The resemblance between young James Marsters (Buffy’s Spike) and Ryan Reynolds is uncanny. Could these two have been separated at birth?

James Wesley Marsters is an American actor who fooled the world with his perfect British accent as Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He is also a talented musician and voice actor.

A Salyer slays, a Reader…

An old picture of the Marsters in his hey-day resurfaced on the internet (thanks to u/YipYipsUhhuh) . The picture is from his high-school yearbook (imagine lil’ spike, omg) with the caption “life is realising your inner perfection.” Pretty deep for a teenager, right?

What’s so awesome about his yearbook picture is his curly hair and an all-so familiar smirk. He reminded me of someone else.

He reminded me of someone else. Someone famous. Their name was at the tip of my tongue. For a second I thought, Benedict Cumberbatch? But I was just being mislead by James Masters’ curls… but then it hit me!

James Marsters looks almost exactly like a young Ryan Reynolds in this picture. Don’t believe me? Take a look at these photos!

Maybe James Marsters is Reynolds long lost older brother, or maybe even his secret father… I know there is just a 14-year age difference but the 70s was a really weird time period. Regardless, the resemblance between the two actors in their teens is uncanny and undeniable.

But maybe you disagree and think young Spike looks a completely different actor. Who do you think little James Marsters looks like? Let us know in the comments below.
