Being a semi-professional Colin Farrell lookalike has its perks—for starters, we’d imagine meeting girls isn’t too hard when you have the same face as the 37-year-old stud.
And did we mention VIP treatment?
James Martin, Colin’s layman doppelgänger, ended up in a sticky situation recently after he was mistaken for the high-earning actor and racked up a £3,000 (or $5,000) bar tab at a club in Chelsea, London after being treated to the full VIP treatment!
“All hell let loose when we realized Colin was in fact a lookalike,” Alex Nall-Cain, owner of the club, told the Daily Mail. “This imposter took advantage and ran up a bill of over £3,000… it was disgusting behavior.”
The controversy arose when it came down to who would foot the bill.
The club owner believed it was up to James to pay the tab—but he has maintained he didn’t drink, and he shouldn’t be held responsible for their mistake.

“The only victim was me for going there and looking a bit like Colin,” he told the Mail.
While this lookalike was enough to bring about a case of mistaken identity, not all celebrity impersonators are this impressive!
