Separated at Birth: Irish full back Jason McAteer and Bond villain Maximilian Largo
Pope and Swift, at times, can be quite lazy. We’re loathe to admit it but we like it when others do our job for us. You can imagine how pleased we were, then, when handed this excellent Separated at Birth on a plate by Alex Webb, a friend of ours (and, dare we say, a reader).
He got in touch to suggest Eire’s finest English-born player Jason McAteer (not an official award, you’ll understand, though there are a few candidates) looks remarkably like bond villain Maximilian Largo, played by Klaus Maria Brandauer in Never Say Never Again. And we have to admit we stood and applauded at the combination of James Bond and Premier League full back knowledge.
Brownie points for Alex for doing our work for us. If you have any lookalikes that mean we don’t have to lift a lazy finger, drop us an email or tweet.
