Paul Ryan Look-A-Likes: Matthew Morrison, Paul Rudd & More (Photos)

When Mitt Romney announced his right-hand man, Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan, we couldn’t help but think: He sure does look familiar. From Paul Rudd to Matthew Morrison, here’s a rundown of some of the VP candidate’s most convincing doppelgängers.

Paul Rudd

What’s the difference between funnyman Paul Rudd and GOP VP candidate Paul Ryan? Political agendas aside, not a lot. The pair share the same first name, initials, and with dark hair and a similar smirk, the two could pass as brothers. Or twins—they’re only 9 months apart in age.

Zach Woods

Actor Zach Woods is known for playing Gabe Lewis on the American version of The Office. A mild-mannered corporate liaison with occasional aggravated outbursts, we wonder if Ryan would take office with a similar attitude.

Matthew Morrison

Glee’s Will Schuester,  the singing, dancing, butt-chinned, vest-wearing teacher, has an eerie resemblance to the possible VP. While Morrison’s character receives daily scrutiny from Cheerios captain Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch), her verbal abuse would surely be child’s play compared with criticism Ryan will face in the upcoming months.

Ryan Park

The eternally smiling (in an almost creepy kind of way) dating-show contestant received mixed reviews on Season 7 of The Bachelorette. If Paul Ryan wants a rose, he’ll have to have better luck than his reality-TV show dopplegänger who got booted off before the season finale.

Young Alex Trebek

Game-show host Alex Trebek looked a lot like recently nominated GOP VP Paul Ryan way back when. And while the likelihood of these two joining forces is slim, it’s not impossible. In May, Trebek offered himself as a contender to host a political debate, telling CBS News, “What bothers me about some of the political debates that I have seen is that…it’s all so predictable.”

B.J. Novak

Known off and on the screen, B.J. Novak is both a writer for The Office as well as a star on the show. Portraying douchebag Ryan Howard, who once went bleached-blonde, Novak has the same puppy-dog eyes and jawline of our newest GOP running mate.

James Badge Dale

The lesser-known actor James Badge Dale takes on roles in action flicks and shows like The Grey, Rubicon, and the upcoming Iron Man 3. While we can assume Paul Ryan won’t be starring in any thrillers before the upcoming election, it’s safe to say he’ll be getting his hands dirty just the same.

Seth Meyers

If there were ever an actor to portray Romney’s right-hand man on SNL, it would have to be show regular Seth Meyers. For just like Tina Fey’s uncanny resemblance to Sarah Palin, with a little hair gel and inflection of voice, Meyers could fool us all.
