Denis Leary is making the talk show and late-night rounds to promote his new movie, “Draft Day,” and in doing so, one anecdote has made a couple of appearances. Above, an audience member on the April 11 episode of “Rachael Ray” asks Leary which famous people he gets mistaken for.
He rattles off Willem Dafoe, Ellen DeGeneres and Jane Lynch, all of which are funny and also … yeah, we could see that.
Below, Leary expands upon the list to “Late Night” host Seth Meyers, saying that being confused for Dafoe has been happening for years, and he likes that people think he’s such a talented actor.
“For years, I’ll be in an airport and people will be like, ‘You were great in ‘Platoon’ and I’ll be like, ‘Thank you,’ because you know he’s gettin’ ‘Dumbo Drop’ someplace else. He’s done a lot of good movies, so I just take credit,” Leary says with a laugh.
Meyers has also taken the time to create some good side-by-sides of Leary and his famous doppelgangers. Which one do you think looks the most like him?
“Draft Day” is in theaters Friday, April 11.
