So Top Management and I just started watching the Cinemax television show Banshee, which neither of us had even heard of before, until Cinemax started running ads, trumpeting its upcoming second season. So we checked out the first season and, after only four episodes, Top Management has already decided it's Her Favoritest Show EVAH. (Disclaimer: she says this about every new show she enjoys. She's a fickle thing, as I well know, and I expect to be tossed aside Any Day Now for a new and improved model, who may or may not, in fact, be a model.)
Anyhoo, we were a few minutes into the first epi when she said, "Who do I think he is? I mean, I know he's not, but who do I think he is?"
"Liev Schrieber," I said. "Sabretooth, the bad guy from the bad Wolverine movie? And the utterly unnecessary The Manchurian Candidate remake?"
"Yup," she agreed. "That's who he's not but I was thinking he was."
A few nights later, she said, "Hey, remind me: who do I think he is? I mean, I know he's not, but who do I think he is?"
And this time my mind was a blank. Because we'd now watched several episodes and now he was who he was for me and I couldn't see who he wasn't anymore.
So naturally, I googled. And autofill informed me that Antony Starr looks like...Scott Speedman?
No, he doesn't. I mean, yeah, okay, he kinda does, but nowhere near as much as the guy I couldn't think of any more.
So I left it blank and hit enter. And on the first page of results is a hit that says Antony Starr looks like Ray Stevenson. Which, again, yeah, okay, I can kinda see that. Only not really, not nearly as much as he looks like the guy I couldn't think of any more.
And then I remembered. And as a service to others, I'll just leave this here.
(He does kinda look like a much smaller, younger Ray Stevenson.)
