Oscars 2016: Matt Damon lookalike is accountant Brian Cullinan
Matt Damon has a doppelganger, and it’s one of the two people who already know this year’s Oscar winners.
ABC’s live red carpet coverage from the Oscars put a spotlight on Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz, the two PricewaterhouseCoopers partners who counted the Oscar ballots and carried in the briefcases. As happens often, it’s the little things that get noticed, and Cullinan is blowing up for his likeness to The Martian actor.
As Cullinan told Michael Strahan, this isn’t the first time someone brought it up.
Cullinan tweeted photos from the red carpet with the sacred briefcase. “My old friend Matt,” he wrote next to a photo of him posing next to his famous lookalike.
