All in the family

Sonja Kohn, at right, has just been slapped with a lawsuit by Irving Picard, the trustee for the Madoff victims, for having knowingly participated in Bernie Madoff's fraud. 

I can't be the only person struck by the resemblance. She looks as if she could be Bernie's younger sister. Or even Bernie himself dressed up in (not very convincing) drag.

Here's another relative. :)

Guy -- Ha! I suspect this one is a little better at poking fun of herself.

Have you seen the cover of the latest Esquire magazine? Robert DeNiro could play Madoff in the movie, with little to no make-up! Julie

Julie --
You're right, he is starting to look more Madoff-like. On the other hand, I doubt Madoff when young would have looked as right for the part of the young Vito Corleone in Godfather II.

I was stunned by the resemblance when I saw the photos. Maybe they were drawn to each other in the manner of look-alikes Mick and Bianca Jagger?
