    1. In his younger days, yes. Now he looks like he's made too many bad choices. Rugged turned ragged if you ask me.

  3. I think they could be doubles. Incredible how they have the same head shape, nose, expression. Yes ....that's the answer. Yes.

  4. Ha. Naturally, Penn will play Benno von Archimboldi in the Hollywood version of 2666. He will project being a seven-foot tall, 80-year-old German.

    1. Now I'll really have to learn about Archimboldi to see if Penn could possibly carry him off.

  6. I was just thinking he reminded me of Vincent Cassel - well, in a certain light, from a certain angle.

  8. Yes! I can see it!

    I've always felt terrible for thinking this, but whenever I see a photo of Willa Cather I'm reminded of a young(er) Alec Baldwin.
