Tons of players have tried their luck at winning a big cash prize on The Chase over the years, but sometimes they look a lot like famous film stars.

The ITV game show returned on Friday night (September 23) with a fresh batch of contestants eager to win big against their chaser, Darragh 'The Menace' Ennis.

Ryan, Angie, Cassie and Henrik stepped into the studio, but it's clear Henrick left Bradley rather distracted with his appearance just minutes into the episode.

American quizzer Henrik was first up to face the chaser, and he got off to an impressive start in the game by racking up £6k in his cashbuilder.

When it came to his face-to-face with Darragh, though, Bradley seemed more interested in Henrik than cracking on with the game.

That's because he thought the contestant looked uncannily like veteran Hollywood actor Richard Dreyfuss.

Dreyfuss, 74, won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 1978 and has starred in huge flicks like Jaws, American Graffiti and Stand by Me.

As far as we know, Richard has never set foot on The Chase, but perhaps Henrik's appearance gives us an idea of what he'd look like on the podium.

Luckily for Brad, Henrik made it through to the final chase alongside his teammate Cassie, with a total of £10k in the bank.

But they didn't perform well and only managed to lock in 10 points, which made it easy work for Darragh to catch the pair.

He caught them with well over one minute remaining and told the team they missed the other two players and that they should have done better.

Henrik admitted that it was over extremely quick, and Darragh told them they were better than their results suggested but "didn't have a chance" in the end.
