Dude even has a prognathism in his side profile. Definitely has some ssa ancestry.

Imo no. Andrews noses look different when they smile and their features differ too. Brian’s nose looks more wider and broader than that guys.

I still stand by my guess. I never even thought twice till I saw his name pop up on some anthropology forum and some people whose profiles claimed they were either African American or born in Africa all stated he looked mixed.

Here’s what I mean.….0…

His eye shape and nose nostrils look very non White influenced. Imagine if he had brown eyes, hair and skin I wonder how much people will notice.

the funniest thing is that despite being “whiter” than the average European person he looks “non White influenced” to you. He looks straight North European/Germanic.

Why? Is it cause he has blonde hair blue eyes and sort of paleish skin? His lips may not be too big and he may not have a buldging rounded forehead or curly hair, but You really think these nostrils are common in Europe? I’ve been there, and am around a lot of people of Euro descent and his nostrils look very exotic.

Dude even has somewhat of a prognathism looking at his side profile. A feature that may indicate SSA admixture. And he’s American too which makes possibly being mixed a more likely probably. His eyes if I were to be honest look almost possibly Native influenced, seen several Latino Mestizos/Castizos with eyes like his though I may just be nitpicking at that.

I look at features and his eyes, nostrils amd jaws all look off to me. Would not be surprised if it turns he’s an octoroon and it was hidden off. Like that Jewish girl Lacey and that Barenaked ladies singer.

he has typical Cro-Magnon features (called Faelid or whatever by taxonomy experts), very common in North Europe. His phenotype is not that different from Matt Damon or Brad Pitt
