Dallas Braden is now Willy Wonka or Kleinfeld from 'Carlito's Way'
You probably remember Dallas Braden as the guy who feuded with A-Rod and then threw a perfect game on Mother's Day in 2010 (or as the guy who flashed his tummy tattoo on the infield).
Back then, he looked like this:
Braden has retired from Major League Baseball and is enjoying a healthy second act as a baseball analyst for ESPN. And he's doing so ... in style.
That perm ... that suit ... it makes you say, "Man, that guy looks ridiculous, but I know I've seen him somewhere before." Luckily, you live in the future where people flocked to Twitter to point out all of Dallas Braden's hilarious doppelgangers:

Dallas Braden looks like Krusty the Clown's younger brother- Thomas Galvin (@ThomasGalvin) October 1, 2014
Regardless of which doppelganger camp you fall into, at least take the time to respect the knowledge while making Willy Wonka/Sean Penn jokes, because Braden still knows his stuff.
