American actor Logan Marshall-Green is one of Hollywood rising stars and is soon to become even bigger with a starring role in new blockbuster Prometheus.
But as he stepped onto the red carpet at the London premire of his new film, many onlookers could have been forgiven for thinking he was British actor Tom Hardy.
To make matters even more confusing, Inception star Tom was also on the red carpet and the after-party.

Many film fans on the internet have commented on the staggering facial similarities between the handsome actors, who were born only 14 months apart.
However, Tom, 34, is more differential than usual due to his bushy beard, which he is currently growing for a forthcoming role in Mad Max.
While former The O.C. star Logan, 35, looked dapper in a light grey Balenciaga suit, Tom was dressed down in a white shirt and jeans.
In a recent interview, Logan
acknowledged the similarities between the pair, but pointed out he
actually has a twin-brother called Taylor.

He told Elle.com: 'I’d be honoured to be in the same sentence as Tom Hardy. I’ve
been a twin since the day I was born – fraternal, but we look a lot
alike – so I’ve already been mixed up with another man my entire life.'
London native Tom was at the premire to support his friends – Prometheus stars Michael Fassbender and Guy Pearce (his recent co-star in Lawless) and the movie's director Ridley Scott.
The actor's friendship with Scott stems back to Black Hawk Down in 2001, in which the then-24-year-old Tom made his film debut.
A former model, Tom has become one of the most in-demand British actors in recent years with roles in Inception, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and the upcoming Batman film The Dark Knight Rises.
