Jeffrey Katzenberg and "Monsters vs. Aliens" Villain: Separated At Birth?

People who’ve seen Monsters vs. Aliens have noticed a striking resemblance between the movie’s villain, an alien who wants to obliterate the world, and DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg. Was it intentional?

No, says the film’s co-director Conrad Vernon, but he did say that employees have been talking about the “likeness.”

But Katzenberg got the last laugh: “I can see why people think Gallaxhar was modelled after me given my well-known obsession with plotting the obliteration of the world.”

What do you think: Were Katzenberg and Gallaxhar separated at birth?
