    Didn’t expect that. Thought he was a dark Italian or Spaniard.

    Wow.. he’s Jewish and ancestry is from Syria, yet he plays all of these Italian, European roles… interesting. He loos mad in this pic… lol

    • Capricious says:

      Um, Syrians and Italians kinda lookalike, since they lay on the Mediterranean.

      No need to be surprised…

        Modern Syrians don’t look like Italians, they’re Arabs. And Dan Hedaya is not an ethnic Syrian. He looks like a mix between Nixon and Oliver Stone.

        Beside what you WANT things to be, they are simply not XD. This man above is clearly of non-European descent, just as yourself i guess.

        Since your IQ is so low, which means you cannot accept reality and may not know good enough geography, the same goes for regarding “the Mediterranean sea and the country Syria”. Still the Mediterranean as a SEA between THREE continents is irrelevant XD.

      He does look Sicilian, though. His look wouldn’t be so foreign in southern Italy and Greece.
