Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson told SI.com in November that he was growing out his hair to look like a guy on the History Channel series Vikings, now he’ll be appearing on the show. 

Donaldson’s hair is apparently close enough to what the guys on the show wear that he’ll be making an appearance this season.

“I’m trying to grow my hair out right now like the guy on Vikings [Ragnar Lothbrok], where it’s really long and it’s kind of got three big braids going down the middle of it,” told SI.com before he was named MVP.

Here’s what it looked like back in December.

He’ll look even better when he’s wearing fur.
