Hemsworth (left) and Morgan
Charles Morgan has gotten puzzled looks from people for a while now.
"They say 'You look familiar' but can't quite place where they know me, or who I look like," Morgan said.
Maybe that's because he strongly resembles Chris Hemsworth, the newest "Sexiest Man Alive" anointed by People Magazine.
A very observant co-worker pointed this out on a recent trip to Seafood R'evolution, where Morgan is a server. And all of Morgan's co-workers agreed with us when they compared him to a picture of Hemsworth.
The similarities are striking.
Morgan is 6'5", Hemsworth is 6'3", and they both have a similar build.
Morgan is 29. Hemsworth is 31.
Both have dark hair, and kind eyes.
Hemsworth played "Thor" in the Avengers movies.
Morgan has seen those movies.
Hemsworth is from Australia.
Morgan grew up in Mississippi, and moved away for a time to live on South Beach in Miami. But he missed the Hospitality State and his family.
"And I found out what it was like to live in that big city nonsense," Morgan said about leaving Florida to return to Mississippi.
He has worked in the restaurant industry for his whole working life, mainly as a server, and says maybe down the road he might go into management. He doesn't want to open his own restaurant. He stays in the industry because he is good at it, and loves doing it.
"I like making people feel important [during their visit]."
Morgan can cook, follows current events and takes care of his eight month old son. He reads mostly non-fiction in his spare time. He is soft-spoken, very smart and his eyes light up when he smiles or talks about what he does for a living.
When I asked him how he felt to be compared to the "Sexiest Man Alive" – he shrugged his shoulders because he really hadn't given it much thought.
So, for the women who are wondering - Morgan is single.
He would like to meet the right woman someday, but says he may be too busy right now for a relationship.
I have a feeling he'll have a lot more options coming his way very soon.
