Eion Bailey is the leading man in Hallmark Movies and Mysteries’ new Christmas movie, Deliver by Christmas. But if you’re watching the movie and thought Paul Rudd was in it at first, you’re not alone. Many fans think Bailey and Rudd look just alike.

No one could blame you if you mistook Bailey for Rudd. Bailey looks a lot like Rudd, except his nose is shaped quite differently. Bailey was born in June 1976 in California and Paul Rudd was born in April 1969 in New Jersey. So they’re only five years apart in age, which doesn’t help matters when you’re trying to tell them apart. According to IMDb, Rudd is 5’10” while Bailey is just a little taller than 5’10”, so their heights won’t help you tell them apart much either.

TV Tropes mentioned that Bailey has said he gets confused with Rudd or Jason Patric. He and Rudd especially resemble each other in photos. Seeing them on TV and movies, it’s much easier to tell them apart based on their mannerisms and voices. Some people do think they’d be great playing the role of brothers, though.

If you think they look alike, you’re not alone. Seven years ago on Yahoo Answers, one person jokingly asked if they were the same person after seeing Bailey on Band of Brothers.

Others have said that Bailey would make a great Ant-Man in the multiverse.

Bailey Was Recently on ‘Emily in Paris’ & Also Did a Screen Test for Batman

Bailey recently starred in Emily in Paris, and this video he shared on Instagram really makes him look a lot like Paul Rudd.


He really resembles Rudd in quite a few of his Instagram shares.


Bailey also did a screen test for The Dark Knight as Batman, which you can see at the end of the video below. The role ultimately went to Christian Bale.

Bailey has also appeared in Hallmark movies before. In 2017 he was in a Hallmark favorite, Switched for Christmas with Candace Cameron Bure. In that movie, Cameron Bure played identical twin sisters who follow in love with the “other” in each other’s lives. Mark Deklin played the other love interest in the movie.

Switched for Christmas was really quite good. It was filmed in Utah, including in Payson, Draper, and Salt Lake City, including the Salt Lake Fairgrounds.

Next week, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will be airing Cranberry Christmas on Halloween (Nikki DeLoach and Benjamin Ayres) and Holly & Ivy on November 1 (Janel Parrish, Jeremy Jordan, and Marisol Nichols). On November 7, you’ll get to see The Christmas Ring (Nazneen Contractor and David Alpay) and then The Christmas Bow on November 8 (Lucia Micarelli and Michael Rady.)
