Which teen actor does this look like?
July 20, 2011 8:25 PM   Subscribe

Which 80s or 90s teen-oriented TV show character does this guy look eerily like? I remember the character as being a bit of a schemer and he was either the lead or a major character. [http://oi54.tinypic.com/25tzv3b.jpg]

It's really just the hair that makes him Zach, sadly he's missing the giant cell phone!

The love child of Parker Lewis and Ed Grimley.

I'm going to go with Ryan Gosling on Breaker High and/or Young Hercules.

If you go a bit older, I thought it looked like Eddie Haskell from Leave it to Beaver.

To me, he resembles Charlie Schlatter from Ferris Bueller - the TV show.

Tom Felton's younger brother?

I think he looks like Rhys Ifans. So, not a teen star, but an actor nonetheless.

Dobie Gillis was the first one that came to my mind.

Seconding Zack Morris most commonly known from Saved By the Bell.

It's the villain from the cartoon DOUG.

He looks like Vincent "Bionic Boy" Van Patten and Jim Nabors' love child.

Yep, 100% Ryan Gosling on Breaker High -- confirmed by the fact that you're Canadian. :-)

Thanks everyone — so now the only question is how did a teenaged Ryan Gosling get a cameo in Triumph of the Will?
