Professor X seems like a mentally-augmented Picard.

No, unless they're not very good actors who can only play themselves like Robert Beltran.

IIRC, in the X-Men/TNG crossover series, there was an explanation as to why Captain Picard and Professor X looked remarkably similar (the comic went with the idea that Professor X looked like the Bryan Singer version).

I'd be lying if I said I did.

I pretend they're men and women doing a job.

I'm weird that way.

No not really.

Actually, the familiarity of an actor playing one part too long can create a bias against hiring them for that very reason (the reason of "oh look it's Data playing in a romance movie") this is referred to as type casting.

I think you haven`t watch the cult classic ""Eating Raoul" yet. You should.
The Criterion Collection releases an extras-laden version of cult comedy Eating Raoul on DVD and Blu-ray.

The film is anchored by engaging performances from Bartel, Woronov and Beltran. They breathe life into the satirical screenplay...

I will be honest, and say that I couldn't get through an episode of Seventh Heaven without thinking that the family was headed by an ancestor of Will Decker, who happened to marry Gillian Taylor's identical twin sister...
