Stephen Amell Mistaken For A Former DC Movie Actor Stephen Amell Mistaken For A Former DC Movie Actor
A bartender recently mistook Stephen Amell for Chris O'Donnell. Stephen Amell Mistaken For A Former DC Movie Actor

This weekend, Stephen Amell (Arrow‘s Oliver Queen) had an amusing interaction with a bartender where he was mistaken for another actor – Chris O’Donnell of NCIS: Los Angeles fame. Or, as Stephen would tell it:

“Also… I worked with @chrisodonnell on NCIS: LA. He couldn’t have been a nicer guy,” Amell added afterward.

What makes the resemblance even funnier is that Chris O’Donnell also famously played a DC Comics icon in two movies of the 1990’s, as he was Robin in Batman Forever and Batman and Robin. And he was forced to have nipples on his costume for reasons that are still unknown. Aside from Burt Ward, O’Donnell has been the only live-action Robin in the last few decades unless we count Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character from The Dark Knight Rises. That will change, of course, with Brenton Thwaites and Titans later this year!

So no, Mr. Bartender, you didn’t meet Robin… but you did indeed meet the Hood. Though we guess this person thought that Chris O’Donnell was the star of Arrow, so maybe it’s the Hood they expected all along! Regardless, it’s a funny mix-up.
