Here’s a fun one that dawned on me yesterday after two meetings.
In the first my co-worker couldn’t come up with Ron Perlman’s name.
In the second I ended up singing Tom Waits’ “I Don’t Wanna Grow Up”
The tale of the tape (now with extra pictures!):
|Ron Perlman||Tom Waits|
|Date of Birth||April 13, 1950||December 7, 1949|
|Facial Hair||Mustache||Soul Patch|
|Romeo Is Bleeding||Film||Song|
I don’t think they’re dead-on ringers or anything, but their voices and personalities seem awfully close.
Minor connections/coincidences: As noted above Perlman was in the movie Romeo Is Bleeding (starring Gary Oldman) which took its name from a Waits song. Oldman and Waits appeared in Dracula one year prior to the release of the film version of Romeo Is Bleeding.
Maybe I should have included Oldman as well. He looks a bit like Waits.
