LJ Benet has a celebrity lookalike... and he's on the Disney Channel just like he is! When TWIST recently caught up with the Dog with a Blog actor, we asked him if he has ever been mistaken for another star – and he says that he's always getting confused for Lab Rats actor Mateus Ward!
"Casting directors mix us up all the time," LJ shares. "We're suprised we don't have our own Disney Channel show, because look so much alike."
We definitely see the resemblance, but we can't believe how often they get mistaken for one another!
"We've gone in to casting right after one or the other, like Mateus goes in and then I come in and they'll turn around like, 'Mateus, we're done!' And I'm just like, 'I'm LJ, come on!' and the same thing has happened to him too," LJ shares. "Especially on Instagram, I get 'OMG, are you Mateus from Lab Rats?' and I'm like, 'No I'm LJ!' It's kind of like that SpongeBob thing, you know that 'No, it's Patrick!'"
So naturally we had to ask LJ if he has ever pretended to be Mateus, and it looks like he hasn't used the fact that they're lookalikes against anyone ... yet.
"No, but that would be so funny if I did," LJ dishes. "He actually wouldn't even get mad, he would think it was funny." We need to be the first to hear if that ever happens!
Do you think that LJ and Mateus are total doppelängers? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
