Fresh off ‘NSync receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, one of the boy band’s members has people talking for another reason.
J.C. Chasez was regarded as a teen heartthrob during the group’s heyday in the late 1990s/early 2000s, but these days some people have a different opinion on his appearance … namely that he he kind of looks like Professor Severus Snape from the Harry Potter movies.
With his long, dark hair and black suit, I can definitely see why it’s an apt comparison. Check out the side-by-side from one Twitter user:
While being likened to the brooding Snape may not be the most flattering of comparisons, other people qualified that he looked like a more attractive version of the wizard, like MTV’s Terron Moore, who wrote that Chasez looked like a “hot” version of the character:
Moore was far from alone in his feelings:
JC Chasez is a real life younger Snape and I’m so here for it.

Another user even went so far as to say Chasez’s new look is a cross between Loki and his fellow “Avengers: Infinity War” character Dr. Strange:
I feel like Loki and Dr. Strange had a baby and it's 2018 JC Chasez pic.twitter.com/WIKGoAnoji

Regardless of whom he looks like, Chasez’s long tresses are certainly a departure from the much shorter style he rocked as recently as 2016:
I’d say he’s pulling off his new look quite well! What do you think?
