Sabrina Reboot Casts Harvey Kinkle and He Looks… Exactly Like Sabrina?

So we’re all excited for The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Netflix’s ‘dark’ reboot of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, which is set to star Mad Men‘s Kiernan Shipka in the titular role.  They’ve been steadily beefing up their cast over the past few months, with actors chosen for the roles of The Office’s Lucy Davis as Aunt Hilda, Lord of the Ring’s Miranda Otto as Aunt Zelda, Salem (he’s a real cat as opposed to a strange puppet thing) and now Harvey. But there’s something funny about Ross Lynch, and not because the only thing anyone in the office can remember him from is Austin and Ally.

Now that I’ve seen it, I can’t unsee it: HE LOOKS LIKE KIERNAN SHIPKA. Observe:

So they’re not, like, identical, but they are very, very similar. If someone told me, hey, they’re brother and sister, my response would be decidedly un-surprised. But they’re not siblings. They are two unrelated actors who will play love interests. I know there is a strange phenomenon whereby sometimes couple grow to look alike when they’ve been together a long time, but l somehow doubt the producers are preempting this.

 

Anyway, there’s your new Harvey Kinkle. I have to say, my loyalties (by which I mean my whole heart and all the love I have to give) lie with the original, Nate Richards. LOOK AT HIM.
