Actor Leslie Jordan has delighted fans with an adorable throwback Thursday pic of himself from High School.

Inspired by the singer Chris Stapleton posting some throwback photos from his own youth, Jordan, 65, shared a photo from his school days.

Among those to comment was actor Justin Long, who said the young Jordan reminded him of Dustin Hoffman’s character in the movie, The Graduate (“Very Benjamin Braddock … ‘Mister Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me’.”)

Singer Brandi Carlile called him a “Cutie pie” while Sharon Osbourne simply said “😍 Omg”.
