Josh Hartnett (below, center) is apparently ready to audition for The Ninth Gate, a mystery involving a rare book dealer's investigation into the occult and directed Roman Polanski.

Unfortunately, that movie came out in 1999 and starred Johnny Depp (left, right). But who can blame Hartnett for wanting to resemble this talented and eccentric star. From smaller, dynamic roles in films such as the one discussed above to blockbusters like Pirates of the Caribbean, Depp never makes a bad career move.

Ah, yes, how we love Celebrity Look-Alikes. Most recently, we brought you a couple of dead-ringers, along with two attractive young women who, in actuality, have next to nothing common except for one feature (at least it's a hot one).
