    Wow, this is a terrible picture of him, didn’t even recognize it was him. Ethnic you shouldn’t be wasting your money on such un-photogenic shots my man!

    • andrew says:

      • follers says:

        The lighting is a little dark but otherwise this is a great picture.

        • ethnic says:

          I don’t see anything wrong with this pic.

          • andrew says:

            the lighting. He seems to be under a shadow

          • Check7t says:

            Well, I understand you pay money for these pictures, I wouldn’t want you to squander your money on bad shots. I see un-photogenic pictures occasionally (Angelina Jolie, James Franco, etc) as I comprehend getting a good visual of someone’s physiognomy is important, but the photo should also be good too.

            I just checked prphotos and it seems this was the only one available at the time.

            It just seems like sometimes you select pictures of people when they’re making an odd countenance or experimenting with a new hairstyle (like the Gerard Butler picture he has curly hair) and not usual pictures we’re used to seeing of the person.

      Really? I mean the guy isn’t the type I’d go for, but I gotta admit that he looks gorgeous in this picture. Very symmetrical face. I’d prefer smaller eyes though. lol

    He was really good playing the serial killer in The Fall with Gillian Anderson.
