(Unbearded) Joel Baden and … Nicholas Guest

In the first video (appearing at 1:23) is Joel Baden, Professor of Hebrew Bible at Yale University and former member of the a cappella singing group The Yale Whiffenpoofs, attending a reunion for the “Whiffs of 1999”. In the second video (standing on the left) is Nicholas Guest, playing the preppy Harry, in the film Trading Places (1983).

We wonder if, by some chance, they might be related?
