Now that training camp season has arrived, many NFL fans will look to get up-close and personal with their favorite players. Some may even be lucky to enough to run into their NFL idols out on the streets.
With that, it’s important to know exactly what someone looks like before approaching them, or else you risk a little bit of embarrassment (I’m sure many of us have been there).
For those of you fortunate enough to encounter Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, you may want to confirm that you’re not actually gawking over his celebrity doppelganger, Andre 3000.
Now, the two are definitely on different ends of the rap spectrum – one is a six-time Grammy Award winner, while the other spits bars about his favorite candy – but as you can see from the photo, they do share a little bit of resemblance.
The reigning AP Offensive Rookie of the Year isn’t the only gridiron star with a Hollywood look-a-like either. The folks over at NFL.com blessed us with an entire gallery of players and coaches with their famous doppelgangers, and some of them are spot on.
Advice to fans: take a look at all of the photos to keep track of what players have doppelgangers so that when you walk up to one, you get that autograph or picture, instead of an awkward rejection.
