While Jamie Foxx is still on the mend from a yet to be disclosed medical complication – he was admitted to an Atlanta, Georgia hospital on April 13 – the show must go on.

With the 55-year-old in the hospital, production on Back in Action with costar Cameron Diaz has continued, and the crew has found a clever way to deal with his absence.

The Netflix movie's plot and release date have yet to be revealed, but will feature Cameron back in action; it's her first film in nearly ten years.

As the actress returned to set while her co-star continues to recover, she has been filming instead opposite a double for Jamie, who appears to be a total doppelgänger in new photos taken on set.

In photos released on Tuesday, Jamie's dupe, named Chris, is seen next to Cameron, and has his exact facial hair and buzz-cut.
