On Celebrity Look-Alikes

It struck to me today, whilst terrifying myself with the plastic-surgery-obscuring removable half-jacket on Michael Jackson's autobiography, just how much his likeness was the basis for the character design of Harry Potter's Lord Voldemort.


It's uncanny, really.
  • Removed his real hair
  • Thin, almost non-existent lips
  • Removal of the chin
  • Bleaching of the skin
  • Obsession with male children

And, of course, there's that whole ashamed-of-and-ignore-his-extended-family thing. But mostly, it's the pedophile albino boa constrictor angle.
