We love a good Hollywood doppelgänger. There’s Reese Witherspoon and daughter Ava, Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran, and — lo and behold — Zach Braff and Dax Shepard. That’s right. We’ve just discovered that two of our most-favorite comedy dudes have almost identical bone structure.
Braff was a recent guest on Shepard’s new podcast Armchair Expert, and the duo talked about everything from childhood crushes to favorite cars to their mutual love for Natalie Portman. And at some point in the convo, Shepard mentioned how his wife Kristen Bell once took a photo of the two dudes side-by-side at an awards show, and then used a face swap app to meld their faces together. Turns out, the face meld version of the duo looked almost identical to the original…meaning they basically have the same face to begin with.
Lucky for us, looks like Bell saved the photo, and Shepard shared it on the Armchair Expert Insta account. Are you ready for this?
CRAZY, right? We’re honestly not even sure which is the before and which is the after.
And the dudes see it too. There were several moments in the conversation when Shepard literally paused just to say how weird it was looking directly at someone who looked so much like himself (“You’re getting lost in your own eyes,” Braff joked. LOL).
You can listen to the full episode here in all its twinning glory, and it’s also available on most podcast streaming services.
Now excuse us while we go try to comprehend how we never noticed this before.
