A-Rod, Dave Grohl, Suge Knight among latest doppelgangers

Your voice has been heard and back by popular demand, we bring you more doppelgangers! And for the record, my wife still thinks that Hugh Jackman shops at her Ralphs.

Alex Rodriguez and Miles Austin

Not only do they play for two of the most vilified franchises in sports, but both have spotty dating records with Miles Austin being linked at one time to Kim Kardashian. A-Rod, who has been linked to Madonna and Cameron Diaz, is probably most famous for being on the arm of Kate Hudson -- who is best known for ruining the Black Crowes.

Stacy Andrews and Suge Knight

Stacy Andrews and Suge Knight not only look alike, but you should realize that Knight went to Lynwood (Calif.) High School, earned a scholarship to UNLV and went on to play for the Los Angeles Rams in 1987.

Kyle Orton and Dave Grohl

Kyle Orton once toiled in obscurity on the Bears' bench. Likewise, Dave Grohl was once overshadowed as the drummer of Nirvana. Yet somehow, we are without Kurt Cobain, while Rex Grossman is still running around.

Bam Bam Bigelow and David Hale

Let's just be honest and say that neither Bam Bam Bigelow nor David Hale could beat Giants LB Lawrence Taylor. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Associated Press

Braylon Edwards and Baron Davis

WR Braylon Edwards has the type of frame that makes it seem like he would be a pretty good basketball player. But Edwards would probably drop passes from point guard Baron Davis, too.

Associated Press

Kip Pardue and Blaine Gabbert

Kip Pardue made his name in the movie "Remember the Titans." Blaine Gabbert's job will be to beat the Titans. Yeah, I am ashamed of that last sentence, too. But come on, they look alike, right?

Dave Chappelle and Felix Jones

Can anybody else picture Cowboys RB Felix Jones running around Valley Ranch, slapping people in the face and saying, "I'm Rick James (female dog)," a la Dave Chappelle? I totally can. And if he doesn't, he certainly should.

Dolph Lundgren and Rob Gronkowski

I'd like to think that the next time Rob Gronkowski is cut on the football field, an opponent shouts, "He's not a machine, he's a man," just like Rocky did of his look-alike, Dolph Lundgren in "Rocky IV." Of course, how much money would you pay to see Gronkowski shout to Bill Belichick, "I win for me. FOR ME."

Gabe Kaplan and Franco Harris

One of these gentlemen is among the most beloved TV characters of the 1970s who provided us with many memorable moments. The other is Franco Harris. But both of them could beat Robert Conrad in a foot race, as Kaplan did in "Battle of the Network Stars."

Associated Press

Nick Mangold and Amanda Seyfried

Nick Mangold has said on his Twitter feed that he tries to find the humor in everything. Hopefully he feels that way after being compared to Amanda Seyfried.

Associated Press

Dan Marino and David Hasselhoff

Sure, David Hasselhoff was out-acted by a talking car, but Dan Marino was out-shined by a dolphin in "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective." Although if one person would have been qualified to be a judge on "America's Got Talent," you would have to lean toward Marino, right?

Associated Press

Jonathan Wilhite and Xzibit

Do you ever get the feeling that Wes Welker is going to walk out of Patriots practice one day to find that Jonathan Wilhite has "pimped" his ride? And Welker would be all, "Thanks, dude. Seriously, this pool table in the trunk is totally going to be useful." Honestly, what was up with that Xzibit?

Associated Press

Jeff Reed and Hulk Hogan

One of these men is known for having bleach blonde hair, tan skin and wearing fuchsia clothing. The other is Hulk Hogan. In the 1980s, Hogan preached to kids to train, say their prayers and eat their vitamins. Well, Steelers fans certainly did lots of praying whenever Reed was called on to make a big kick.

Lovie Smith and John Amos

John Amos delivered plenty of "Good Times" as his portrayal of James Evans Sr. in the series of the same name. Lovie Smith opened his own burger franchise called McDowell's. Oh wait, that was John Amos in "Coming to America."

Associated Press

Michael C. Hall and Greg Olsen

Fans of "Dexter" and Michael C. Hall will tell you that you might want to check Greg Olsen's bags if you ever see him cruising around Lake Michigan in a boat named the "Slice of Life." I asked Chris Cooley about this and he agreed.

Associated Press

Omar Epps and Mike Tomlin

If they ever wanted to film a sequel to the movie, "The Program," they could just have Darnell Jefferson (Omar Epps) becoming the coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers after his career is over. Somebody get Warner Brothers on the phone.
