Sewell should dream on I mean seriously! Look at Joaquin he is the ultimate a man can be fat and thin and Sewell could never ever compare to that!! Seriously its a major insult to Joaquin at any rate!

I think they actually look alot alike, same color eyes, same nose and besides the fact that Joaquin has a scar cut above his lip and a slightly different face structure not much is different. The question is why they look so alike having been born in almost completely different countries (Puerto Rico vs. England) and that they are 7 years different in age. Its just a wonder ?

They don't look the same at all. Rufus isn't ugly, but, yes, Joaquin is special.
The colour of the eyes is definitely not the same, shame on you. Should look closer before stating such things. ;)The face structure is very different too.

Rufus Sewell is a very talented actor and extremely handsome. I don't think they look alike.
I don't compare them, never even thought of it.
In my opinion Rufus is far more handsome than any man in theatre or film right now. Plus he has genuine talent!

You've never heard of Rufus Sewell? You ought to consider viewing the film "Dangeroius Beauty"
he plays the lead romantic actor in a very interesting film. I love the film, very romantic and empoweringm a real woman's film. Plus it's based in fact. He is so gorgeous in that film.

I don't see the resemblance either. I think Sewell is better looking, more talented, and more versatile. He deserves to be known for his own work, and I can understand why anyone would be annoyed at being taken for someone else.

Rufus Sewell was also Count Adhemar in A Knight's Tale and before that he was John Murdoch in Dark City alongside Jennifer Connelly. There is a slight resemblance; both are good-looking, talented actors, though I will admit a preference for Joaquin Phoenix.

If you don't see the resemblance now, check out the BBC miniseries, George Eliot's "Middlemarch" in which a much younger Rufus Sewell plays romantic lead Will Ladislaw. Except for the repaired cleft palate, he was a dead ringer for Joaquin Phoenix, but even better looking. I found this webcite after watching the miniseries, because I thought the two actors might be related.

Unbelievable. Rufus doesn't look like Joaquin. Rufus is a handsome man, I saw them in person and I think they have something in common: they're both snobe, but Rufus is much better fisically.

Joquin or Rufus give off that same sizziling magnetic energy and when i see Rufus,,i think of Joquin..they are both equally hot to me and it would be interesting to know them both in private life.

Yes,they have the same coloring,and sometimes the same expressions. No, you can not confuse them. Rufus does not look like Jaoquin, and would be hard to confuse them. I think that Jaoquin is much more recognizable than Rufus, and when Rufus is out in public, the link goes to Jaoquin automatically. Nothing more than that. Mistaken i.d.
