Who Is That Guy?

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

He was born in Nigeria in 1960 – yet he’s a white man. Wut up wit dat, yo? He’s been in a zillion movies, and some of them weren’t terrible. Such non-terrible movies include a bunch of those The Lord of the Rings: a few Matrix flicks, V for Vendetta, and Captain America – a movie The Mayor watched half of last night before he started sawing logs. And he started sawing logs not because the movie was crap, because it isn’t, he fell asleep because he is such a hard and dedicated worker – working for you, to make your life better.

TLDG and The Mayor were snuggling last night while watching Captain America (The Mayor loves snuggling – sometimes he can snuggle with TLDG for up to 10 seconds at a time), and the buddy above comes on screen and TLDG says, “hey, who is that guy?” And then she said to The Mayor that he should have him on the Who Is That Guy? segment. But The Mayor wasn’t listening to TLDG, he doesn’t like the whole “talkie talkie” thing going on while he watches movies, so she had to remind hm again this morning that buddy should be in the Who Is That Guy? segment.

There aren’t many more hints The Mayor can give you here, you either know who it is or you don’t. BUT, it might help if The Mayor shows you a few more pictures – here’s one, this looks like another picture, here’s a dead givaway

The Mayor is nothing if not helpful.

Soooooo, Who Is That Guy?

Who Is That Guy?

Monday, May 30th, 2011

In order to correctly guess this week’s mystery person, you have to be seriously tuned-in to the Hollyweird scene. You would need to know the comin’s and the goin’s on the Hollyweird glitterati. You would have to know names, faces, shoe sizes, who dates who, that kind of thing. Or, possibly not. Perhaps The Mayor is engaging in hype. Perhaps The Mayor is not. What a mystery.

Last time we played this – dare I call it *game* – it was Mr Fnortner and Andy (he’s from America) that correctly identified our mystery guestas none other than Bruce Boxleitner. That’s some terrific guessin’!

But it’ll take more than just good looks, a pocket full of change and a limp to identify this week’s mystery person. In order to guess this week’s mystery dude you’ll need courage, stamina, and you’ll have to be wearing your big boy pants. Don’t you dare wear your small boy pants. That will not do. Plus, you look ridiculous and it embarrasses everyone. You silly little muffin.

Here is what The Mayor knows – off the top of his beautiful bald head – about today’s Who Is This Guy? guy

He was born in Belfast in or around 1953. He has been in about 80 feature flicks and some of them have been not-too-shabby. He was in Excalibur, There Will Be Blood, a few of those dispicable Harry Pooper movies, and The Mayor just saw him in The Rite, where he played a Priest.

He a really terrific actor, but he has a name that is pronounced completely different than how it is spelt. The Irish are tricky tricky that way. For instance, the female name Sioban is actually pronounced “Shavon.” Even the name Ireland; you would think it would be pronounced the way it is written, but it’s not, it’s actually pronounced “Jamaica.”

Weird that.

There’s nothing else to tell you about this mystery unit, all that is needed to know has been said.

Soooo, Who Is That Guy?

Who Is That Guy?

Before we start Who Is That Guy?, The Mayor needs to answer a few questions he received via the comment section the last few days from concerned constituents: 1) Buck – there was a picture there, but it seems it was pulled because I hot-picked it from another site and didn’t bother top give them credit. 2) Marc in Calgary – I would never censor your comments, I’m not sure where your comment ended up. 3) Zippy – Yes, washing your tender area with soap and water is a good start, but if the tiny bumps and discolouring persists, you will need to see your physician.

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get right to Who Is That Guy?

While watching Tron the other night, this guy popped up on screen, and with a mouthful of Sour Cream & Bacon chips The Mayor shouted out. “Gromph shlop yerbie mot!”

Loosely translated, what The Mayor was trying to point out was that there was a Who Is That Guy? guy on the screen. How exciting was that?

Very. Very exciting.

TLDG actually knew who this guy was, but The Mayor didn’t. The Mayor also didn’t know that today’s mystery dude was born in 1950, and has starred in such TV shows as  How the West Was Won, Bring ‘Em Back Alive, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, and Babylon 5.

The poor bastard was also married to Melissa Gilbert for 16 years before they split, so he obviously has the patience of Job and the eyesight of Helen Keller. But I digress…

And really, there isn’t a whole lot more The Mayor can tell you about this guy. He seems to have great hair, but bad taste in women. What God giveth (hair), he taketh away in other tings (his bad taste in women). Amen, indeed.

This is one of those times when hints don’t really matter, you’ll either know this guy or you won’t. That’s often how this game is, you know it, or you don’t. In the greater scheme of things, that’s how life is. And that my friends is some deep stuff. Thanks for reading.

Soooo, who is that guy?

Who Is That Guy?

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

It has been a while since we’ve played Who is That Guy?, two and a half months, in fact. The Mayor decided to scale back some of his weekly segments as they tend to get tired after a while. You know how it works, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”, and all. Or, like the bathroom wall graffiti taught The Mayor at an early age, “absence makes my farts grow stronger.” Or, as they say at Google, “Adsense makes your wallet grow stronger.” Which is a complete lie.

The last time we played Who is That Guy?, Andy (who may or may not have had sex last night), Mare (who would admittedly totally do the “Who is That Guy?” guy), DMorris (who has been absent from these pages quite a bit lately), and Finn (who has never had his name in brackets before today), all correctly identified John Wayne as the mystery person du jour. Did I mention Mare would have done John Wayne like John Wayne has never been done before? Mare was hot for John Wayne, and there was a very real possibility Mare and John would have made sexy had they ever met.

As for today’s Who is That Guy?, he was born in California in 1968, moved yo NY at the age of two and has been in such forgetable movies as Iron Man 2, Matchstick Men, Heist and Charlie’s Angels. He’s also been in a ton of TV shows, and The Mayor might have already featured him on this segment before, but today is not the day The Mayor is going to go archive hunting to find out.

The Mayor knows very little about this guy, but he does know that mystery boy hates LA, as he once described it as an “evil place.”

That’s all I have and that’s all you’ll get.

Who is that Guy?

And on a personal note, where are my car keys?

Who Is That Guy?

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

I’m sure many of you are thinking that you’re looking a picture of The Mayor when he was in his youth. Haha, well, I am devilishly handsome, you got me there, but it’s not a picture of The Mayor, it’s actually a picture of an equally famous movie star.

Who is this movie star, you ask? That’s part of the game, I can’t very well go and tell you who it is or I may as well change the name of this segment to “Here’s What’s His Face, Now Go And Enjoy the Next Post.”

Let me give you a hint though: He starred in a few cowboy movies in his time.

Who Is That Guy?

Monday, May 24th, 2010

Here is the Who Is That Guy guy explaining why Sour Cream & Bacon chips are 40x better than ketchup chips. I believe his final sentence on the matter consisted of the words, “and if you don’t agree, you can kiss my wrinkled ass.” Man, he’s pretty standoffish for an old dude, eh?

The gentleman in the picture has been around for a long time, since Moses was a piker, from what I hear. He was born in Sweden – home of Swedish girls, apparently – and moved to the United States of American in the early 60’s. He has been in dozens and dozens of movies. Some say he has been in dozens and dozens and dozens and dozens of movies. Technically that is correct, but anyone who corrects The Mayor just for the point of getting some attention, well, they are unstable emotionally in my eyes.

You probably know who this is already, and I don’t know what else to tell you about him, other than he was in one of The Mayor’s favourite movies of all time – Strange Brew. Yes, the movie about Doug and Bob McKenzie. Haters gonna hate, and that’s exactly what you’re doing.

He has a ring on his finger, bags under his eyes and is wearing a knitted jacket from the look of things. Boy, fashion doesn’t sleep, but it’s sure taking a long nap on this fella.

What Does This Remind You Of?

Maybe the title should read, “WHO does this remind you of?”

Hint: A blogger. A Mitchievillian commenter. From the southern USA.

When you figure out the answer, you will poo brix.

Who Dat?

Monday, February 8th, 2010

who_dat

There were so many people that correctly identified Sean Connery as the mystery person du jeur last week, that if I was to list all the correct identifiers, I would be typing out names for the next six hours. You have to admit, that is a lot of names. I know I’m a slow typer, but still, that’s a hell of a lot of names.

This week’s mystery a-hole (and I’m not even sure if he’s an a-hole, but I really like slandering people), is wearing a watch and smoking a smoke. Those are the only two hints you’re going to get this week, but I’m sure 93.4% of youz guys have already figured it out (Youz guys – haha, that’s priceless).

I know there are probably more than a few of youz (again, priceless) that think The Mayor’s hints are less than hints. And while I respect your opinion, I firmly believe my hints are pretty great hints. Sure, my hints don’t give the character away because they are unrelated to him in any shape or form. And sure, in context they make little to no sense whatsoever, but, hey – did you watch the Super Bowl last night? The Aints really kicked the Dolts in the balls, eh? And what score did The Mayor predict? Oh right, Aint’s 31 Dolts 24.

Pretty darn tootin’ close.

In other news, The Mayor totally took your attention away from the hints I laid out earlier. Youz guys are easily distracted (youz – haha – it never gets old).

Alfred Hitchcock & His Kids

I really like this picture of Alfred Hitchcock and his kids. I betcha he was a pretty good old man to have around the house. April Fool’s day would have been pretty amazing. Halloween would have been another story entirely. That’s my post, I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed bringing it to you. Salute!

Who Dat?

Vonbock was the only person to identify Charles Manson as last week’s Who Dat? person. Wondering how the dillio Vonbock correctly identified Manson from such an obscure picture and a lack of clues to his identity, I did a little security work to find out who this Vonbock person really is.

Firstly, Vonbock’s IP address came back and as I suspected, it was from California State Prison(CSP)-Corcoran’s Security Housing Unit. Plus, I found out the only song on Vonbock’s MP3 player is Helter Skelter. Also, if you rearrange the letters in Vonbock’s name, it comes up as Charles Manson.

Not to worry though, Vonbock Manson, I’m a forgive and forget kind ‘o guy. Let’s consider everything you’ve done as water under the bridge. Time for a new start, wouldn’t you say? Let bygones be bygones.

Wow, look at me,I’m a liberal!

Who Dat person in today’s picture is, we may never know. To be fair, YOU may never know. I totally know. You? Not so much.

I only have one clue for you today: In old pictures like this one, his face looks eerily similar to that of Tom Hanks. The poor bastard.

I know, I know, that’s not a clue, that’s a statement of fact. So sue me. Well then, I guess I’ll see you in court then, big guy.

Who dat?

Who Is That Guy?

who-is-this-guy

To find the last time we played Who Is That Guy?, you would have to go back to October 19. The corn was high in the fields, the litluns were a month back into school, and Grandpa was just getting sentenced for the crimes he perpetrated against those lovely sororety girls back ion 2004. Good times, good times.

Dmorris, Paul Mitchell of Two Dogs fame, and Nicoleall knew that the Who is That Guy? guy was none other than Lance Henriksen. Marc in Calgary, Godless Commie, and Wolfie had no idea it was Lance Henriksen, and that’s the reason why, to this day, I still mock and ridicule those three men. I mean, it’s Lance effin’ Henriksen, man!

Today’s mystery character was born in 1954 in a country we Canadians like to call “Canada”. Canada is a Cree word meaning, “Those who will come from far away to collect government cheques.” I have to say, the Indians really had us pegged from the start.

He played the President in National Treasure, he was in Thirteen Days, and played someone or another in the newest Star Trek movie, which, I have to say, is a darn good flick.

He was born in Quebec to a French mother and a father who was born in British Columbia, meaning, he probably likes to get high and then throw temper tantrums. Cuz west coasters are stoners and the French have nasty tempers. Nasty tempers, but beautiful hair. It all makes sense.

I can’t think of anything else to tell you about this guy, because I don’t really know anything else about him. Hmmmm, let’s see – he was also in Firehouse Dog and Capote, and I believe he started out his acting career in the movie First Blood with that stuttering half-wit Sylvester Stallone.

That’s all from memory, so I might have a few things screwed up, like the First Blood info, but since I refuse to Google his name up, or check any sources to verify this information, this is all you are going to get.

whats-his-face

If there was ever a better example of a Hollyweird star that you see all the time in movies but yet never remember the poor clods name, I can’t think of it. This cat has been in 158 movies and TV shows over his illustrious career, been professionally acting for the better part of 40 years, and has been nominated for 4 Golden Globes, yet whenever I see him on screen, the only thing I can think to say is, “Hey, there’s that guy with the face.”

While it can be argued whether he is an A or a B actor, the one thing that is beyond argument is that I look fantastic in my snug cotton/poly-blend sweater I bought Saturday at The Bay. What does that have to do with this segment? Not an awful lot really, I just thought I’d give you a kickin’ visual that you can take with you all week.

The reason I’m posting this guy is because TLDG and I watched the movie Screamers II last night and he was in it. Neither TLDG or I could remember his name, but Screamers II was a movie we’ll never forget. And not in a good way. Watching that movie was slow torture, like being strapped to a board while a pack of cats blow nose air from their nostrils right onto your face.

Not that I have given you any information about this guy, but what I have given you may have been too much. I’m generous to a fault, just ask the sperm bank, they’ll confirm that for you.
