[Editor’s note: In celebration of the holidays, we’re spending the next two Tuesdays by counting down the top 12 Flavorwire features of 2012. This post, at #11, was originally published July 6th.] If you’re anything like us, you often find yourself struggling to catch tiny glimpses of stunt doubles’ faces in action movies. There’s no way Tom Cruise is capable of all those impossible missions in Mission: Impossible, right? Thanks to a post on good ol’ Reddit, we were recently graced with 17 fascinating photos of actors side-by-side with their stunt doubles. Some look exactly alike, while others — er, we’ll let you judge stuntman Will Arnett’s hairline and stuntwoman Jennifer Lopez’s gender for yourself. We did a bit of digging to bring you even more photos of actors with their stunt doubles and stand ins, so check ’em out after the jump, and hit the comments to let us know who wins and loses the lookalike contest.
