The 'almost equal' person is:

the movie director Darren Aronofsky.

Because each of the people pictured are:

movie directors: Johnnie To, Anatoliy Mateshko, Santhosh Viswanath, and Joshua Sanchez. (All found by reverse image search - which I suspect was always the intended method as they are very obscure...)

Moreover, they have (respectively) directed the following movies whose titles fit the first four letter counts given in square brackets beneath the images:

[5] Three (2016)
[3] Dot (2009)
[3] One (2021)
[4] Four (2012)

Considered together - and noting the as-yet unused '[2]' letter count - these would be 'almost equal to'...

pi, the irrational number whose decimal expansion begins 3.14... So we need a director who has made a movie called 'Pi' - Darren Aronofsky's Pi (1998) fits the bill perfectly!
