    Russell Crowe?

    Is it just me or does Alexander Khalifman look a lot like Russell Crowe?

    YOU be the judge....

    Here's another one for you guys (though not as good as the Khalifman pic).

    Sergei Karjakin's dad or.....Billy Connolly?

    Not bad, but sadly sans the brightly coloured facial hair.

    Russell Crowe is my favourite actor. He was just brilliant in Gladiator and American Gangster. He is the most talented actor of the past decade without question.

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    Nothing. This is a non-chess thread. (Edit: oops, it's not.) Russell Crowe is one of my favorite actors too. Of course he was born in NZ!

    The reason this was put in chess is that the premise of the opening post was that Crowe looked like Khalifman. The recent interest is more Crowe related than anything to do with Khalifman.

    Yes it is quite a long read but worth it IMO. Nothing to do with chess.
