Hollywood is full of celebrity lookalikes and impersonators. From Angelina Jolie, Natalie Portman, Katy Perry to Gerald Butler, we have seen the doppelgangers of many. The latest to break the internet is Snoop Dogg’s lookalike after one of his pictures made it to Twitter and got social media users scratching their heads.

The hip-hop icon's lookalike is identified as Eric Finch and interestingly, even his Instagram user name says “snooplookalike”. Finch got Twitter users talking after a social media user posted a picture of his mother posing with Finch in Los Angeles saying, “I’ve been in LA for a year and haven’t seen a single celebrity. My mom comes for a weekend and meets Snoop Dogg.” While many were confused at first, they gradually realized that the person was not Snoop but his doppelganger. Speaking of lookalikes, the doppelgangers of A-listers such as Jennifer Aniston, Harry Styles, Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lopez recently broke the internet with their viral pictures.

Who is Eric Finch?

Snoop’s lookalike Finch might be a little old as compared to the rap icon but his looks surely make other people stop and notice the uncanny resemblance. Finch has close to 26,000 followers on his Instagram account and his bio tells us he is an actor. It reads, “SAG-AFTRA Actor/Perfomer|Snoop Dogg Body Double|Professional Lookalike|Sound Alike|Tribute Artist| #snooplookalike_official.” Looking at the bio, it seems impersonating Snoop is a full-time job for Finch.

According to the website Culture Trip, Finch grew up in Louisiana and served close to 20 years in the US Navy, out of which 14 years he was at Camp Pendleton located near San Diego. His parents also served in the United States Marine Corps. He currently resides in the Inland Empire of California. In 2019, Finch used to work at a warehouse. And interestingly, he is also friends with lookalikes of Mariah Carey, Vin Diesel and Ed Sheeran. Talking about being in the public eye, he earlier said, “People would just surround us sometimes. It can be very hard and demanding. You’re just like a celebrity, but you don’t get the pay.” He had earlier also expressed his desire to become an actor saying, “I’ll take whatever comes. It’s not about the fame and the fortune. It’s about something I enjoy doing. It’s breathtaking to me. There are no words that can even describe what it feels like to be an entertainer.”


If a report published by Caters News is to be believed, Finch has even managed to make money, all thanks to his exceptional impersonation skills. He apparently once raked in $2,000 for a 15-minute booking. Speaking on being a lookalike, he had said, “I never imagined my life would be like this, I get a chance to know what celebrity life is like.”
