Who I look like--the latest suggestions

For some odd reason, I seem to remind random strangers of a bunch of different celebrities. No, I'm not hallucinating. It's true. People that I play poker with will tell me that I look like somebody famous. In the distant (as blogs go) past, I've mentioned that people have told me I resemble Bill Gates, Zeljko Ivanek, Robert Varkonyi, Scott Adams, Joe Pantoliano, and David Cross. (See posts here, here, here, and here.) I've also been told John Malkovich, though I don't think I ever blogged about that one. ("Mr. Son of a Bitch--let's play some cards!")

Well, in the last two days I've had two more names added to the list. While playing at the Hard Rock Saturday night, the guy sitting next to me out of the blue asked me if I read comic books. Not since I was a kid, I told him. He said that that very day there was some sort of gathering going on at the Hard Rock involving a comic book artist named Grant Morrison, and I looked a lot like him. I had never heard of him, but here's his Wikipedia entry, and here's the accompanying photo they display:

Then last night, while I was playing in a HORSE tournament at the Orleans, the player on my left was watching music videos on his phone. He paused one of them, showed me the frame it was stopped on, and asked me, "Recognize this guy?" He looked vaguely familiar, but I couldn't put a name to the face. He told me, "It's Moby. You look a lot like him." 

I suppose there's some truth in that, at least if you pick the right photo:

Holy crape you look just like Mont in that pic.

If you told me that was a pic of you and not Moby, I'd believe you. Wow.

Grant Morrison is one of the great comic book writers, not artists.

All us bald guys look like Moby!
