Dopplegangers: - Billy Haines Edition

Unread post by Harlett O'Dowd » Tue Jan 09, 2018 10:26 am

One benefit of the flu is getting to clear out stuff from your DVR. Over the weekend, I finally went thru Fox' A CHRISTMAS STORY (the Musical) LIVE. (Meh.)

But one thing struck me - the old Man (Chris Diamantopoulos) in his formal togs looked remarkably like Billy Haines. So if anyone is thinking biopic of WISECRAKER .....

First saw him in the US/UK comedy Episodes, and weirdly he was recently here in Halifax shooting a TV series with Jane Seymour. I can see the resemblance...

Picked up my copy of Wisecracker again, and nearly finished. It occurred to me another close resemblance to Haines would be Paul "Ant-Man" Rudd, who bears a certain resemblance to the late comic actor/interior designer in some photos. Has this ever occurred to anyone else?
