The other day I watched the last half of a movie on TV that I’d never caught before: “Independence Day,” made in 1996. A few minutes into it Bill Pullman, the actor playing the US president, came into view.
I was stunned. He was a ringer for Romney. I’ve said before that Romney looks like a president sent from Central Casting, but I hadn’t before realized it was literally true.
The resemblance isn’t quite as dramatic in full face closeup. But in profile and three-quarters face, and especially when the actor’s whole body is shown–the proportions of the head/body, and the proportions of the features within the head shape—it’s especially striking.
By the way, in the film the president is a former fighter pilot. More like Bush senior, and somewhat more like Bush junior, than like Romney.
