Gone in 60 Seconds with Sphinx

Apparently I look like the character "Sphinx" from the movie "Gone In 60 Seconds". Why do I bring this up well because four different people in the span of one week have asked if I was the actor Vinnie Jones who portrayed "Sphinx" in the movie "Gone In 60 Seconds". When I was in college, before I started shaving all my hair, I was told I looked like Jim Carey from "Ace Ventura" (more the hair than anything else). Then when I got into grad school I was told I looked like Robin Williams. When I first shaved my head of all its hair almost three years ago I was told I looked like Nicolas Cage and then Bruce Willis. Now it is Vinnie Jones. I travel constantly for work and four different TSA personal asked me if I was that actor. I don't know why they are all TSA, but what struck me as odd was that they all watched "Gone In 60 Seconds", which was a pretty decent action film but was an 'ok' hit at the box office. I have been told I look like Jason Stathom of the movie "Transporter". But Vinnie Jones seems to take the cake recently. Now that I googled his character and movie and identified him as Vinnie Jones it is scary to see the uncanny resemblance. I'm not going to post a personal pic of mine, but those who know me feel free to chime in, this is one ugly dude!

I don't see it either. Maybe b/c of the eyebrows? However, you have stong brows and his are out of control!
Tell those people they need an eye exam.

Maybe it's just that they see you as as a good-looking guy and are just flirting with you!

If your him can you get a hold of his bank account???he's got to have some money that you could put to good use or he could ask Ms. Joile-Pitt(since she was in the 60 sec movie) if they can donate some money to a good group like RCP or HSH:-)

Unfortunately they were three guys of the four. They must love cars.
