Why do Italians, Greeks, Spaniards and Latinos look so similar? comment

I have noticed that there is a tremendous overlap between these four ethnic groups of people. Now, I know you might say that Latin Americans are mixed race, but I have noticed that many Latinos except for the PURE Indians or people with alot of African ancestry could pass as Italians, Greeks, Spaniards, etc. Think about all the movies where Latinos are cast as Southern Europeans and vice versa. In Scarface, Al Pacino, an Italian American, played a Cuban. Puerto Rican actor Raul Julia was cast as a Greek in the biography of Aristotle Onassis, and Cuban American Andy Garcia played an Italian in Godfather III. Edward James Olmos, Mexican American, has also been cast as Italian. My question is why is there such an overlap in the phenotypes of Italians,Greeks, Spaniards and Latinos?
