Practically Related! Actors That Should Play Fictional Siblings

by Black America Web

Some of the best things in life often come in pairs — shoes; socks; cufflinks; earrings; Rumi & Sir Carter. The same can also be said about Hollywood movies and television shows with leading co-stars casted as siblings due to their striking resemblance.


We saw it work effortlessly in HBO’s hit series Euphoria with the “sisterly” bond between Storm Reid and two-time Emmy winner Zendaya. There’s also Jackée Harry & Kym Whitley as estranged sisters in the season 2 Christmas episode of Young & Hungry — loooong time coming!the surprising synergy between Wesley Snipes and Kevin Hart as crime-ridden brothers in the 2021 Netflix series True Story and most recently with Quinta Brunson and rising actress Ayo Edebiri in the current season of Abbott Elementary on ABC (seen above).

The trend has been such a success, that many have already began fancasting other doppelgänger thespians for dream projects currently existing solely in our imaginations. Shadow And Act even had a good suggestion of their own. Take a look below:

Of course, we couldn’t let them have all the fun! There are too many actors and actresses out here that are shoe-ins to play siblings in a future project, be it film or on the small screen. It could be a comedy, a drama, crime-thriller — you name it! We just want to see our selection of dream sibling duos in lights, camera and action.

Keep scrolling for our picks of acting pairs that we could easily see playing siblings. Not all are award-winning drama majors, not are a good portion of them even great actors to begin with, but we simply can’t deny the resemblance. See if you agree:

These singing sirens have both transitioned into acting over the years, so hopefully they can work, work work up something on the big screen together.
