House Finally Acknowledges the Resemblance Between Foreman and Mike Tomlin

You're welcome, internet. Ever since he took the Pittsburgh Steelers head coaching job in 2007, Mike Tomlin has been known for two things: Winning football games, and looking like Omar Epps. Type "Mike Tomlin Omar Epps" into Google and you'll see it's a suggested search, which means their lookalike-ness is basically certified fact. Last night on House, the writers finally acknowledged the similarity, and the look on Foreman's face was priceless.

But many questions remain. Has anyone ever seen Epps and Tomlin in the same place at the same time? Is Mike Tomlin moonlighting as an actor on an Emmy-winning megahit or was Omar Epps' appearance in The Program more of a documentary kind of thing? Conspiracy! (Clip via KSK)

If the coach's hand was away from his chin, I might be able to judge better, but I do not think they look all that much alike. But that is my opinion

There is not, however, any resemblance between Eric Foreman and Eric Forman.

No, they have the same face shape and the same eyes. Yes, the skin tone is different and of course the hair, but there is a similarity.

they look nothing alike, the only similarity is that they are both black, and their not even the same shade of black.
