What does it feel like to constantly be confused by actors who look almost identical to one another? However, it is unfortunate that as a result of Mark Christopher Lawrence’s and Reginald VelJohnson’s actions, this is precisely what took place as a result.
The resemblance between these two is so striking that it is hard not to wonder if they are related to each other somehow. I guess we will find out soon enough.
