With a face like that, you belong in comics


It came to my attention today that recent Tony Stark depictions have been inspired by Josh Holloway and specifically his character on Lost.   
 
So I decided to make a photo collection of real life celebrities (or at least realtively well know people) and the characters they have inspired, or have been used as the basis for.   
 
Josh Holloway / Tony Stark 
 
 
 

Joanne Siegel / Lois Lane 
 
 
 
  

Judy Garland / Mary Marvel  
 
 
 
 
 
The last one I think is the one which has departed the most from the original.  Any others out there that I am missing?  Post photos of them in the comments section if you like (sorry if this has been done before, I have never seen something like it)

Osborne in Dark Avengers looks like Tommy Lee Jones.

Norman Osborn has gotten to be 'played' by both Tommy Lee Jones (Deodato), and... Spain's Prime Minster?   
 
Ultimate Nick Fury, Big Barda, Hogun the Grimm, and Fandral the Dashing all took visual cues from real life people. 
 
Oh and this is a good comparison piece.

Of course, there's Adam Hughes's Audrey Hepburn-esque Catwoman:

And there are times when I swear Guillem March is channeling Greta Garbo when he draws Poison Ivy:

  Admiral Kizaru from One Piece is based off from a Japanese actor.

Certain artists are going to come up a lot asking this question. 
 
Of course, the entire cast of Wanted should be mentioned.

And rightfully so I might add! It's only obscure to you but not to us! ;)

Interesting topic! Some people do appear to be inspired.
