Title: Guy Who Looks Like Ebert

It's pretty funny that he exists.  I wonder what his favourite movie is.  When I was more young I used to think he was Ebert.  What is your opinion?

Uh, I think the role to mention would be that he played President Ebert in Godzilla, the not-so-subtle jab at Siskel and Ebert.  And it also proves that he does look like Ebert a bit, and that Sleuth is not alone in his thoughts.

another guy who kinda looks like Ebert: Michael Jackson in a fat mayor suit in his movie "ghosts", a collaboration with stephen king and stanley winston.

Yeah but when the screenplay called for a President Ebert character, the makers must've said something along the lines of, "Let's get that one guy who always looks like Ebert."  So he's obviously the go-to guy to play Ebert.

How silly of me.  Of course it's obvious...since you said it and all.  I'm just fascinated because I can't imagine by what set of standards you based your opinion on.  I'm always open to new ways of seeing things.  Perhaps you could enlighten me on the similarities.
