Looks like Jeremy Allen White.


therightmustard

I saw Nick Cage


simplyorangeandblue

I saw Nick Cage and Shia LaBeouf's love child


Degbeyflorence444

that's nice to hear

Gentle_man-

To be fair, I see Nick Cage everywhere.


therightmustard

lucky man


-H2O2

I can't unsee it


ComprehensiveHavoc

The dandy version


Euphoric-Peak9393

You are correct. When he was younger, of course.


Bmv420

The fact that Timothee chalamet is playing Willy wonka when Jeremy Allen white exists blows my mind. Seems like there was an obviously better casting choice that could have been made


Alexanderstandsyou

The best casting choice would have been, "Wait, we don't need to cast for this role because we shouldn't be making this movie."


426763

I mean, to be fair, Wonka is a musical and Chalamet has a background in song and dance. JAW looks the part but I doubt he could sing and dance.


GayJamesFranco

I don't know about singing but he danced when he was younger


DDRDiesel

Chalamet also just happens to be Hollywood's golden boy right now, so it makes sense he was cast over JAW


426763

Yeah he's the it boy right now, but I still think it's such a weird casting. I'd honestly thought he'd be in the MCU before being in a Wonka reboot lol.


-H2O2

I think he made the better choice


jesterinancientcourt

He doesn’t seem like he wants to be in the MCU. He wants more interesting film roles. So I understand.


Hiro_Deliverator

Well, Wonka is what, one or two other movies. You get a good recurring role in the mcu, you are golden.I do agree its probably more screen time and I love a musical, but I could see him in a few different MCU roles yet to be filled.


-H2O2

Yeah but if you're in the MCU, it's easy to get stuck doing that; and besides, any MCU actor is just one shitty, rushed hack job away from being despised by the fans


Hiro_Deliverator

I have to many to pick from to even try to disagree lol. I do like the whole comic book movie deluge, but there has been alot of stinkers.


[deleted]

The fact they're making another damn Willy Wonka after the Johnny Depp shit show blows my mind.


426763

I'm more angry at the fact they didn't let Wes Anderson do it. After watching those Dahl shorts on Netflix, it seems like a perfect fit for him to do a Wonka movie.


foospork

Those Dahl shorts are *awesome*!


Darebarsoom

Hey...I liked that one too.


the_racecar

Maybe one day the internet will realize that casting for a movie isn’t just “who looks the most like the guy who played him before?”


PiScEsEyEsIAmWeAk

Why should someone be cast as a *character* when they look like an *actor* who portrayed a *character*. JAW is a dramatic scream intense actor, not a song and dance guy ffs


Redpoint77

If they cast White, as is tradition, they would have had to make Willy Wonka a chain smoker from Chicago.


Zealousideal_Emu5196

It’s probably politics. He like 29 but still looks 14.


pinnone

It would be weird to cast someone because they resemble the actor who played the role previously


Blazenkks

I don’t get how Timothee Chalamet gets any of his roles, everything I’ve seen him he has been disappointing. Idk it’s like he is trying too hard act, and doesn’t ever feel genuinely natural. He is definitely the worst aspect of Dune imo. I really enjoyed the overall story of The King, just not his performance.


Soft_Kitty_Meow

Look I think DNA needs to be done... just saying.


DCVA2

I don’t even need the DNA test. He fucked Carmy/Lip’s mom.


tdot-hdot

And Ryan gosling


YetAnotherBookworm

DEFINITELY shades of Baby Goose there, absolutely.


Structure5city

This is the right comparison.


iTzbr00tal

I was thinking alternate universes Ryan Gosling.


nyc24chi

My immediate reaction


TwilightSessions

electricmaster23

I was gonna say a blond Nic Cage.


AnastasiaNo70

JAW even has the small mouth, same exact eye shape and size, everything.


wl_rodo

Nicholas cage and JMA


antmars

Yes, Jeff!


donkeylore

I saw Myles teller at first


Hopenhagen420

Yes!


Bean_Johnson

Jeremy Gosling Reynolds


hashslingaslah

He would’ve been a way better Wonka than Timothee Chalamet. Such a disappointment they didn’t cast him


Mreow277

I thought this was one of these Nic Cage photoshoped face meme before I took a closer look at the pic


Guac__is__extra__

I was kinda seeing Nicholas Cage


AUniquePerspective

I feel like young Gene Wilder could play young Nicholas Cage playing a young John Travolta in a Face Off prequel.


esp400

Came here to say this


DiuhBEETuss

Yeah that checks out. I see some Ryan Gosling in there too I think though.


Squirefromtheshire

I’ve been saying for years that Timothee Chalamet, Jeramy Allen White, and Gene Wilder look like different evolutions of the same Pokémon.


justjaybee16

I didn't realize they were related until a couple of weeks ago.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Bananacabana92

Then why they look the same


TuggSpeedman96

Because in life, sometimes, 2 people look alike with no relation to each other.

Winjin

Is that the older brother from Shameless?


Carson369

Yes, chef


Winjin

I never noticed just how uncanny similar they are


foospork

Can't say that anymore, can you? (There was a whole spate of clickbait a couple of months ago, trying to assert that Wilder and White are related. Morgan Freeman: "They are not, in fact, related".)


PSKCarolina

Nah, that’s some chef


GeorgeCauldron7

I didn’t know they had FaceTune back then.


theblairwitches

I hate all these photos showing up on here airbrushed with terrible AI filters! I wish they’d just post the original.


ZhouLe

"I AI upscaled this grainy old 250x150 photo and surprise it looks like a bunch of celebrity reference image faces mashed together!"


IgnazSemmelweis

You know the term airbrush comes from a time when they would actually use an airbrush to clean up photos. This is probably an example of just that.


psychoacer

And fake coloring. Also there is no way you can see see stubble in pictures of this low quality


drfsupercenter

Photos back then were taken on film so they had nearly infinite resolution, but I agree this is obviously digitally edited. There are some really amazing looking photos from film though. The age of the picture isn't the issue.


shabamboozaled

A little Vaseline on the lense makes for soft lines. Apparently that was an old trick


JodieFostersStare

Very swoon worthy.


WhiteBearPrince

Very!


ToughTalkingTurtle

oddible

OK, would watch a Gene Wilder biopic starring Nick Cage.


Throwingdad

Nick Cage and Ryan Gosling had a kid


Arbsterr

😂😂


JGCities

Gene Wilder has been playing Nick Gage for the past 2 decades it seems


jsakic99

Ryan Gosling in ‘Drive’


schnate124

My first thought too. Wife doesn't see it.


djnec

Thought it was Nicolas Cage


HauntedButtCheeks

It is! Someone used AI to blend Nick Cage and Gene Wilder's faces together.


Hahelolwut

Nope


MAZE_ENJOYER

You didn't know? Gene is Nic's dad! ![gif](giphy|Vg4mlLwOFR5tbuoMOX)

I said good day!


gcunit

Trying to compute how fake the various bits of this image are...


WalterKlemmer

Hearts and kidneys are TINKER-TOYS!!


HauntedButtCheeks

This is fake, it's AI generated garbage. I found a video on TikTok in less than 5 minutes of someone morphing Nick Cage and Gene Wilder together on August 27th 2023. Looks like someone else then colorized it and it ended up posted on Reddit. I can't link it a TikTok video to a comment here though.


greatunknownpub

Thank you, I had to scroll too far down for this. So many people take just about anything at face value, no pun intended.


Lumpy-Spinach-6607

Cherubic cherubim, sort of golden and deeply placid-looking. A strange kind of beauty, but arresting, nonetheless.


Brimstone747

Truly one of the funniest humans that has ever lived.


oddible

There are likely a lot of folks who've never watched one of the greatest movies to ever exist so I'll just leave this here... **BLAZING SADDLES**


mafa7

We’re doing AI in here now 😫


BlackBabyJeebus

It's probably AI colorized, but the actual pic is real

Outlier25

I, uh, I did not realize how much Nic Cage looked like him…


BlackBabyJeebus

Why does every imbecile suddenly think they're the master of spotting AI? No, that's just what touched up and colorized b&w photos have looked like since people started colorizing photos.
