Malcolm McDowell
They were born in England five years apart. Their physical similarities and the similarities of their names have led many to think they were brothers. But not only are their names spelled differently, Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) was born Malcolm Taylor, taking his mother's maiden name when he went into acting. He had his screen debut at the age of 25. Roddy McDowall (My Friend Flicka, Planet of the Apes), on the other hand, was a child actor who used his original name as his screen name.

I remember while Roddy was alive, it being mentioned they were cousins. Malcolm's mother being the connection, and the spelling difference being an issue due to a typo or misreading of handwriting leading to Malcolm's first credit having the wrong spelling, and it being a stage name anyway, so he stuck with it instead of making a big to do.
