Tonight Show Look-A-Likes

Most of you by now are familiar with the news that new Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon has just run off his first three editions of the classic late night television program to pretty good reviews. If you are among our crowd of teeming tube-tied masses, then you probably also are familiar with another little tie-binding connection of the latest show version to the original host show from 1954:

Current Fallon announcer/second banana Steve Higgins bears an eerie facial similarity and comedic attitude to original 1954 host Steven Allen – and some of you know how crazy I am over look-a-likes. (Check out a distant past piece I did here at The Pecan Park Eagle on NFL Houston Texans owner Bob McNair and “Clockwork Orange” actor Malcolm McDowell as he now looks as an older actor.

Here are today’s TV look-a-like specimens:

Oh, in case you forgot, here’s the Houston Texans owner Bob McNair/actor Malcolm McDowell match up:

Here’s another one for the road. Rice baseball coach Wayne Graham (below left) isn’t exactly a look-a-like for actor Russ Brown, the actor who played the manager of the hapless Washington Senators in the movie version of “Damn Yankees,” but he has the slim aging physique, the white hair, and the head shape and facial features that make Graham and Brown look enough like older baseball guy brothers to be related.

Below right, Brown is getting ready to tell his Washington players that “they gotta have heart!”
