• Double Identity: The Counterfeit Lives of Hollywood Lookalikes

    In a world blinded by beauty and fame, our obsession with celebrity takes some bizarre twists. A close resemblance to an actor, singer or political leader can become a backstage pass to a dizzying – and sometimes dangerous – half-life.

    This documentary goes inside the world of the celebrity double – counterfeit super-stars, high on second hand fame. It’s the ultimate identity crisis where it’s easy to forget where make-believe ends, and real life begins.  We see how these lookalikes often fool the public – and themselves. The documentary features dead ringers for Michael Jackson, Robert de Niro, Shania Twain, Ozzy Osbourne and the notorious Uday Hussein.
