Landon Donovan a movie star look-alike?

Every time I see U.S. soccer star Landon Donovan, I’m reminded of someone else. But who?

Then this morning, watching his World Cup goal against Slovenia, it hit me. He looks like a young John Saxon.

After perusing still photos of the two, I see less similarity. But anyway, that’s who I was thinking of. John Saxon, the actor.

What do you think? I dunno. Maybe it’s just the hair.

Landon Donovan

John Saxon

Of course, you have to be old enough to remember a young John Saxon. He’s 73 now, according to Wikipedia. And, by the way, Saxon is his stage name. He was born Carmine Orrico.


    • Actually, I was just googling Landon Donovan John Payne to see if anyone else saw the resemblance! Nice to see I’m not alone.
