WHOlland or WHOlander?
Have you ever been mistaken for another person to the point of receiving money meant for them?
British Actor Tom Hollander often gets mistaken for Spider-Man star Tom Holland—to the point of receiving the money that should have been for Tom Holland when they shared an agent for a time.
Hollander revealed to the host Seth Meyers that his agency sent him an email with an attached payslip with a seven-figure sum labeled as the first tranche of a box office bonus for The Avengers
“I don’t think I’m in The Avengers,” Hollander whispered to himself when he received the amount.
This was not the first time that Hollander was mistaken for Holland.
“I’m (sometimes) introduced to somebody’s very, very excited, then confused, then disappointed children,” Hollander recalled.
“It’s been very difficult. Because, you know, I was here first,” he joked.
Hollander was a guest on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers for his forthcoming series Feud: Capote vs. The Swans. He plays American writer Truman Capote.
