Hollywood Trivia

I noticed something the other day that I thought would make a slightly interesting trivia challenge. A certain star of a current TV series has previously in their career portrayed two different comic actors in biographical movies. Any guesses?

Standard prize, as usual i.e. nothing but a virtual pat on the back.

I think it's Michael Chikli... (Below threshold)

I think it's Michael Chiklis, of "The Shield." He portrayed John Belushi in "Wired," and also Curly in a Three Stooges bio-pic.

Yes?

Damn, why is it every time ... (Below threshold)

Damn, why is it every time I try to prove how clever I am, it lasts less than a couple hours? Even when I do it in the middle of the night?

Yeah, it's Michael Chiklis, of "Wired," "The Three Stooges," "The Commish," "Daddy-o," and "The Shield" fame.

Congrats, David. You've absolutely RUINED my weekend.

Heh...didn't mean to ruin t... (Below threshold)

Heh...didn't mean to ruin the weekend, Jay! But for some reason, Chiklis has always "stuck out" in my mind, because when I heard that he had been chosen to portray Belushi, I was just confused...at the time, I had no idea why anyone would ever WANT to make a movie about Belushi, given his very brief career and drug-addled death.

And the name "Chiklis" always makes me, well, giggle.
