Cool dude. Doesn’t matter what people say, Italians are the best. They also age well, like Frank here. British men & women age terrible, you’d think Jason Statham is the same age as Sylvester Stallone in the Expandables, but he’s 22yrs younger. Doesn’t matter if Italians aren’t white like ignorant people like to say, Italians are still the coolest, most interesting, best looking, classy Europeans. I’d rather be Italian than British or German

He screams Italian. He looks like the stereotypical confident and talkative Italian.

He stated to be a second generation Italian-American and that his Calabrese grandparents talk to him only in Italian.

He’s kinda cute. I expected southern Europe. Looks more Slavic to me though (Serb/Croat).

yeah not a single person looks like what they are to you. im still figuring out of you’re trolling

He’s in his 50’s too. That’s why Italians are the best white boys in my opinion. The others like the British or Germans age like crap in just their 30s.

“All Italians are at least 60% afro American and frankie grillo is no exception”

Fuzzybear has always been a funny one D: The irony is though that the highest amount of black ancestry most likely occurs in Irish and English Americans along with other colonial groups. Black ancestry in whites is at it’s highest in the South of the United States which is dominated by Irish and British descendants. The British empire itself brought a lot of foreign DNA back to Britain, from India even. Brits like to bang the natives of the regions they conquer lol

I may be funny, but I’m usually correct. Also, it’s not just Brits who like to do the horizontal mambo with everyone they come contact with. Italians have done more than their fair share,especially in the Southern States .like Louisiana for instance.

@ Greyface

WOW,I’m on your mind that much

I honestly thought he was Hispanic when I saw him in Winter Soldier. Guess not.

caligurl2 April 18, 2016 at 8:28 pm

Well hispanics mostly get their looks from Spaniards, Portuguese, and Italians so that’s not so far fetched. Before mediterraneans Latinos were Native Americans and looked Asian/Mongoloid not mediterranean.

He looks like Ryan Seacrest.
