He`s strangely familliar

Hey guys, don`t you think J. R. R. Tolkien looks just like Ion Iliescu, but without glasses? :paranoid: Or maybe he looks like some other well known people, but we don`t realise.

Hehe, I admit I had to google the name "Lon Lliescu" and find a picture to know who you were talking about. Lol, he does look a little similer to Tolkien but Tolkien was the hansomer man. Which is kind of strange to say about a dead man? :paranoid: :catsmiley:
I was born to catch dragons in their dens
And pick flowers
To tell tales and laugh away the morning
To drift and dream like a lazy stream
And walk barefoot across sunshine days.

Please post a link to Lon Lliescu's photograph, to enable our comparison. :elfconfused:

Also I think to be more accurate, "Lon Lliescu will be found to look like Professor Tolkien" as Tolkien actually preceeded Lliescu", or doesn't "who came first" really matter. :elfwink:

Actually it`s Ion iliescu, but I had to use big i, it`s the least I can do for the president of my country. And about the age... hmmm, it`s true that Tolkien is dead, and it is normal to be older, but somebody who saw Iliescu can say the contrary. He`s not as young as he looks :). I`ll try to find a photo with him, but I`ve got no guarantee that there is a picture of Iliescu that is not spitted or God knows what weird rituals can happen to a photo. That`s because he`s very loved in our country, too loved I might add. You can figure it out from his nickname : The Granny. And I still don`t know all the details about the man. :D

Okay, I found one Ion Iliescu. And yes from the bridge of the nose up they are very similar. Think it is the eyes. Compare with the middle pictures of Tolkien.

*giggle* Doesn't matter how you say it since it's such a trivial thing.. And I was just making a small, accurate comment since the topic is on how they look similar :P: :catsmiley:
