Beardy Nodding Guy?
#1
Pardonay moi if this isn't the place to ask... but who is the bearded Nodding Guy in GuilliameB's animated GIF?
Been meaning to ask for months.
I get that its just one of the long line of post-battle heroes going "Hey... you're alright. We're cool. Everything's going to be fine as long as we got each other, my friend & brother" etc. (Like at the end of Star Wars for instance.)

Good Grief! Thought it would turn out to be some beloved French actor unbeknownst to us British.

Could do with some re-centering: less pre-nod, more post-nod!

I'd always assumed that it was you, Guillaume. Are you pulling our leg(s)?

Edit. No! I'm wrong. It is Robert Redford. Just googled it.

I must admit to being slightly disappointed upon meeting Guillaume and he not resembling his avatar Big Grin

You sure?  (this is where I finally get banned from this forum)  I saw Guillaume's avatar before I had the pleasure of meeting the man.  The first actual meeting was at Oxford Audio and as I recall I did actually recognise him from his avatar.  I remember thinking that he did look a bit younger and better looking now he had trimmed his beard back a bit, but this is true of most men with beards.  I am obviously not a huge fan of Robert Redford.  (who is he, anyway??)  It's curious thinking back, I just walked straight up to him and said hello, how else could I have recognised the man if not from his avatar?  I suppose I did know he was going to Oxford Audio, and he did turn up sporting a very fine Devialet Chat polo shirt, but this is not enough, it was the guy in the avatar.   There is another explanation of course, Guillaume and Robert Redford might be closely related?  A brother from another mother perhaps?? Shy

Of course, none of this explains why Rufus looks like a giant cat.

EDIT:  I have just googled Robert Redford out of curiosity and to find out who he is, in some of his more recent pictures where he looks a little older, he does have a little bit of the look of my elder brother.  What does all this mean???? Sad

Brian, I think its means that Guillaume's mothers, fathers, uncle, cousin twice removed, youngest daughters husbands, brothers lover is related to your elder brothers fathers, sisters daughters sons, second cousins, auntie !! this could explain why i met you both at the same open day in Oxford ...i don't believe in coincidences LOL

Guillaume sporting his lovely Devialet Chat polo shirt did help me to identify him

And Pim so long as you run around with no shoes on I'm sure I will recognise you if I ever venture to Oz

I'll give you a hint that will increase the odds significantly; this feet are about two meters away from my eyes  Wink

I believe it's from the excellent movie "Jeremiah Johnson" released back in good ole 1972.  Cool
