Think that's Colin Farrell in the picture above? Think again.

James Martin is a London-born entertainer and he is the absolute IMAGE of the Irish actor so much so that he regularly  impersonates him on a professional basis. He's been profiled as part of a new Channel 4 series, Lookalikes, and we reckon he could make a lifelong career out of standing in for Colin. 

But while Colin is well known for being admired amongst the female population of Ireland, the opposite seems to be true for his non-biological twin. 

The Londoner said the fact that he looks so similar to the actor has stopped women wanting to date him as they are a bit put off by it. 

29-year-old James constantly gets asked for his autograph but he told the Irish Mirror that he's single and finds it a "struggle to get a nice girl". 

His trouble with the ladies seems to come from Colin's bad boy persona, as women "assume I’m a typical hell-raising womaniser, and some are weird about how much I look like Colin," according to James.

The doppelganger said business as an impersonator has been slow for the past few years as Colin hasn't been landing any leading roles in Hollywood blockbusters. 

Channel 4's new show follows Andy Harmer, the head of celebrity impersonation agency Lookalikes. Himself a David Beckham impersonator, Andy has around 270 lookalikes on his books.

Also starring on the show is this Ed Sheeran wannabe:

And this Gordon Ramsay lookalike who is extremely convincing:

Colin's identical twin still gets our vote though.

If we hadn’t seen the photos, we never would have believed it – but isn’t the resemblance between a make-up free Katy Perry and Loki from The Avengers actually uncanny?

We’re not saying that the singer looks bad without her slap – she certainly does not, but it’s just that smile. And that nose. And the shape of her head.

Watch her morph into Loki in this gif – we are mesmerised.

A Texan football coach has become an Internet sensation for not only being super hot, but also for apparently bearing a striking resemblance to Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling!

The Texas Tech University coach Kliff Kingsbury (cool name, no?!) has been flooded with attention from fans from across the world.

A poolside snap of 34-year-old Kliff posing with two bikini clad women (whatevs) has gone viral, and the coach has even featured in ESPN’s SportsNation where he read out Twitter posts from adoring fans.

Yes, really!

Soooo…what do you think? The jury’s still out with us!

If the music business doesn’t work out for him, Liam Payne is considering a career as a David Beckham lookalike.

The One Direction star attended the launch party for Beck’s H&M swimwear collection last week and it was pointed out how much the pair look like each other!

Liam said, ”People have been saying that a lot recently. It’s probably the most flattering thing anybody can say.

”Becks is pretty much a legend and a hero of all of ours and I do really admire his style. I don’t think anyone can match him but I’ll take it.

”If it all packs in, at least I’ll have a job as a lookalike.”

However, the 20-year-old star is worried that his fans think he’s copying David’s style a little too much, as they both have matching quiff hairstyles, tattoos on their arms and a similar taste in clothes.

Liam said, ”The fans are always pointing it out on Twitter. I’m beginning to worry he’ll think I’m a stalker.

”They make out like if he buys a red jumper, the next day I’m out in a red jumper. I just think the man is a legend.”
