Edward Kirk Herrmann "Looks Like" Rudy Vallee.

Rudy Vallee (July 28, 1901 – July 3, 1986) was an American singer, actor, bandleader, and entertainer.

Edward Kirk Herrmann (born July 21, 1943), is a television and film actor. He is best known for his Emmy-nominated portrayals of Franklin D. Roosevelt on television, and to younger generations for his role as Richard Gilmore in Gilmore Girls, as a ubiquitous narrator for historical programs on the History Channel, and as the spokesperson for Dodge automobiles in the 1990s.


  1. Theres a definite resemblance.

  2. Last time I saw Edward Herrmann (that I remember) was in Peter Bogdanovich's THE CAT'S MEOW - in which he was playing Wm. Randolph Hearst. He looks far more like Rudy Vallee than "Pops"!

  3. I wish I could have found a younger picture of Edward Kirk Herrmann, to compare with Rudy Vallee.

  4. Maybe not so much in their respective younger days. Here's Edward Herrmann from the Disney film "North Avenue Irregulars".

    Now look at Rudy Vallee from "How To Succeed In Business Without really Trying". Scroll down to the 6th picture.

    I think the similarity grows as they both age.

  5. Those are great pictures.. Thank you for sharing them with us.
