Separated at Birth, 2?


A while back I was struck by a certain resemblance between pop music fad Justin Bieber and a much younger Brad Pitt. I posted about it in an entry titled, Separated at Birth. My thought was to turn the idea into a series, whereby I would discover uncanny resemblances between fly fishing personalities and their more famous Hollywood counterparts (you’ll have to give me a little leeway with the whole Brad Pitt thing—he’s not exactly a fly fishing personality, although he did star in A River Runs Through It).

Recently I was reading the latest “20 Questions” over at Eat More Brook Trout, in which Chris Hunt interviews Trout Underground founding father, Tom Chandler. Before I’d read further than:

“Tom Chandler is, if nothing else…”

It hit me, like a brick upside the head:

Tom Chandler is, if nothing else, Robin William’s much younger identical brother. And word has it they’re both fly fishermen.

One of these is Tom Chandler.

      He is taller. Wait, who? I’m so confused.

    You’ve uncovered our Dark Family Secret; I’m Robin Williams’ less-successful, not-very-funny, less-pretty-but-able-to-keep-my-hands-of-the-nanny brother.

    I did get the high nasal voice that thieving comedic bastard stole for his Mork character).

    In other words, I’m Robin Williams Lite.

      I hope, by letting the cat out of the bag, I didn’t inadvertently create a life of problems for you.

      After all, you moved to the country to get away from the paparazzi, right?

      Na-Nu Na-Nu.
