

    Their age gap is, like, 13 years, so we could go sisters or aunt/niece. Or, same character, different ages. So many choices!

    16. Tom Felton and...

    Tom Felton

    Emily Osment

    Emily Osment

    My favorite brother/sister duo.

    17. Finally, Mariska Hargitay and...

    I will take these two in whatever form Hollywood is willing to give me.

    But you are not allowed to disagree with any of my choices! That's the law!
