Another down and dirty trick I like for lining up 2 different takes (right at the split point in your scene) is to have a field monitor so you can play back your first take. Pause it right when you want the split to occur and use a dry erase marker to trace the actor's outline on the screen (you may want a clear plastic screen protector over your screen depending on the surface).

Line the actor up with the outline you traced and roll subsequent takes. This should give you a very close match for your split point. You can use warping tools to get the exact match.
