The Boy Is The Father Of The Man
Ya know, these recent pictures of Bob Geldof from all this Live 8 stuff have been driving me nuts because they reminded me of someone I'd seen before.
Suddenly, it occurred to me just where:
Rock me, Amadeus!
If anyone ever decides to do a movie on what Mozart would have been like in middle age, I think Sir Bob is their man.
UPDATE: And we also know what he'll look like when he's been dead for 1000 years:

Actaully, I think he looks more like the movie Denethor's brother or something.
Oh, what a great idea for a new LOTR spin-off! Weaver plays Denathor's crazed sister who runs off to Fangorn Forest! We could call it "Balrogs In The Mist"!
That's an uncanny likeness, except, y'know, for the "Mozart had more talent in his fingernail clippings than Geldoff has in his entire freaking body" part.
Oh, and Sigourney's butcher.
All of you are wrong: the correct answer is Emil Minty, who played "the feral child" in "The Road Warrior". Back when he was flinging around a stainless steel boomerang, who among us knew he'd grow up to be a Boomtown Rat and a Knight of the British Empire?
Forget the hair and concentrate on that Kennedy face.
