These two actors may look alike on the surface but when it comes to the details of their lives, they couldn’t be more different. So lets start with their similarities: teeth, lips, noses, shape of their eyes and even their manly eyebrows if you squint a little, and… that’s about it.
Their differences? Where do I begin! They are from two different parts of the world, Crowe is 15 years older then McKenzie, Crowe has made at least 12 successful films, while McKenzie has been in a few known Television series.
Russell Crowe has dated a few very famous ladies and is now married. Ben McKenzie on the other hand has dated one of the hottest young actresses but that’s about it. Guess he just doesn’t have as much game as good ole Crowe. That’s ok, it probably comes with age.
As for right now, Russell just completed a movie called The Next Three Days with Elizabeth Banks, Lian Neeson and Olivia Wilde, while Benjamin is starring in an NBC police drama called Southland. The show actually was canceled after it’s first season, bought by TNT who ordered 7 new episodes and then picked up again for another 10 episodes which will air in January 2011.
