Separated at Birth?

Professor Dolores Umbridge from "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" and California Senator Dianne Feinstein.

And, if you've seen the movie, you know the similarities (downright creepy at times) aren't limited to their physical appearance.

For a while, I was convinced they had actually gotten Feinstein to play the role in the movie. Much like having Keith Richards playing the part of a ragged, old pirate, the coaching from off-camera would have pretty much been limited to "Just be yourself, you're doing fine".

So, yes, I enjoyed this scene quite a bit. Almost as much as the part where the Centaurs dragged her sorry ass off into the woods.
