Doug Jones x 2!! Fish-man Actor in Movies vs Democrat challenger to Roy Moore in AL!! Argh.

Anyone else notice this?

Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water is coming out, and there are all these PR pieces discussing the daring fantasy of the movie and the romance between the mute human woman and the fish-man - played by Doug Jones, who has also played Abe Sapien in the del Toro Hellboy movies. The dude knows fish, okay?

But - I am now realizing Doug Jones is the name of the Dem challenger to Alabama Cowboy Perv Roy Moore.

What a burden.

No, Doug Jones is the mustachioed closer for the Cleveland Indians in the 1980s!

At least the politician Doug Jones isn't insane.

Steven King has no such luck with his name-alike.

This is referred to as a "Googleganger". Another person who comes up when your name, or any name is Googled. Not to be confused with Doppelbanger, a person who looks almost exactly like someone you had sex with once.

Ah - there ya go. Reminds me of the one time I googled my name and saw that one guy is a competitive eater. Sigh.

Q. What's the difference between Roy Moore and Doug Jones?
A. One appears publicly as a slimy monster, and the other is in a movie.
