Looks Italian or at least Jewish to me. Something exotic about him.

neiltennant October 12, 2015 at 10:22 am

i totally agree

i reminds me of Adam Levine and other cool Jewish guys

impossible, he’s not short, swarthy and doesn’t have pounds upon pounds of body hair typical of Italians.

andrew June 27, 2016 at 6:13 am

were you talking of Danny De Vito? This is a crowd of 1000 Italians playing a Foo Fighters hit, if you don’t have a clue about how Italians look. Also the man at 4:18 is the organizer (Fabio Zaffagnini), and he’s Italian.

He’s got the strong face of a lot of Germans.

hesh123 September 10, 2015 at 12:14 am

The best looking man I have ever seen

celebfan September 6, 2015 at 9:41 pm

When I saw his pic, I thought he might be part Mexican.

xoxo November 19, 2015 at 8:03 pm

SmartAss August 16, 2015 at 11:51 am

Looks part Arab.

He has a dark complexion for someone of northern European ancestry. I wonder where he gets it?

abelleza August 13, 2015 at 5:35 pm

His swiss side could account for his complexion. I’ve seen quite few swiss people with dark hair, olive skin and pale blue eyes.

SmartAss August 16, 2015 at 11:57 am

Germans aren’t nothern European and they have against all stereotypes mostly a ‘dark’ complexion.

phaedra May 2, 2016 at 12:19 am

Er no, most Germans have a light complexion. As with Poles, Belgians and other Central Europeans.

You don’t have to be Northern European in order to have pale skin.

Freerk October 28, 2017 at 7:08 pm

Northern Germans are… Germanic and thus northern Europeans, with the center originally in northern Germany/Denmark/southern Sweden. Southern Germans are a mixture of Germanics and Celts, and can be regarded as Central Europeans (but mixed). Both have light skin and blond, brown or sometimes read or even black hair, albeit to a different degree (the percentage of blondes is significantly higher in northern Germany). The Romans in ancient times couldn’t distinguish between Germanics and Celts.

But there is an underlying population stratum of relatively dark (-haired) people that you will find throughout Europe. The blondes are just a mutation about 10-20,000 years ago, centered around the Baltic Sea, and not as wide-spread as rumours say. If you want to distinguish different ethnicities in Europe, facial features are a better indicator than skin or hair colour. And it’s always a guess, because you’ll find all types in all ethnicities, just to a different degree. There are “typical” faces though (difficult to describe abstractly).

Hoechlin looks like a typical European of the basic type, most probably of Rhaeto-Romance origin, regarding his Swiss-“German” heritage. Apart from his really dark hair, his face looks more German than Mediterranean, and his eyes are of a light gray (or blue?), what is common with central Europeans, but not in the Mediterranean.
