The lead character for Bethesda's 'The Evil Within' looks strikingly similar to one of my favorite Game of Thrones actors...

Maybe I'm imaging things here, but it looks like we might have another game publisher unintentionally(?) ripping off the likeness of an actor.  In the latest gameplay trailer for Bethesda's The Evil Within, it looks like the main character has a striking resemblence to Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister).  Check out the comparison photo below, and I'll let you be the judge.

Hmm.  Is this another case similar to Ellen Page's gripe with the developers of The Last of Us? Sound off below, and let me know how crazy I am.

We've reached out to Nikolaj for comment, but we have not yet received a response.  We'll keep you posted on his thoughts if/when he responds.
