2020 Celebrity Lookalikes: Doug Perkins


HOMETOWN: Spanish Fork

UV: When did people start saying you resemble Alan Alda?

It started when I was in college in the 1980s. People said I looked just like the guy from M*A*S*H*. It has continued to happen here and there over the years.

UV: Do you share any similarities with your celebrity twin in addition to your appearance?

Well, I don’t play a doctor on TV, but I am one in real life! In the show, “Hawkeye” is a surgeon and I am also in the medical field. I was in the ER for most of my career, but now I am in family medicine and I do a lot of work with veterans. One of the nurses I work with loves M*A*S*H* and always tells me I have the same mannerisms as him.

UV: If you could live your lookalike’s life for a day, what would you do?

I would love to go back in time and spend a day on the set of M*A*S*H*.
