The 757 gained the "forehead" when they stuffed the 767 cockpit into it at a late stage of the design. Originally, it had a 707/727/737 nose.

Does this have anything to do with its cockpit looking like the 767?
|Quoting AeroWeanie (Reply 10):|
The 777 started life as the 767X, which grafted the 767 cockpit onto a new, larger diameter fuselage. I just did some overlays and yes, the 767 and 777 nose lines match up to a point aft of the windshields.
