Jon Stewart began his career as a standup comedian which later led him to being in front of the camera and made cameos in movies like Big Daddy, The Faculty, Rose Water, the cult classic Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Playing By Heart, and a personal favorite Half Baked. In 1999, Jon Stewart got the hosting gig for the satirical news show, The Daily Show, and became a household name for his thoughts on the socio-economic climate. In 2015, Stewart stepped down from the hosting position and has been enjoying the fruits of his labor ever since.What many might not know is that Stewart has a rather doppelganger of his own in the form of American Congregationalist clergyman, Henry Ward Beecher. A man known for his support of the abolition of slavery. Not only was Beecher a well-known activist, he used his sources to buy and free slaves as well as purchase arms for the Union during the Civil War. Not to mention, he was also quite the ladies man as he went to trial for adultery in 1875 which resulted in a hung jury. Both Stewart and Beecher have had a positive impact on society.ADVERTISEMENTWith so many choices, how do you know what kind of mortgage is right for you?What you should know about the different home loan options.
Alicia Keys has one of the most mesmerizing voices of this generation and she has the platinum plaques and record sales to prove it. Alicia Keys was raised by her mother in New York and grew up without the presence of her father. By the age of 12-years-old, Keys was writing and composing her own music and now she sits on top of six solo studio albums, fifteen Grammys, seventeen NAACP Awards, nine Billboard Awards, and seven BET Awards. Not to mention, Ms. Keys is doing a lot of philanthropic work as the co-founder of the HIV/AIDS non-profit organization entitled, Keep a Child Alive.It just so happens that Alicia Keys looks a lot like another singer by the name of Lena Horne who not only was an artist in the entertainment industry but fought for causes herself and was a participating civil rights activist. Despite having so much success, Horne found herself blackballed from the industry due to her political activism but will forever be remembered for both her artistry, beauty, and activism a la Alicia Keys.
Michael Douglas might be 73 years of age but that isn’t stopping him from being cast into some of today’s most popular films. It’s nearly impossible to remain relevant in any industry for five decades but yet, Douglas has achieved to do so in the cut-throat entertainment industry. Michael Douglas got his big break on the popularized television series The Streets of San Francisco which has propelled his career and landed him roles in films like The War of the Roses, The American President, The Game, Fatal Attraction, Basic Instinct, Falling Down, Last Vegas, and most recently Marvel’s Ant-Man series.Unfortunately, Michael Douglas has a rather interesting doppelganger that he looks more and more like as he ages in the first president of the United States of America, George Washington. One of the nation’s Founding Fathers, the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War and the man who never told a lie, which is a total lie by the way, does favor Michael Douglas so any movie studios out there want to write us a casting check for the next Washington movie, don’t be shy.
