8 Celebrities Who Look So Much Like a Stranger Things Cast Member, It’s Insane!

by: on | in Celebrities | No Comments

Like everyone else on the planet (and even in the ~UpSiDe DoWn~), we’re OB-sessed with Stranger Things. Even people who don’t usually consider themselves to be fans of sci-fi can’t stop talking about the Netflix series! So, you can bet that with Season 2 underway — Halloween 2017, WHERE ARE YOU?? — the number of people falling into the Stranger Things trap is growing.

Since there’s still time before we find out what happens to Eleven, Will, Barb, etc., we’re taking a look at the young cast members’ Hollywood lookalikes. Let us tell you, they’re insane!


Lauren Mayberry

Though many believe Stranger Things' leading teen, Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler), would've been a perfect pick to play Winona Ryder's child, due to their similar qualities, look at him next to Chvrches' frontwoman, Lauren. Fraternal twins, for sure.

Elizabeth Perkins

When the Stranger Things cast graced the cover of Entertainment Weekly's annual Fall TV Preview issue earlier this year, one fan couldn't help but notice how much Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) looked like a younger version of Sarah Paulson's character in O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Marcia Clark — and the actresses agreed! MBB even referred to them as "twinneys" on Twitter.

BUT, side-by-side with Elizabeth Perkins, there's no denying who would make for a better (older) "twinney."

Daniel Roche

We can't think of anyone better to play the comedic character Dustin Henderson than Gaten Matarazzo... but London-born Daniel, from the BBC series Outnumbered, definitely got our pick (at least in the looks department) if there were to ever be a British edition of Stranger Things.

Chris Rock

We think we know where Caleb McLaughlin is headed in the next 30-40 years: right in Chris Rock's direction!

Not only could the 15-year-old actor, who plays Lucas Sinclair on the series, totally pass as the comedian's child, but he's got a great sense of humor, too.

Kieran Culkin

Hold the phone — is Noah Schnapp actually a missing member of the Culkin family?? There's a whole bunch of 'em, so one could've gotten lost in the mix.

The reason we ask is because the 12-year-old boy who portrays missing child Will Byers on Stranger Things could definitely pass as Kieran's brother — even more than Macaulay Culkin, TBH.

Emmy Rossum

If Stranger Things ever needs to age Nancy Wheeler, we know a couple 30-somethings who can do the job: Shameless' Emmy Rossum or Teen Wolf's Crystal Reed — they're slightly older clones of Natalia Dyer!

Norman Reedus

You know who would make a better father for Jonathan Byers? The star of The Walking Dead, that's who! Someone do a DNA test on him and Charlie Heaton, STAT.

Ben Schwartz

Stranger Things star Joe Keery (Steve Harrington) and the Parks & Recreation actor are well aware of their doppelganger status, after fan theories spread about Joe's character, Steve, being Ben's P&R character Jean-Ralphio's father.

Hence, why the talents met up IRL. "Dad and son meet because the Internet. @uncle_jezzy @strangerthingstv #strangertwins," Ben captioned on Instagram.

"The Upside Down Parent Trap," Ben wrote in a separate photograph, posing in matching outfits with his lookalike.
