Good one! As I was scrolling down, before getting to the caption, I thought “Rainn Wilson”.
When Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson (famous Norwegian author who won a Nobel Prize) got Writer’s Block, it definitely was not a good time to take his photo or paint his portrait.
Humorous bit within the Wikipedia article: When Norway was attempting to dissolve the forced union with Sweden, Bjørnson sent a telegram to the Norwegian Prime minister stating, “Now is the time to unite.” The minister replied, “Now is the time to shut up.”
He looks like Kelsey Grammer.
Dwight was the first person I thought of when I saw this. Excellent.

“I’ve got out my $hit stick. Let’s see what we can stir up.”
The most important victim of the coiffeurs and barbers‘ strike :
He exudes a dignified air/
And he radiates force with his stare/
But it all comes to naught/
Though he tries (as he ought)/
For he cannot control his own hair..///
He’s finding it hard to bear/
But his barber just isn’t there;/
That wretch, once despised/
Has now unionized /
And left him alone in the chair..

My name is Bjørn Bjørnson, I come from Wiscønsin…
I walk loudly and carry a small stick…….
The object he has in his hand/
I’ve been given to understand/
Is called a baton/
Which he carries upon/
Those days when he’s leading a band.///
Those occasions on which he has played/
(Though conducting is not his main trade)/
It’s frequently said/
Any group that he led/
Left Sgt.Pepper’s bunch in the shade…///
Or tuba’s deep thundering toot/
Or the reeds and the strings/
Or a number of things/
He becomes just a dude in a suit.
I don’t know what he’s planning on doing with that stick, but I’ll bet it’s gonna leave a mark. :)
