Astounding Resemblance: Pope Francis I and the Actor Who Played Peron


It's said that everyone has a doppelganger somewhere else on earth.  An exact copy of one's self.

What do you think?

Is British actor, Jonathan Pryce the doppelganger of the new Pope?

Pope Francis I,  or  Cardinal Jorge Maria Bergoglio as he was formerly known, hails from Argentina.

Jonathan Pryce played dictator Juan Peron vis a vis Madonna in the film version of Evita.  Remember "Don't cry for me, Argentina"?

Any tears there now are tears of joy.

  • Oh No! Jonathan Pryce from 'Something wicked this way comes', way to jinx the new Pope, Aquinas.

    On the other hand, the man's 76 years old, you could of put Yoda up there and got the same effect.

    Dominus Vobiscum.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    Probably Yoda would be closer. Price's head is too long.

    However, I do remember a take-off on Evita called Velveeta. Maybe someone from that. When someone mentioned that, they also said "was she grilled?"

  • In reply to jack:

    Well, she was the big cheese in Argentina for a while.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    Sit vis nobiscum.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Ha! Nice.

  • Hi! I was thinking about this resemblance while I was reading an article from my local online newspaper in Belgium. I was wondering if someone else had the same thought.

    Just look at the first picture from the link below... The new Pope or Jonathan Pryce?

  • In reply to Alecto:

    Alecto, it could be either. Thanks for sharing.
