Ben is modeled after Jeff Bridges, especially his character in the Big Lebowski. He is wearing a shirt that says "Surf's Up" which is a reference to the movie by the same name about surfing penguins where in Bridges voices of the protagonists.

Oh right, I remember that crossing my mind at some point but then just forgetting to put it in there. Thanks, I will add that in!

Actually, Ben's face was modeled after Nick Nolte's, though it doesn't come across that way in the animation as much as it did on the model sheet. And sure, there's definitely some of The Dude in there, intentionally. But I have to draw the line at the idea that the "Surf's Up Waikiki" t-shirt is in any way a "reference" to a penguin movie, or Jeff Bridges' involvement therein. It's just a surf bum t-shirt.

This always happens...

You guys create some character... and everyone goes "oh he's based off of..." and then you have to speak up and set them right.

It's just coincidences people!!

Ben does look like Nick Nolte in that Hulk film now that JP mentions it.

All hail the master, for he has spoken!

Thanks for everything, Love the Fans.
