Blagojevich Look-a-Like Haunts Dirksen



    Attorney/actor Jerry Kroll said he freaked out when he realized how much he resembled Illinois' former governor. (Published Monday, Aug. 9, 2010)

    As if one weren't enough.

    A Rod Blagojevich lookalike made the rounds today at the Dirksen Federal Court building, where reporters and camera crews sat waiting -- for the ninth day -- for a verdict from the jury.

    The doppelganger -- actually attorney-cum-actor Jerry Kroll -- was dressed in a dark blue suit and his hair was, not unlike Rod's, brown and, well ... buoyant?

    Kroll, who could also be mistaken for a more cheery David Duchovny (see for yourself here), has appeared in such hit films and TV shows as "Assassin in Blue" and the Lifetime Movie Network's "Second to Die."
