Top 10 Video Game Lookalikes




Wario and Gene Shalit

When it comes to Wario lookalikes, there's a pretty short list. And although the mischievous yet strangely lovable Nintendo character has an undoubtedly distinct look, retired film critic Gene Shalit is probably as close as the human race is ever going to get to have someone that looks like the WarioWare star. Just think of Wario making pun-riddled movie reviews on The Today Show, as Shalit did for 40 years, and try to deny how irresistible that would be. Good luck.



Duke Nukem and Howie Long

Back in their respective primes, both Duke Nukem and NFL Hall of Famer Howie Long were big, tough guys you wouldn't want to see charging at you, whether or not you were a Pig Cop or an opposing quarterback. Those days are long gone, though, and while Long has built a nice post-football career for himself as a NFL analyst and ad spokesman, Nukem has, to put it nicely, lost his ways. After practically defining the term "development hell," last year's Duke Nukem Forever was widely seen as an out-of-touch embarrassment to the gaming medium. Here's hoping Duke can change his course and find success like Long has sometime soon.

Barret Wallace and Mr. T

Here's one that Final Fantasy fans far and wide have known about for fifteen years now. Final Fantasy VII's beloved gun-armed leader of AVALANCHE has a look that was clearly inspired by the American pop icon and former star of The A-Team, Laurence "Mr. T" Tureaud. While Barret won't be headlining any Wrestlemanias (as Mr. T did 27 years ago), he does kick just as much bad guy ass—with the help of Cloud, Tifa, and the rest of the FF7 crew, of course. Get your "I pity the fool" jokes out of the way now.
