Ha! I knew it. He was born in New York, he’s an actor, his nose, eye shape and skin tone All together and I wasn’t surprised to see his Jewish name.

Um no, just because he has hooded eyes? He looks very Jewish.

If you want part Asian look at Jimmy Fallon and David Walliam.

Heh, anytime some celebrity on this site who is white and has a phenotype darker than an Atlantid or Alpine they claim the person is part black or Native.

Someone even commented on George Clooney that he looked Indian…

*White American celebrity.

I know this is old, but in George clooney looking Indian? Like South Asian indian? Why not? They’re for the most part cauasianoid and although they’re darker on average I have a friend whose paleish and has blue green eyes and a big but straight nose. If you meant native then well..
