Who is this person? I have glossy stickers of this face on surfaces all over New York city. Who is he?

Looks like Rosey Grier to me.

I'm going to second Rosey Grier.

More info than anyone needs -- I just got a copy of his macramé-for-men book from the 1970s for my husband as a gift. Also sang, "It's alright to cry," on, "Free to Be You and Me." You could say we are fans.

Response by poster: If it were rosey grier, doesn't it seem that I would be able to find that image by Google Image Searching his name? That guy looks more South Asian to me than Rosey Grier. Other suggestions welcome.

Yeah, I have the Rosey Grier book, too, and that's not him.

Are we sure that's not just some random guy who's being pranked?

Rosie Grier is like eighty years old. The guy in that photo is say 30? A 50 year old photo of Roosevelt Grier I guessing would have more of an afro?

That is NOT Rosy Grier at any age. Doesnt really even look that much like him.

Oh, God, I just saw this posted on Facebook this morning, but damned if I can remember where (and I'm not paging all the way back to look). some sort of viral.
