    RIP, Peter.
    I've read about how many actors known for iconic roles were in real life similar to the characters they played.
    I've always wondered if that was the case with Peter, but I've always kind of doubted it.

    I'm wondering if he grew that long hair after he got the role.

    Might have grown it for the role, then just kind of kept it.
