Okay, we’re a bit
doppelganger-crazy at Abrams Media. But it’s too much fun! It’s like… a glimpse into what these chefs could have been, if they were less food-obsessed and more into the theater club in high school (or basketball, or whatever.)
There's no cross domain hackery or tracking voodoo, it's just some sweet jQuery animations.
Please, think of the animations.
In the meantime, enjoy the html version below. I guess. If that's your thing.
Alton Brown = David Hyde Pierce
They could probably share the same suit and bow tie collection, too.
Anne Burrell = Edie Falco
Again, it's the hair. This is one of the downsides of having instantly-recognizable hair, folks--you're always going to look like That Other Person Who Styles Their Hair That Way.
Mario Batali = Comic Book Guy
It's obvious. It's been done before. But why touch something that's so perfect?
Scott Conant = Brett Ratner
Because sometimes Scott Conant wants to pull a Wolverine on everyone who goes on Chopped.
Cat Cora = Elizabeth Banks
I KNEW Cat Cora was a bit Effie Trinketish during the Miss USA Pageant last week!
Fabio Viviani = Johnny Depp
Do you know how
difficult is is to find a picture of Johnny Depp smiling? Do you know how much harder it is to find a picture of Fabio Viviani not smiling?!
Guy Fieri = Joey Fatone
...maybe Guy Fieri is secretly Joey Fatone with his hair bleached. What
has Joey Fatone been doing since N*SYNC broke up, anyways?
Jean-Christophe Novelli = Griffin Dunne
Our esteemed boss Dan Abrams came up with this one, and he's right...but we have no idea who Griffin Dunne is. [
Ed Note: ] Easy with the Royal We there.
Eddie Huang = Kim Jong Il
We think that the odd dictator shares, at the very most, the same eye-fashion sense as the creator of Chairman Baos.
Marcus Samuelsson = Kobe Bryant
Because comparisons to Barack Obama are so passe.
Giada De Laurentiis = Natalie Portman
But which one is the darker, sensual Black Swan?
