They're literally identical.

If you've already sat down to watch Alex Strangelove on Netflix, then you're probably still gagging over the Panic! At The Disco joke or wondering what the hell that polyamory comment was about. Well, now people have pointed out that the lead actor looks SO similar to one of our favourites actors and, honestly, once you've seen it, you can't unsee it.

Netflix's new LGBTQ teen film follows Alex, played by Daniel Doheny, who's on a mission to lose his virginity to his girlfriend Claire, played by Madeline Weinstein. There's just one small problem: Alex is gay.

Before Alex Strangelove, Daniel wasn't very well known, having only a handful of acting credits to his name, including a small part in one episode of Supernatural. Now he's getting a lot more exposure, and people are starting to realise he looks incredibly similar to Andrew Garfield.

The verdict is unanimous: Daniel Doheny is Andrew Garfield.

Someone give the casting director a pay rise.
