Mind-blowing photo shows Will Smith looking exactly like Uncle Phil

A photo of Will Smith bungee jumping is blowing up on Reddit after one user pointed out how much the 48-year-old actor resembles another 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' character.

The selfie in question was taken from an unflattering angle, which makes the slender actor appear a lot heavier than usual.

This sudden weight gain paired with Smith's squinty expression and graying beard makes him a dead ringer for late actor James Avery, aka the beloved Uncle Phil.

Spooky, right?!

Of course, Reddit users have taken to the comments section to point out the strong "family resemblance" between the two.

"I never realized how much uncle Phil looks like he could really be Will's uncle," wrote one user who might not understand how casting works. "There's actually kind of a strong resemblance.

"You either die as a fresh prince or you live long enough to become Uncle Phil," said another, in a nod to 'The Dark Knight.'

Tragically, Avery passed away in 2013 after complication arose from an open heart surgery.

But his legacy -- and, apparently, his face -- still live on.
