It actually doesn't happen often, I think because there just aren't that many Asian males in the public eye for me to be compared to.
  1. For reference this is me.

    From 2009. Yes it's 5 years old but still fairly accurate. Though I can't wear that sweater vest anymore because it just reminds me of that photo that I'm sick of. I really need to get new headshots done. All that said, it's more recent and accurate than most online dating photos (you know what I'm talking about).
  2. Keanu Reeves

    There was a brief moment (pre-Matrix) where Keanu & I had similar haircuts. My friend Rita (who is obsessed with Keanu) swore we were twins. I never saw it really, but I'll take it.
  3. San Francisco Gaysians circa 1998

    Right before I moved here to San Francisco, my crazy friend Lowell swore that there were teams of gay Asians in SF that looked just like me. I came here and never found one that did. Lowell has since moved to Hawaii. I have since learned to hate the word "gaysian".
  4. A Banana Republic model

    This was about 15 years ago but there was a really popular BR model that was everywhere (I don't think this is him, but he kind of looked like this). All my friends thought I had a secret BR modeling career. When I went into BR shops the salespeople would even do a double take. I just chalk it up to the fact that I wore a lot of grey and black and navy blue at that time of my life.
  5. James Hormel's significant other Michael Nguyen.

    James Hormel, heir to the canned meat company Hormel and former ambassador to Luxembourg had a partner that a coworker of mine SWORE looked just like me. She had hatched an elaborate plan for me where I would meet James and seduce him away from his partner, thereby ensuring me a lifetime of luxury and class. The plan was rife with hilarious hijincks, perfect for a sitcom. I later found out that she herself had once starred in a sitcom pilot that was never picked up.
