Omar Epps and Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers

Dear Diary,

     I watched the Super Bowl tonight, as did many Americans, and was shocked to learn that Omar Epps (of House fame) also doubles as the coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers.


Basically the same man twice.

Basically the same man twice.

I’m no football buff, and I only watch House SOMEtimes. But come on. I think anyone in their right mind can see, we have another doppleganger situation on our hands. We all remember Nick Nolte and Gary Busey.

    Thought you’d like to know that I just saw a sneak peak of the next House and House makes a reference to Mike Tomlin. You can see it on I’m not a football buff, but also searched the internet to see the resemblance.

    Well, if you didn’t watched House this week, there is a point when House insinuates that Foreman has another job in football.

    I’ve noticed this resemblance for some time. Have always been an Omar Epps fan but not a football fan. I’m now a regular Steelers watcher and fan. Wonder why? Lol.
