Match two faces and win a prize!

Now the Diary loves its lookalikes, as all regular readers know. And while this one is, possibly, not 100 per cent credible, that’s no reason not to run it past you. Let’s face it, it can’t be any worse than Communication Team’s dismal forays in these pages (MW ad nauseam).

Anyway, here goes. John Hardie – managing director of branded television in Europe, Africa and the Middle East for Walt Disney Television International (phew) – looks somewhat like loveable Jurassic Park star Sam Neill.

OK, so this one may not be up there with some of the Diary’s classics, but there are some uncanny parallels between the men’s lives. Hardie, for instance, works for a television company; Neill owns a television, probably. And Neill likes Mickey Mouse cartoons. Er… start the car. (PS. There’s no prize really).
