Neal McDonough is an American actor. His parents, Catherine (Bushe) and Frank R. McDonough, were Irish immigrants. His father was from County Galway and his mother was from County Tipperary.

A lot of times, people ask me if I’m black. They say, ‘Are you a black albino? Because you look so much like James Earl Jones, but very light.’ I always say, I’ll take that as the utmost compliment.

His mother and father both emigrated from Ireland. Mother from Tipperary and father from Galway. He’s got a similar background to myself.

Take a look at his picture here.

Another in denial. He obviously looks part black, in fact he looks related to Robert Ri’chard. This guy is not 100% white.

part black?? he’s actually one of the most depigmented actors in the showbiz, and he looks straight Nordic/Germanic etc The comparison with James Earl Jones is silly. Jones is clearly part white too.
