Have the Same Name as a Celebrity? Life-Swapping CBS TV Show May Want You

Oct 25, 2010  •  Post A Comment

If you have the same name as a celebrity, a reality pilot from CBS may be interested in you, reports the Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog.

Called "The Same Name," the show will take ordinary people with the same names as celebrities and have the celebrity switch jobs with the regular person, the story says. "For example, a plumber named John Goodman could trade places with the actor John Goodman, who would live the life of a plumber and perform his job during the stunt," the article notes.

The modern take of "The Prince and the Pauper" has proved popular with shows such as "Undercover Boss" and "I Get That a Lot," both also on CBS, the story notes.
