Separated at Birth?

We've been watching Fred Astaire movies lately.  I'm always surprised at what amuses or bores Bill.  He's not a fan of the acting or the supposed plots, but he does love the music and the dancing.  Fine by me; I like fluffy stuff a lot!
Bill did remark on how much Astaire resembled these other two men.  Not sure I've found the best pictures to demonstrate, but I thought I'd have a go.  Not sure 'separated at birth' works, given the dates, maybe 'distantly related'?  (How's that for being pedantic?)

Fred Astaire (1899-1987)

Stan Laurel (1890-1965)

Hugh Laurie (1959- )

What do you think?

I still can not take Mr Laurie seriously as Dr House. I keep waiting for a "What ho, Jeeves?"

There is a TV program that looks into the geneology of stars. It is interesting to see the relationships.
