The Face of the Ghost Brigades

This fellow purports to be the face you see on the cover of the Subterranean Press limited edition version of The Ghost Brigades; apparently he knows Vincent Chong, the artist, and Chong used his likeness. If true (and I don’t particularly have reason to doubt him), I think this is pretty neat; I was wondering who the model might have been. Personally I think it looked like actor Neal McDonough, and thus might have been based a bit on him, but this works for me, too (I also think it’s looks a bit like my childhood friend Tom Zimmer, but that’s clearly just me). And given who the likeness is supposed to be, it makes this picture strangely poignant.
