'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug': Evangeline Lilly Looks Like Everything But an Elf in New Pic

First of all, who let the artist formerly known as Kate Austen into the woods? (Doesn't every Lost fan know letting Kate Austen into the woods only leads to death?)

Secondly, as much as I'm excited to see Evangeline Lilly star in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Entertainment Weekly's new photo of the actress as elf Tauriel has me seeing double. Or, rather, quintuple.

Because Tauriel looks like at least six other famous characters in pop culture. An interesting choice for director Peter Jackson, who conceived Tauriel, the head of the Mirkwood Elven guard, purely for the film. (The character does not exist in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth.) Lilly's character is indeed striking, but hardly boasts the unique looks for her Middle Earth cohorts.

Instead, she boasts the not-so-unique looks of these folks:

Robin Hood

Peter Pan

Princess Merida

Poison Ivy

Julianne Moore

Anyone else seeing nothing but red?
