Former 'Buffy' Star Perfectly Recreates Iconic Celeb Looks And Instagram Can't Get Enough

Tom Lenk is likely a familiar face to any fans of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. He played nerd boy Andrew on the series, a creative individual with a habit of making up stories at every opportunity. An actor doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with their character’s direction, but Lenk is clearly as dramatic in real life as he was on TV. 

His Instagram account is a deluge of creativity in the form of mocking other celebrities:

It’s doubtful that Lenk considers it mocking, actually; each photo really looks like an homage to favorite looks sported by (mostly) female stars. The handmade creations assembled from what appears to be largely household goods are inspiring, hilarious and fierce as hell:

Oprah Looks Incredible As A Space Witch In These New 'Wrinkle In Time' Photos

Entertainment Weekly published the first stills from the upcoming A Wrinkle In Time today, and it’s got us so excited we wish we could make a tesseract so we could see it TODAY. 

In case you haven’t been following, the upcoming movie based on your favorite YA novel about inter-dimensional physics is being directed by Selma and 13th director Ava DuVernay, who with this picture will be the first African-American woman to direct a movie with a budget of over $ 100 million. And not only does the movie have an actual auteur director, the cast—which includes Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, and Chris Pine—is basically perfect. This movie could be really good, y’all!

The plot follows Meg Murray, an awkward teenage girl (played by 12 Years A Slave actress Storm Reid) who partners with three eccentric old maids to find her missing father (Pine). It helps that those three women—Mrs. Whatsit (Witherspoon), Mrs. Who (Kaling), and Mrs. Which (Winfrey)—turn out to be intergalactic shapeshifters who can travel through time and space. 

So yeah, it made sense to cast the three women in Hollywood you’d most want to have as your aunts to play these roles, as DuVernay explained to the magazine—especially the no-brainer of casting Oprah.

“I mean, when you’re trying to cast the wisest woman in the world, what’s the question? You go and you call her and you’re glad that you have her number on speed dial,” DuVernay said. “[The character] is so much of what she teaches and shared through her shows over the years, through her magazine and OWN, about owning your light and conquering darkness and how we have to power ourselves through this life in a certain way and look out for each other. She dropped into the character so well, but it’s also Oprah. When we see her in Henrietta Lacks, she’s not Oprah to me. When I saw her in The Butler, she became Gloria to me. But in this, because of the things that Mrs. Which says, her Oprah-ness is really helpful.”

The Entertainment Weekly slideshow also features photos of Pine and Reid—Reid looks like an adorable, perfect Meg Murray—if you wanna join me in nerding out more.

And oh: there’s gonna be a trailer real soon.

Eric Trump Got A New Haircut, And Twitter Thinks It Looks Strangely Familiar

Hairstyles can be Iconic, from Liza Minnelli’s signature Vidal Sassoon cut to the 90s mullet and everything in between. So when someone, especially a person in politics, gets a fresh new cut, they must be prepared to receive criticism. That’s exactly where Eric Trump now finds himself.

Here’s what Eric Trump looked like before his new cut.

Here’s the new haircut.

People keep thinking his new haircut looks like Richard Spencer.

Even Richard Spencer tweeted about it.

Where others are a bit more haunting in their comparison to fascism.

An unofficial but common name for this haircut has been a “Hitler youth cut.” As of the last couple of years the alt right have reinstated the haircut as part of their fascist beliefs. Whether Eric Trump intended on making a political statement or not, it definitely appears he has.

This Woman Named Barbara Looks Exactly Like Barb From 'Stranger Things' And People Are Freaking Out

Perhaps one of the greatest injustices of Netflix original shows was the apparent demise of Barb in Stranger Things. No apologies for the spoiler alert — it’s your fault for not watching yet). 

The one character who seems to have a good head on her shoulders (and who doesn’t get caught up in personal drama) perishes! Naturally, the good people who sit on couches and binge watch new Netflix shows were pretty outraged by this development. 

But one Redditor has some evidence that is making Stranger Things fans feel a little bit better… Perhaps Barb lives and is thriving today!

Redditor jujuness uploaded the following photo of a coworker and it is blowing everyone’s minds.

And it gets crazier. The photo is captioned:

My coworker brought in her senior picture from the 80’s. Also her name is Barbra and goes by Barb.

HER NAME IS BARB. GUYS, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN???

We knew that season 1 couldn’t be the end of Barb!

The photo has blown up overnight; the Barb doppelganger received over 400,000 views. 

Reddit was relieved to hear the news, especially after the months of uncertainty about Barb’s fate. 

I think we finally found Barb.

Oh thank god she’s safe. Can’t believe it, but she’s a tough cookie.

She was in accounting the whole time.

This calls into question those disclaimers are the beginning…

“Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead is purely coincidental…”
Yeah, right!

caoliq

This level of similarity is no coincidence. 

Do the producers of the show know about this??

Someone tweet this shit at the official ST account.

They might have to change the storyline, now.

Steve Harvey Meets Contestant That Looks Exactly Like Him On Family Feud

Steve Harvey and Family Feud were a match made in heaven. His reactions were so great that people began uploading them to the net before Family Feud decided to start uploading clips themselves and prompted those that have never bothered with the show to scroll through footage for hours at a time.

His reactions to the over the top answers some contestants give him are really what everyone looks forward to.  With each new episode that airs, you can see his faith in mankind diminish more and more, along with his will to continue hosting the show.

On a recent episode that aired, something interesting happened; one of the contestants shared an uncanny resemblance to the host, all the way down to his signature mustache and inquiring facial expression.  

The guest insisted that he should be compensated to some degree for constantly being mistaken for Steve Harvey, who countered by pointing out one very important difference between the two.  Take a look:
