Some of the best things in life often come in pairs — shoes; socks; cufflinks; earrings; Rumi & Sir Carter. The same can also be said about Hollywood movies and television shows with leading co-stars casted as siblings due to their striking resemblance.

 

We saw it work effortlessly in HBO’s hit series Euphoria with the “sisterly” bond between Storm Reid and two-time Emmy winner Zendaya. There’s also Jackée Harry & Kym Whitley as estranged sisters in the season 2 Christmas episode of Young & Hungry — loooong time coming!the surprising synergy between Wesley Snipes and Kevin Hart as crime-ridden brothers in the 2021 Netflix series True Story and most recently with Quinta Brunson and rising actress Ayo Edebiri in the current season of Abbott Elementary on ABC (seen above).

The trend has been such a success, that many have already began fancasting other doppelgänger thespians for dream projects currently existing solely in our imaginations. Shadow And Act even had a good suggestion of their own. Take a look below:

Of course, we couldn’t let them have all the fun! There are too many actors and actresses out here that are shoe-ins to play siblings in a future project, be it film or on the small screen. It could be a comedy, a drama, crime-thriller — you name it! We just want to see our selection of dream sibling duos in lights, camera and action.

Keep scrolling for our picks of acting pairs that we could easily see playing siblings. Not all are award-winning drama majors, not are a good portion of them even great actors to begin with, but we simply can’t deny the resemblance. See if you agree:

The nostrils and defining front teeth are definitely giving it away with these two! Both also have recently showed off similar “feeling myself” vibes in their beefs with Will Smith and Omarion, respectively.

Their multicultural backgrounds, penchant for action films and similarly slim body frames — no to mention those spot-on cheekbone structures! — would make this a can’t-miss hit between two certified Hollywood stars.

As B-Rocka once sang on her criminally-ignored 2004 album, Afrodisiac, “You can’t deny it a little bit!” That also rings true when it comes to her likeness to Gab U. Whatever they do, we’d believe it!

We won’t act like the “Me & U’” singer is anywhere close to being on the same acting level as Z, but she did star in the third film of the cult classic Honey franchise so there’s something to work with. Honestly though, their identically-uncanny beauty is what matters here the most.
