Will Ferrell & the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Drummer Are Identical: 9 More Celebs With Rockstar Doppelgangers
Why is Will Ferrell holding up a whiteboard that says "Chad Smith"? Because that's not Will Ferrell, it's Chad Smith, the drummer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Smith is tired of constantly getting mistaken for Ferrell, so naturally, he challenged the comedian to a drum battle in a video posted on Funny or Die's Instagram.
Smith dissed Ferrell's drumming abilities, saying in a Reddit AMA that "....his cowbell work is well-documented, but his drumset skills are nominal based on Step Brothers the film. Other than wiping his testicles on the drums, which of course I give high marks to." Despite the insults, Ferrell accepted the challenge in the same AMA on the condition that they would first raise $300,000 for Cancer for College.
Smith and Ferrell's drum battle should be an interesting showdown, but Ferrell isn't the only celebrity with a musical doppelgänger. Here are some celebrity-rockstar look-a-likes who we'd love to see battle it out onstage...
Hint: if you take a look at Depp’s makeup in Sweeney Todd, you’ll be able to guess this one right away.
Sure, Depp can play the guitar, but it’s hard to believe that he’d be able to beat out the guy who’s been in three successful bands (and then some).
The sunglasses, the stringy, dark hair, the smarmy smile…it could only be…
We’ll never be able to know what a battle between the famous Lost Boy and the posterboy for American dubstep would look like, but one thing’s for sure: it would not be pretty.
Ferrell isn’t the only Saturday Night Live alum with a musical doppelgänger…
Not only is the singer-songwriter-piano man Dana Carvey’s lookalike, he also has his own doppelgänger: Chatroulette improv piano player Metron.
The New Girl star’s resemblance to a certain singer has been well-documented…
But it’s still uncanny how much they look alike. Although, if these two were to enter into a musical battle, it’s highly likely that Perry might actually lose.
Sure, the actor’s doppelgänger may be just a musician instead of someone capable of playing multiple frightening villains, but they both have the kind of serious faces that will haunt your nightmares.
If only Spacey had appeared in Garden State, then he’d have a real six-degrees-away kind of connection with the lead singer of The Shins.
These two may have nothing in common other than their look and generally spending a lot of time traipsing the wilderness…
Father John Misty
But rather than having a musical battle, it’d be more interesting to see if former Fleet Foxes member J. Tillman could protect you from zombies like Rick Grimes.
Hint: both men would probably describe themselves in Spanish as “Soy un perdedor.”
The receding chins! The awkward public faces! The peach fuzz mustache! The musician is a dead ringer for the Arrested Development actor.
According to the Internet, this one is obvious. But I don’t really see it… maybe the sunglasses will help?
Still nope. But regardless, please keep these two out of any musical showdown, for it promises to be nothing but obnoxious.
The Clueless actress hasn’t aged since the ’90s. Maybe this singer will be just as eternally youthful, instead of disparately so?
Now I have a strange urge to see Santigold do a cover of “Rollin’ with My Homies.”
