Got linked here from the 2K forums. This guy looks EXACTLY like BioShock 2's Jacob Norris. I wonder if they used this exact photo in art design research for the game. The fact that it was taken in 1942 (the game being set in 1958, and predominantly styled with late-forties fashion) makes it all the more interesting.
