The guy in the photo is Chris Hemsworth, no? He got his hair long because its part of playing Thor.

He is born in 1983.

(And the only thing he has in common with omtatsat is being Aussie...)
Ah yes, you're right. Mind you, I struggle to recognise my relatives at weddings.

This is scary. Gimme a discreet dark manbun on a full bearded lumberjack in a suit over this, anytime.

I am not picky, moi.
