Which celebrities do you mix up with each other?

I'm usually pretty good about associating actors with their names, but there's always some group of people I just have trouble with. The most recent exercise for me was with Dustin Hoffman, Gene Hackman, and Anthony Hopkins. I kept thinking Gene Hackman was Dustin Hoffman, so when trying to think of the actor who was in The Graduate I was like "no that is not [person who looks like Gene Hackman]" but I could not remember his name. That led to the untangling mental exercise I did to properly distinguish these 3 guys. Now hopefully I will not have this problem again.

But, what about you??

The don't look similar but in film and TV they have similar voices and play similar roles (cops, gangsters, sleazy lawyers)

I tend to mix up Warren Ellis and Garth Ennis a lot, for some reason. UK comic authors with similar-sounding last names, writing violent and edgy comics during the 90s. Of course, this mixup has become especially unfortunate in recent years...
 

Purple

(She/Her)
The blonde girl in whatever obscure horror movie I am watching and the other blonde girl in whatever obscure horror movie I am watching. I swear it's like they cast for just one character narrow things down to a handful of people, then everyone who made the finals gets to fill out the rest of the cast.

Slightly more seriously, this is weird but my brain will never stop insisting that both Death Becomes Her and Scrooged prominently feature Rick Morranis. It's actually respectively Bruce Willis and Bobcat Goldthwait but I swear those roles were written with him in mind and they both did their best to channel him.

This one gets me a lot too.

This is an older one, but Clark Gable and Cary Grant get confused in my head.
