    He reminds me of a really young Orlando Bloom.

    It’s a variation of the Irish surname Mulholland

    Yeah interesting…especially how he is so pale and redhead but he has small brown eyes. Cute mix btw…Some Italians have that look (Michael Cera I believe).

      Michael Cera is half Sicilian and half Anglo, so that mix is probably responsible for Michael’s look, which is a little different than Tom’s.
