THE WEST WING star Bradley Whitford owes his rocker namesake $375 (GBP208) after cashing one of his royalty cheques.

The actor is often mistaken for Aerosmith guitarist BRADLEY WHITFORD - and once even made the most of the mix-up.

He explains, "The guitar player for Aerosmith is a guy named Bradley Whitford and this is probably a crime, but I got this residual for something that I didn't do - it was like $375, so I cashed it.

"So I owe this guy in Aerosmith $375."
