Bruce Greenwood or Sam Neill?

I have, I learned tonight, been mixing up these two guys for years. Sam Neill and Bruce Greenwood. I'm not even sure I see the resemblance anymore. What do you think?



Crap. They look nothing alike. O_o What is wrong with me?

If it's any comfort, in my earlier years I had British actors Ian Richardson and Ian McKellen so confused that I don't now know which of them it was I saw play Richard III on stage. I suspect the latter but I'll probably never know for sure.

I too confused greenwood for sam neill in Star Trek, but then I saw Daybreakers one day and I clearly saw the difference

I was watching National Treasure 2 tonight, and I thought to myself--wait--is that the guy from Jurassic Park? And wasn't he Pike in Star Trek? I'm totally with you on this one.

I know they're looking for Greenwood on the new show The River. I thought, "Look no further, he's in Alcatraz!!" I agree, I thought they were the same guy!!

When I saw Greenwood in Being Julia, I thought, "Sam Neill's looking a bit different." And now, the Alcatraz ad on the subway always has me doing a double take because I know Greenwood is supposed to be lost in the Amazon, not the Bay area.

I just watched "Endless Love" and was sure it was Sam Neil who played father to the main lead actress. But when I saw the closing credits I learned it was Bruce Greenwood who played the role.

I was just watching 'The Place Beyond The Pines' and thought "hey, that's the guy from Jurassic Park!". Then after some googling I discovered they were two different people. I am glad I am not alone. I need to sit down.

I thought the same thing. I used to watch this show Nowhere Man in the 90's, and in my mind that dude was the same as the guy in Jurassic Park. I also thought it was the same dude in Lawnmower Man which is Jeff Fahey. None of these guys really look too much alike. Same vibe maybe. Sam Neill and Peter Gabriel did look alike though. Not so much anymore, but at least I got that right.
