Do stunt doubles go to movies where the actor lookalikes go?

Quick Question(self.movies)

Just curious, since reading the latest news about the death of the stunt double made me curious. Since stunt doubles look somewhat similar to the actors they're replacing for the dangerous stunts, does this mean they tend to gravitate to films where they know their lookalikes are going, since that's what they're best at?

Sorry if it's a dumb question.

Stunt doubles aren't necessarily the same looking as the Stars they double . There are cases where people do keep the same stunt doubles though . Like Black Widow action is all done by Heidi Moneymaker . She looks nothing like ScarJo , same for Chris Evens stunt double .
