The Men Who Would Be Mao- Time Magazine

Zheng Jiang, 56 (Tommaso Bonaventura / Contrasto / Redux)

The Great Helmsman, Sort Of
Zheng Jiang, 56, discovered his resemblance to Communist China founder Mao Zedong in 2005 while he was visiting Yan’an, where an early base used by the Chinese communists is now a popular tourist attraction. On that occasion, other tourists crowded around him, clamoring to have photos taken with “the President.” He now appears in soap operas and patriotic movies.

I know some folks would get a kick out of this. Do you know any Mao (or other communist leaders) look-a-likes? They may have a career waiting for them!
