Shark Life: San Jose Vikings

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

WARNING: MAY CONTAIN MILD SPOILERS FOR SEASON 6 PART 2 OF VIKINGS.

Watch out, Hollywood.

Brent Burns has long been a fan of the TV series Vikings. And his signature look - with the top knot and long beard - means that he would fit right into the world of the show. 

And you know what? He did. 

When the second half of the sixth season of Vikings dropped earlier today, most binge-watchers probably didn't really take note of the tall, bearded character that appears in the 13th and 14th episodes. Unless, of course, those binge-watchers are hockey fans. 

Burns - already one of the most interesting men in hockey - just became even more interesting with his turn as the character Skane. 

"I have a new ally. His name is Skane. Not difficult to remember. And, as you all will discover, hard to forget."

We'll refrain from spoiling the episodes for you, but let's just say there's some channeling of Brad Pitt in the role. 

And of course, we credit our award-winning commercials for his acting chops. 

BONUS: Amazon Prime Video's X-ray feature just clued us into the fact that Burns's IMDB photo is absolutely perfect.
