    I was flipping through channels last night and it landed on FOX and that new show The Loop was on and Carlson was playing some doctor on there. Still didn't keep it from sucking ass though.

    I was watching season two of The Sopranos last night and noticed another face from The Shield in the second episode. None other than Danny.. I think she was some sort of prosecuting attorney or something. She was only in it for about 2 minutes though.

    I don't know if this was mentionned before (I did not have the strength to go through the 9 pages), but I looked "Switchback" a couple of minutes yesterday on TV, and Walton "teeth" Goggins had a short apperance in there. I almost did not recognize him cause it was short and he looked much younger, but that was him...

    I did not watch the whole movie (drunk + tired), but it seemed cool so maybe I'll rent it

    Never heard of it but yeah.. he does have some chompers on him. Looks like Matt Dillon in "There's Something About Mary".

    Also, the Thai kid that beat the old man half to death... I saw him in the trailer for "Fast and the Furious:Tokyo Drift" Looks like he has a fairly major role in it.

    I was impressed by that kids acting ability even in such a small role. Shame his career has gone so far downhill. I doubt we will ever see him (or anyone in that movie) ever again.

    Mageina Tovah (Farrah) and Kenny Johnson both starred in Cold case together, she played a girl in a rehab.

    Don't know if already talked about, but Melanie Lynskey played in season 2 as Marcy Lindhoff, a woman who, with her husband, kidnapped and cut an arm off a girl. She cold-bloodly tricked and manipulated Dutch to believe she had done nothing
    Well, you may know her as Rose, the crazy hilarious stalker of Charlie Harper in Two And A Half Men!
    Quite a shock to see her in that role when you know her as Rose!
