Have you ever watched an interview of an actor and can't help but notice how similar the actors are to their on-screen performances, whether it's TV or the big screen. I know I have! Here are some of the actors that done it for me. Write your ones in the comments!

Robert Downey Jr. - Tony Stark (Iron Man)

I may as well get the obvious out of the way first. This is one that nobody can deny.. Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark and there's just no denying that. Between the infectious charisma and brooding confidence, Jr. is the philanthropist that he portrays. That's not to say he's not a good actor because if you watch him in movies such as Kiss Kiss Bang Bang or The Judge you can see his great acting.

Chris Pratt - Andy Dwyer (Parks & Recreation)

Chris Pratt, Hollywood's hottest asset at the moment is the lovable, down-to-earth guy that is the right mix of silly and cool. That description would also fit his character in the hit NBC show, Parks and Recreation. The show that ended last year set the pavement for Pratt before he became energetic Emmett from Lego Movie, hilarious Star Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy and superb Owen from hit latest, Jurassic World. He is sure to soar to even more heights with being Indiana Jones any day now. He is bubbly, clumsy and an all round joker like his on-screen character Andy Dywer. Just not as dumb! (no offense Andy) Huge reactions, capturing a room and having no enemies. Stay classy' Chris.

Leonardo DiCaprio - Jordan Belford (Wolf of Wall Street)

Now I know DiCaprio isn't an insane, drug-fuelled con-man, but the similarities are there. For one he lives life to the absolute height of bachelor degrees. He is often spotted with huge groups of girls and partying with them til' crazy hours of the morning. Now I'm not saying he uses drugs in real life, but his dance moves at Coachella were questionable at the very least. I love the man and he really is as charismatic as Mr. Belford himself. I don't want to shine him in a bad light because on his other side he is insanely good! He works tirelessly to help the planet and donates to tons of charities. Long live king DiCaprio.

James Franco - Dave Skylark (The Interview)

Just like his on-screen counterpart, James Franco is a strange wonderful mix of spontaneous, hilarious and just down right unpredictable. He has been known to be quite controversial on social media, even his brother Dave Franco can't explain his actions. Franco shares similarities with most of his characters but Dave Skylark may be his closest one.

Channing Tatum - Jenko (21 Jump Street)

There's no denying that Tatum is one of the best actors around at the moment. He can change from being extremely funny to being a intense drama actor and then a captivating action star. In real life his has a great sense of humor like his on screen Jenko. He may not be near as dim as Jenko, but that doesn't take away the similarities between the two.
