This guy thought he met George Lucas at the Star Wars Celebration.

It's not every day you get to meet a celebrity. And let's face it, we all get a little star struck sometimes. How can a person not when they run into someone famous? Unfortunately, some "star struck" people jump to conclusions before actually confirming whether or not the person before their eyes are really who they think they are. In some of these situations, it's understandable if the imposter really does have a striking resemblance to the celebrity. Other situations, however, are just completely unforgivable. Check out some of the lookalike celebrities below.


It's definitely the appropriate setting to meet Mr. Lucas, but sorry this is not the man you think he is.

No, but this just might be Blake's long lost twin brother.
