  • Kimmre Mike Burden

    Separated at birth: Joe Thomas and Mike Burden


    Looks like fresh-faced Inbetweeners star Joe Thomas has put the yellow Fiat Cinquecento and adolescent escapades with Will, Jay and Neil behind him to land a grown-up job in property, as a partner at Kimmre… Ah no, that’ll be his boyish lookalike Mike Burden.

    Separated at birth: Edward Furlong and Morten Møller Holst


    Metropolis had to do a double-take when it saw a young Edward Furlong, US actor and musician, on Property Week’s People Moves page, but it was actually BrickVest’s recently appointed chief operating officer Morten Møller Holst.

  • Mark Bott Colliers

    Separated at birth: Andre Agassi and Mark Bott


    As Wimbledon gets under way, Metropolis expected former champion Andre Agassi to pop up on the sports pages, not on Property Week’s People Moves page. Turns out he just shares a strong likeness with new Colliers head of serviced offices Mark Bott.

  • Tim Cooney Colliers

    Separated at birth: Tom Cruise and Tim Cooney


    Metropolis thought it would be Mission: Impossible to find someone who looked like Hollywood heart-throb Tom Cruise. However, we reckon Tim Cooney, a recently appointed associate director at Colliers International, is the spitting image.

    Metropolis couldn’t help but notice long-distance runner Paula Radcliffe in this week’s professional section commenting on a fraud case. It turns out it was actually her doppelgänger Rosalind Cullis, senior associate at Kingsley Napley.

  • Stephen Merchant_shutterstock_71886484_cred Photo Works

    Separated at birth: Ben Marston and Stephen Merchant


    Ben Marston, director at architecture firm Jestico + Whiles, may not have written or directed a hit show like The Office, but Metropolis is sure he is used to spending a great deal of time in an office… perhaps just not on Slough Trading Estate. What do you think?
