These genes are tight

I really wonder what casting people are thinking sometimes when they cast younger versions of their stars. On Gossip Girl, they decided to cast Brittany Snow as the teenage Lily van der Woodsen. That's great and Brittany was great, however, unless Lily now wears colored contacts, they missed a rather vital part of Kelly Rutherford's face. She has brown (or hazel) eyes and Brittany's eyes are unmistakeably blue.

Meanwhile, over on Lost, the casting agents went back in time and found the actual kid forms of Evangeline Lilly, Michael Emerson, and Josh Holloway. It's striking.

On a related note, casting agents of 90210, thank you for casting a girl that could soooo be the child of Rob Estes and Lori Loughlin.
