Most actors aren't cool with diving off tall buildings or dodging bullets on a motorcycle — even if it’s all technically fake. Stars make the big bucks, of course, but even those fat paychecks don’t include that kind of hazard pay. Thankfully, stunt doubles have the skills — and daring — to do the job, so the actors don't risk getting hurt.

Stunt doubles are visible to some extent in scenes, so producers do their best to find doubles who look like the actors they impersonate. Sometimes, they look so much like the actors, even the director can get confused. Take a look at some celebrity/stunt double pairs that would make you think you were seeing double if you saw them together off set.
