Having a celebrity doppelgänger isn’t too uncommon. Actually knowing your celebrity doppelgänger? That’s a more elite club.

Zach Braff and Dax Shepard might not be the first stars who come to mind when you think of lookalikes, but a face-swap Braff shared on Twitter Wednesday serves as pretty conclusive evidence.

It turns out Shepard’s wife, The Good Place star Kristen Bell, was the first to notice the similarities between the two actors.

“Years ago @ImKristenBell took a FaceSwap picture of @daxshepard and I,” Braff explained. “I’m gonna get this put on a teeshirt.”

In the first pic, the two stars stand side-by-side with one wearing a hat and one not. In the second pic, their faces are superimposed onto each other’s heads, and the differences are—admittedly—minimal.

“For me, it’s really the pictures in the left column,” Shepard replied. “I mean, it almost appears that there was no swap there.”

Honestly, yeah.
