Rooftop Film Club


Team RFC’s Doppelgangers

Here at Team RFC, we live and breathe film. We surround ourselves with it, consume it daily and are often found having quote-offs in the stairwell at RFC HQ. So it’s no surprise that we’ve often debated who we all look like from the film world. While some took a while to figure out their film twin, others immediately had an actor or character spring to mind, and one of us just couldn’t decide at all. 

Gerry – Daniel Stern (AKA Marv from Home Alone)

With his curly hair and cheeky persona, our Gez is a shoe in for Home Alone’s most mischievous delinquent. While not quite hitting the same tall stature, Gez’s circus background means he’d probably be able to cope with most of what’s thrown at Marv. Oh, and he’s also been walked over by an elephant. Hard as nails, our Gez.


Nick – Gonzo

The straight talking Nick just so happens to be the spitting image of the world’s greatest stunt performer, The Great Gonzo. Nicknamed ‘Beaky’, the similarities between the pair are pretty apparent. We secretly believe they actually are somehow related, but alas, only Nick ‘noes’ the truth.

Kay – Gwendoline Christie

Put these two in a room together and you’ll be doing double takes for the rest of the night. Sure they kind of look like each other, but it’s not until you see a full length photo of the pair that you realise why Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Gwendoline Christie is Kay’s doppelganger. Both stand six foot three inches tall, are blonde and would probably beat you in a fight. You’ve been warned.


Harry – Beaker

Thankfully Harry’s personality is completely opposite to the shy and squeaky Beaker, but they don’t half pull the same facial expressions. Always willing to pitch in and be the team guinea pig, both also sometimes communicate in a series of random noises that we’ve yet to translate.

Chris – Christoph Waltz

While a name and looks are what brings them together, Team RFC’s Chris isn’t much like the legend that is Christoph Waltz. For a start our Chris is apparently Scottish, which came as a shock to most of us in the office as he’s a proper cockney geezer. He also had no idea his doppelganger was a James Bond villain, which made our respect for his film knowledge slip somewhat. Still, there’s no denying there’s a similarity, and we’re lucky Chris isn’t even half as evil as some of Waltz’ characters.


Jade – Sadness

Not being funny but when the first images of Inside Out were released we thought Pixar had been stalking our office for inspiration. While Jade’s still waiting for official confirmation in regards to when to expect payment, we can’t watch the film without thinking of our favourite programmer. Just look at these photos. LOOK AT THEM. THEY’RE THE SAME PERSON.


Vikki – ?

We literally have no idea who Vikki looks like. Names were thrown across the table but all immediately shut down and stated as ‘ridiculous’. It really does seem like she’s one of a kind, or perhaps her doppelganger has yet to venture into the public eye. Either way, we’re stumped. We’d love to know if you have any suggestions!
