If you run it through TinEye, you get over 400 hits. I only browsed a few, with no luck finding anything particularly useful. There were lots of hits from sites in Italy, so I wonder if that's where it originated?

EXIF metadata on the linked image yields nothing useful.

Looks a little like the Peacewalker....? Maybe not.

Am I the only one who thinks it looks like Jack Nicholson?

Ask stavros. He has been using it for a long time here.

After extensive experimentation, turns out it's the first result when you google image search "fuck off"

nothing like a lot of profanity-laden image searches to start off your weekend

Personally, I think he looks more like Christopher Lloyd.

No, different gesture for "fuck off" in Italy.

My first thought was Berkeley's Hate Man. But, now that I've looked up his picture, he doesn't look enough like Jack Nicholson to be the man in question.

Like jon1270 my first thought was Jack Nicholson. But I don't know his earlier roles to make a guess to a movie.

Chistopher Lloyd and Jack Nicholson both appeared in One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest. Google Image search doesn't look like its the one, though.

I had always assumed it was Keith Allen.

For some reason I always thought he was off Rab C. Nesbitt, but I've not watched it in ages and now I can't find a connection there. Maybe some other UK sitcom? *shrug*
