Double Vision: Julianna Margulies and Famke Janssen

Good-Wife-Famke-Janssen_lI’d assumed it was only the early-morning, refusing-to-wear-glasses-yet version of myself who momentarily got super psyched to “see” that Famke Janssen has a new show on CBS this fall. But no! My colleagues Michael Slezak and Missy Schwartz just admitted to experiencing similar double takes of the poster for ‘The Good Wife’ that’s popped up all over the city lately, while wearing their glasses. And now I am wearing my glasses and it sure wasn’t just a dream! Aw, we’d love it if Famke could be a series regular in the September-premiering courtroom drama — CBS should consider an out-of-nowhere Single White Female plot line should ratings suffer right away.

What you want to get out of this post is that Julianna Margulies and Famke Janssen look alike, and that everyone who works at EW is a four-eyed delusional weirdo, two “trends” which have been evident for quite some time. It’s summer; you shouldn’t have to work for it, you know?

    I thought the same thing the first time i saw that poster.

    You are not the only ones! I had my morning coffee, glasses and when i was walking by the subway entrance in Chambers St. I thought Famka had a tv show too!!!

  • greg

    Both HOT

  • Mike M.

    Ha! I thought the same thing and got super excited, only to wikipedia the show on my phone a block later to see it was Julianna.

    Famke is gorgeous and a great actress – loved her in X-Men, though she didn’t have much to do, she the HBIC as Phoenix.

  • Jess

    I totally thought that as well! I’m glad I’m not the only one.

  • Ben

    I also concur!

  • creejay

    yeah I agree…I’ve seen a lot of people say the same. Julianna seems to get better looking as starts looking more like Famke!

  • Chaddogg

    For a long time (and I should note, awhile ago), I thought Joey Lauren Adams and Renee Zellweger were the same person.

  • msty

    Who is “FAMKE”?

  • Naaaah

    Janssen looks like a pre-op tranny. Margulies looks like an actual chick. So they both have dark shoulder length hair – so what? The bone structure, not to mention height, hair color and skin tone, are completely different.

    I just did this exact double take this morning!!! I saw a bus ad and was like “wait, Famke is in this movie; could have sworn I saw a TV preview with Julianna…”

    Julianna Margulies clearly has had significant work done. She used to look way more ethnic. I prefer the old version, but she does look good now. I suppose looking more generically beautiful would give an actress more options.
    And to whoever said that Famke looks like a pre-op Tranny, you need to get your eyes checked. She’s one of the most agreed upon beautiful women in the world. Look at her IMDB profile for her countless magazine covers and pictorials. You’re insane.

    Julianna had a Famke make-over!

  • smiley

    I thought they were the same person!!! Hence, the searching online to know who it is.
