AMC Networks is cloning the season 3 premiere of Orphan Black and airing it across all of it U.S. Networks – IFC, AMC, WE tv, SundanceTV and BBC America on Sat, April 18 9p.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from Orphan Black, it’s that clones could be among us and we’d never know. In fact, these stars might be made from somebody else’s genetic material.

1. Will Ferrell & Chad Smith

The former SNL star has been noted to look almost exactly like Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. Although Chad probably hears “Hey, are you Will Ferrell?” more than Will gets asked about what Flea is like to work with.


2. Selena Gomez & Lucy Hale

Former Disney star Gomez bears an almost terrifying resemblance to Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale, and the pair actually do have a bit of a rivalry. At least according to some tweens we overheard gossiping in the Starbucks the other day.

3. Brad Paisley & Jeff Gordon

Mega-popular country star Paisley looks so much like NASCAR hero Jeff Gordon, the pair even made a video together. A NASCAR guy likes country music?? Who knew??


4. Amy Adams & Isla Fisher

Redheaded beauty Amy Adams looks so much like redheaded beauty Isla Fisher that people wonder if they were separated at birth. Clearly they need to star in The Ginger Snaps, a comedy about a pair of twin redheaded pop singers that we just greenlit in our mind.

5. Hilary Swank & Jennifer Garner

Speculation that Hilary Swank and Alias actress Jennifer Garner are related have dogged the pair throughout their careers. Maybe Ben Affleck is married to both of them! Now there’s your Gone Girl sequel.

6. Zachary Quinto & Eli Roth

The modern day Mr. Spock bears a serious resemblance to Hostel director and Quentin Tarantino chum Eli Roth. Perhaps Roth should grow a goatee and play the evil Mirror Universe Spock in the next Star Trek movie.

7. Elijah Wood & Mischa Barton

Let’s do a gender-flipped clone for a change. Ever notice how much former Hobbit Elijah Wood looks like The O.C. star Mischa Barton? What? This is the sort of thing you think about during late-night ice cream and O.C. binges.

8. Weird Al Yankovic & Kenny G

The master of parody music bears a fairly significant resemblance to smooth sax punchline Kenny G, don’t you think? It’s time for the duo to team up for the worst’s first accordion/sax album.

9. Javier Bardem & Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Long-time Grey’s Anatomy star Jeffrey Dean Morgan often gets mistaken on the street for Javier Bardem, but that doesn’t mean he gets to make out with Penelope Cruz. Sorry, friend-o. Hey, at least our aunt thinks you’re hunky.

10. Katy Perry & Zooey Deschanel

A slight glitch in the cloning matrix could explain the tiny differences between Katy Perry and her doppelganger Zooey Deschanel. Physically, that is. Once either opens their mouth, the resemblances stop right there.

Inauguration Alternative

It's a movie "Murray-thon" all-day Friday on IFC.

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
