- Joey Tribbiani. Most people know who Joey from tv-series Friends is. He is played by actor Matt le Blanc (born 25 juli, 1967). Later he got his own tv-series “Joey”.
- Lutger Brenninkmeijer is member of the family Brenninkmeijer, one of the richest families in Europe. Lutger Brenninkmeijer is active in the world of sports (sport management).
We do not know why, but these two really look alike. Perhaps Matt le Blanc is a nephew? Identical twin? Otherwise, it would be such a coincidence. We just can’t believe it!
A movie about Brenninkmeijer? The good news is, we already have the perfect casting for his role of Lutger, just in case there will be a movie about the family Brenninkmeijer (yes they own C&A and much more). Matt le Blanc is a perfect match.

Just look at the movement of the lips, when the upperlips go a bit upwards while the mouth remains closed (Joey in the red shirts, Lutger Brenninkmeijer in the grey shirt). These spontaneous facial expressions are difficult to imitate, but they have it both.
They have the same shape in eyebrows. The shape of the eyes is the same. The ears are similar. The nose is identical and this is not a standard model nose. The lips are the same. Also the chin and jawlines are similar. The hair style is already similar. Call us crazy, but these two really look alike, when you change the color of the skin and hair.
You know what is odd? Brenninkmeijer is the richest family in the Netherlands (except perhaps the Orange-Nassau’s). And more family members of Brenninkmeijer really do look a lot like famous people from Hollywood (like Ross Geller from Friends). What are the odds?
