A writer at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour this weekend mistook Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje for Malcolm-Jamal Warner. But it’s unclear how, as aside from the fact that both of the actors are Black men, they look nothing alike.

The cast for ABC’s limited series Ten Days in the Valley sat on a panel during the TCA on Sunday. While Warner is a part of the cast, he was not in attendance, The Wrap reports. Still, the writer had questions for the Cosby Show alum and directed them at the only other Black man on the panel — Akinnuoye-Agbaje. According to The Wrap, Akinnuoye-Agbaje explained that he was a different person altogether. The site says he also commented, “What’s great about your question is that there ARE a few of us in this show.”

Apparently, the writer was not an official TCA member, as pointed out in this tweet:
