Separated At Birth: Sasha Alexander & Jessica Capshaw

I’ll cop to being a co-viewer of Grey’s Anatomy (mostly at the behest of my wife, Jenn) but it is an entertaining show.

While the music used to be a lot better, and there have certainly been more cringe-inducing, shark-jumping moments as the melodrama has wound its way through 6 seasons (and a spin-off), I do enjoy seeing a new cast of characters joining the ensemble every season.

Jenn & I were also fairly devout viewers (fans is too strong a term) of Dawson’s Creek. Early WB shows were like Crack and Dawson & Company were the biggest pushers. This explains my still-lingering attraction to Joey Potter (aka Mrs. Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes).

One of the better characters in that series was Gretchen Witter played by Sasha Alexander. She was a good older sister counterpoint to the delinquent Pacey and was a nice non-Joey love interest for Dawson.

Ok. I’m far to familiar and invested in the fictional lives of the people in the Dawson-verse. Backing away from the keyboard now.

Anyhow, I just figured that Grey’s Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and Dawson’s Gretchen (Sasha Alexander) looked (and sounded) very similar.

Hence the post.
