Pie-eyed: Kuyt’s totally excellent doppleganger

Alex%20Winter.JPGMy appreciation goes out to Pie-eyed lookalike queen Mimi for pointing out the incredible resemblance between Liverpool’s Dutch striker Dirk Kuyt and Bill S. Preston esquire, of Bill and Ted movie fame.

Bill was played by London-born actor Alex Winter, starring alongside a young Keanu Reeves in both 1989’s Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and the sequel two years later, Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey.

Although Winter and Kuyt have never been seen in the same room together, at 27-years-old the Liverpool forward has an excellent excuse for distancing himself from accusations of moonlighting among the Hollywood film set.

However, given some of the bogus diving that Kuyt has seen perpetrated against his team - notably by Chelsea earlier this season - the Dutchman, who was once linked with a move to Arsenal, could quickly become an expert on Oscar winning performances.

Can you do better than Mimi? Have you spotted a candidate for our Pie-eyed features? Or maybe one of your Gooner mates looks like a player or a celebrity? Then let us know using our comments section below or by emailing your photos to us at [email protected]
