Mia Jones: Ever since watching Single White Female, I have literally never looked at a pair of high heels the same way again. The pair I’d like to put together could probably do some damage with a pair of Converse. There’s a good chance the age difference between my ladies would be a bit gross, but at the same time super hot.
I would love to see Skins‘ Kaya Scodelario and Kate Moennig do a battle of the over-sexed, over-drugged misunderstood lady with a heart of gold who has problems letting people get close to them. Really, I just want any excuse to see either one of them on screen for a substantial amount of time.
Jamie Murnane: I didn’t know a thing about JoJo, other than she is actually not Lindsay Lohan or her sister, Ali. But every time I saw a preview for the 2006 film Aquamarine, starring Joanna “JoJo” Levesque, I was pretty confused. Eventually, I figured out this Lohan-alike was the pop singer behind brief hits like “Leave (Get Out)” and “Too Little Too Late.”
Clearly, JoJo was totally trying to be Lindsay, so while the two would make a great hypothetical Single White Female-esque pairing, we’re too late — it’s already happened in real life. (You know: LiLo, JoJo.) I bet JoJo’s not even a natural redhead. Good thing Samantha Ronson got out of the picture before she ended up with a stiletto in her eye. Yikes.
Anyway, JoJo wasn’t that successful because “Rumors” and “Bossy” are such better songs, and a film about teens befriending a mermaid who winds up in their pool is certainly no Mean Girls (aka the best film of all time). Then again, no one wants to be mistaken for the girl in and out of rehab.
Dara Nai: There are an inordinate number of hot ladies who look like other hot ladies. Why? Who knows. Let’s not question the bounty the universe bestows upon us. But if we’re talking about SWF dopplegangers, these two just about cover it.
Amaia Salamanca and Kate French.
One played Niki Stevens on The L Word; the other appeared in a couple of episodes of Los Hombres de Paco and a telenovela with the Best. Title. Ever, Without Breasts There Is No Paradise. That one was clearly written by Captain Obvious.
Which is which? I’m not going to tell you. Not because I’m being coy, but because I’m not sure at this point.
Dorothy Snarker: The first time I saw Anna Torv I thought, Cate Blanchett has a younger sister and she’s in the FBI. Right, so clearly I have a tenuous grasp on the separation between fiction and reality, but I digress. They’re the perfect doppelgängers. Both actresses are Australian. Both are blonde. Both are beautiful. Both are bright. Both look great in suits. Etc., etc., etc.
So my dream doppelganger movie starring these two would be a reimagining of the classic sister psychodrama Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. But instead of being aging sisters, they’re young and vibrant and crazy as hell. The drinking! The murder! The parakeet dinners! God, it would be the most fierce, frightening, fabulous remake ever — bonus points if they get to use their natural Australian accents.
