The upcoming return of Shadowhunters is leaving all fans of Cassie Clare‘s The Mortal Instruments series on the edges of their seats. Honestly, we can’t wait! That’s why we asked for our stockings to be filled with stele pens and rune tattoos rather than the usual toiletries and chocolates. BOR-ing.
With the second season of the Freeform drama looming over our heads, we got to thinkin’ about the 2013 movie. You know, the one that was supposed to lead to a franchise but tanked at the box office. While we guess that it worked out the best — ’cause, who knows, then the television show may’ve never happened — we can’t help but think of the original cast; particularly, the OG Jace, Jamie Campbell Bower.
Don’t get us wrong, we absolutely love ourselves some Dom Sherwood; he’s bad-ass, he’s bae, plus he’s super cool to hang out with IRL (we know from experience #notsohumblebrag) — but we also love ourselves some JCB. So, along with looking at all the roles he could’ve had, we’re taking a peek at all the stars people actually think look like the 28-year-old English actor. (FYI, very few of them do, but it’s still fun.)
1. Dom Sherwood — LBH, if they weren’t cast as the same character, no one would’ve made this argument.

JCB doesn’t look all that much like his supposed doppelgangers, but Lily Collins sure does:
When watching the two of them side-by-side in Love, Rosie, there was something almost sister-like about their features. Could it be the eyes? The eyebrows? The cheekbones? Probably a combination of the three.
Cover their eyes and they're practically clones. Hair! Nose! EYEBROWS!!!
If you're thinking the two look like they could be mother and daughter, you're not the only one. The Oscar-winning actress, who is 18 years older than the Mortal Instruments star, plays Lil's mom in 2012's Stuck in Love. (We're betting their thick brows helped seal the deal.)
In case you ever wondered what a Latina Lily would look like, look no further than the Make It or Break It alum.
There's a reason why Lil's done so many photo shoots and side-by-side comparisons to the late, great icon — it's because the 27-year-old is the Breakfast at Tiffany's legend's modern-day doppelganger!
We're not too familiar with the Filipino British model/actress, but she comes up a lot when you look up Lily Collins Lookalikes.
