The more I see Paul Ryan’s face splashed on TVs, newspapers, and blogs, the more I can’t help but focus on his most obvious attribute: His uncanny resemblance to Nathan Scott (James Lafferty), of course! Yes, Nathan Scott of One Tree Hill. It’s not just about their dark brown hair (and hairline), nearly identical skin coloring, strong cheekbones, or slightly dimpled chin; it’s in the expressions, too. Go ahead, take a closer look.
Exhibit A: The “Furrowed Brow” Face
Exhibit B: The “Please Won’t Someone Pity-Me” Face
Exhibit C: The “Can’t You Tell I’m Thinking Really Hard” Face
Exhibit D: The “Go-To Crowd Pleaser” Face
Need more uncanny resemblances? Ryan was the king of his former schools, where he played basketball(!!) at St. Mary’s Catholic School. Of course, Scott was Tree Hill’s basketball all-star. Ryan was named Prom King at Joseph A. Craig High School and yep, you guessed it, Scott was also given the title his Senior year. As you can see, they’re pretty much one in the same.
