Hop Along Cassidy

Is it my eyes? I think Nick Bollea, Hulk Hogan`s son, looks like Bill Boyd, judging from the picture above. I`m going to get my eyes checked.

When I was a kid, I liked all of the Republic Pictures cowboy stars. Nevertheless, `Hoppy` was my fave. In 1949 he and `Topper rode out on the stage at the Chicago Amphitheater. I was there with my mom. One of the greatest thrills I had when I was growing up.
