Jennifer Jason Leigh - Madonna Coincidence?

I was flipping through the pages of the Times this week, and did a quick doubletake when I saw the ad for Abigail's Party, the Mike Leigh play currently being presented by the New Group. The play takes place in the 1970s and stars Jennifer Jason Leigh:


Where had I seen that look before? And then it dawned on me. J.J. looks eerily like a certain pop singer who has embraced a 1970s disco style for her most recent incarnation:


If you don't think they look alike, consider this: Jennifer Jason Leigh, playing the hostess of the party, speaks in a fake British accent, just like Madonna!

Coincidence? Methinks not.

See my earlier example of spooky celebrity happenstance: the Taylor-Lopez Coincidence.
