Doppelgangers — Star Trek Generations
It is always interesting seeing familiar faces in the next generation(s) of celebrities. Here are a couple of Star Trek lookalikes.
Ryan Eggold, age 31, played Tom Keen in The Blacklist
Eggold has the same cold, calm, steely look that Spiner has. Their's is the kind of face that can unnerve you because you can see they have very controlled emotions and that they just might become "cold, unfeeling killers" in an instant. The cold characters they played (i.e. Tom Keen, Data, Lore) were perfect for them.
Johnny Galecki, age 40, played Leonard in The Big Bang Theory
Considering there are plenty of Star Trek references in The Big Bang Theory (such as numerous TBBT fans commenting on Galecki looking like JJ Abrams... which I don't really see), it is amazing that no one has mentioned Galecki's striking similarity to Billingsley (which is far more obvious). They have very similar mouth and dental features that give them the same facial and spoken mannerisms. The character Leonard can easily play Dr Phlox in a future TBBT episode when the nerds go to yet another Star Trek convention.
