Don't worry, Jake Peavy knows you think he looks like Jeremy Renner

Red Sox pitcher Jake Peavy is well aware that he looks like actor Jeremy Renner -- but he thinks that's A-OK:

"I guess that's a good thing, isn't it? Isn't he a good looking, handsome, very successful guy?"

Although the resemblance is so strong that he gets misidentified on city streets, Peavy takes it all in stride, saying "I just let it ride -- sign the autographs, say 'thank you', and walk on."

Weirdly, Renner appeared in 2010's The Town, a film set in Boston, with Fenway Park serving as a key location. Peavy now calls Fenway Park home, and pitched half the season wearing Boston on his chest.

Coincidence? Well, yeah, it's a coincidence. Still, it's a weird coincidence, right?
