I’m sure you’d be shocked if I tell you who he is; he is Xerxes (that ugly creepy looking king in 300)…

And to Ban Viking, really? lol He is still as cute in this pic. Maybe the lips are just too chapped I guess.

oh yes Xerxes has such creepy get-up but you can still tell he’s a hottie behind all that, I just really couldn’t tell Xerxes is Rodrigo until I looked him up online
btw, he’s so hot in Love Actually and What to Expect…
