Riddle me this: would you recognize Anderson Cooper without his snowy mane? Erm, no. Same goes for the other silver fox, John Slattery. Or, for people who have no idea who he is, Roger Sterling on Mad Men.

Turns out, Slattery wasn't born looking like Jack Frost's love child. Before Matthew Weiner turned him into some kind of demigod, he was such an average-looking dude that it's kind of underwhelming. Once upon a time, he had brown hair, and his brown hair was all over a 1980s Sports Illustrated commercial, in which he tries to make you call to sign up for a subscription. WTF is calling, amiright?!
