Who is this actor?

Is this the guy who plays Randall's biological father in This is Us? If not, he's his doppelganger.
Spoiler for size.

No. And it doesn’t look anything like him to me.

Eh, I think they do. Then again I'm often accused of thinking two people look alike when other people don't. I see doppelgangers everywhere.

Actor from This is Us is Ron Cephas Jones.

I don't see what you're seeing that gives him any similarity to the person in the ad you posted.

Wonder what the name of the one in the ad is. I was watching Hulu and the ad came on and I went, William!

Yeah, this thread is NOT going to end well.

The only thing those two men have in common is they are both black.

I was just busting balls and stating the obvious. I don't think the OP is a racist.

Re: Who is this actor?

So ... can I say “Samuel L. Jackson”?

(Even though he is obviously Lawrence Fishburne.)
