Default What actor does this Roman bust look like?

I'm thinking an English actor from one of the older movies, perhaps 1950s or 1960s? Even 1970s. Maybe a period film, Roman, or an intrigue thing?

Ahh, what a face though, a man's man.

Btw, this is actually Vergilius - Marble, Late 1st c. BC-early 2nd c. CE, Museo Gregoriano Profano ,Roma.

I thought he looked somewhere between Ralph Richardson and Michael Hordern, but Frank Findlay's also a good shout

The one on the right sort of reminds me of Benedict Cumberbatch.

Granted, quite a face (would not like to face a centurian or Roman legionaire in a fight with that face - he'd mean business!).

I can think of two who kind-of look like him. David Farrar, who played many roles as a hard adventurer or soldier (I saw him as a British naval officer in "The Sea Chase" the other day, and he was the local British resident in the Himilayan (spelling?) kingdom in "Black Narcissus" who is dubious about the Nuns' mission to the kingdom); Leo Genn, who played fairly charming people in many films, but did dramatic parts (one of the doctors involved in the murder case in "Green is For Danger, with Alistair Sim and Trevor Howard), and did appear as a Roman patrician in "Quo Vadis" as the writer and social critic (and Nero's temporary friend) Petronius Arbiter.

It might be. Pierre possibly thinks he knows how to be the world's greatest movie actor.
