...Now that it's nearly over. Which is a shame, because Mr Bea and I need someone to settle an argument for us, which seems like the perfect de-lurking activity. Regardless - delurking week or not, can you please tell me whose face you think this is?


Recently seen on an a billboard advertising jewelry at the local cinema. I apologise for the poor-quality photo - my excuse is it was taken at night, indoors, at a crowded shopping mall, with a point and click.

I might add that Mr Bea tried to bias the results by naming the file according to who he thinks it is. Just in case any of you happened to look at the file name before making your decision. Ha! He thinks he can sway things that easily!

The Verdict

The verdict, essentially, is that Mr Bea won't admit he's wrong. Perhaps I should have seen it coming. To fill you in on the background, I also said Johnny Depp. Then I said, no, wait, it's a non-celebrity look-alike model. Then I looked at the billboard opposite and there was Charlize Theron wearing the women's version of the watch or I'm a fried turkey, so we agreed it was reasonable to assume this "mystery man" was, indeed, an A-list celebrity. So I said it had to be Johnny Depp.

Mr Bea says Jason Lee.

Now. I have a whole lotta votes for Johnny Depp and zero for Jason Lee, and ok a few who said not Johnny Depp but someone who looks like him but then you didn't know about Charlize Theron at that stage, and one or two other votes here and there but all in all, according to the jury, I think I won. Add to that the fact that Johnny Depp and Charlize Theron have modelled the same brand of watches (damnit, why can't I find an image of this ad?) and I think my case is solid. Mr Bea wants to return "unproven" and call a retrial. He plans to throw the question open on his blog (can't tell you where, though) and see what happens. I'll let you know.

Sigh.

I'm thinking Johnny Depp.

So who wins the bet?

Meri-ann said...

Ooh me first!!!

I just found out about the delurking thing today as well, better late than never I spose!

As for Hottie McHot- it looks like the dude that Madonna used to go out with, father of her daughter; but otherwise I have zero idea. Cute though ;)

Meri-ann said...

I got pipped at the post!! d'oh!

Nilla said...

Well, Johnny Depp comes to mind -- but that's probably because the model is covered in make up a la Pirates of the Carribbean!!! LOL

That's my best suggestion -- sorry!

Ah, and re: the De-lurking Week -- I actually knew about this earlier this week, but was too....lazy? incapable? lackadaisical? (<-- Now THERE'S a word one doesn't hear much these days!!) to post about about it sooner!

So, I'm late in on the game too, having just posted about it yesterday. ;)

Hope you are well,
Nilla

Vee said...

At 1st glance I think it looks like Johnny Depp also.

Meg said...

I also thought Johnny Depp.

Lut said...

Not Johnny Depp, though that was also my first impression.

Ellen K. said...

Johnny Depp is my best guess, although I do think it's because of the heavy kohl eyeliner.

Kris said...

When I first saw the photo I thought Johnny Depp, too. But when I enlarged it, I changed my mind- I think the guy looks similar but not quite right for Johnny Depp (you know, because he and I are so close).

Beagle said...

I thought JD too, very pirate looking. So who is it really?

Beagle said...

Maybe it's really a woman?

Hopeful Mother said...

My vote was for Johnny Depp too - although I have to admit that I'm not "up" on a lot of pop culture and celebs...

Carly said...

Nah. Not Johnny Depp.
It's just some model, posing with the watch & necklace.
If it was anyone known it would've had his name on the poster saying "xxxxx wears it".

Carol said...

definitely I vote for Johnny Depp

Carol said...

Ok, now I'm waffling. When you enlarge the photo, it kind of looks like Prince.

I don't know!

Mel said...

Is it Johnny Depp?

Baby Blues said...

I think he's a Johnny Depp look-alike. Looks like him but I don't think it's him. Make-up does wonders!

Dramalish said...

I know... I came into Delurkers' Week late, too.
Sigh.
But I'm delurking now. That counts for something, right?
-D.

Mel said...

I thought it was Johnny Depp too. But he looks like a feminine version. There is that guy, that looks like Johnny Depp buts not. I can't think of him. A hotty though, but anyone that looks like JD is a hottie.

My Reality said...

You really must solve this for us - the suspense is killing me! I can't decide who I think it is.

TeamWinks said...

I too thought Johnny Depp.

serenity said...

It's NOT Johnny Depp? Totally looks like him.

aah0424 said...

It sort of looks like Depp, but not exactly like him. I'm thinking of a rock star...maybe Dave Navarro, but the cheekbones are a bit too high.

Carly said...

OK.
With the added info, it has to be Johnny.

katty said...

Johnny Depp, with Freddy Mercury's lips.

Nica said...

DAVE NAVARRO.

*DAMN* I miss having internet access.
