Easy on the Eyes Shakespeare

According to the Guardian, a portrait that has been mouldering away in a great house lo these many years has been determined to be an actual painting of Shakespeare done during his lifetime.

I don't know if the man in the portrait really is Shakespeare, but that doesn't matter--he LOOKS like Shakespeare should look. Dashing, but very intelligent. Nicely starched collar. More hair than one would imagine. In other words, very much a thinking woman's bit of crumpet. :)

Here he is. What do you think?

When I read that article I thought the same thing...well he's very dashing for their unhealthy living conditions back then, isn't he :]
