The Kidnapped cast has been in other things, some of them impressive (Timothy Hutton in Ordinary People, Jeremy Sisto in Six Feet Under, Mykelti Williamson in Forrest Gump, Dana Delany in China Beach and Delroy Lindo in Ransom) others, um, not so much (Doug Hutchison in Bait, Carmen Ejogo in Metro).

Anyway, if there's any Kidnapped cast member who's in another role that's worth talking about, award-caliber or not, them chat about them here, to your heart's content.

Did any other "Oz" fans out there watch this one? I fully yelled "Chico!" when Otto Sanchez came on the screen (as one of the kidnapper dudes). And then I yelled "Irish Hack!" at Robert Clohessy (another kidnapper dude).
And I also had a pair of "maybe" sightings of "Rescue Me" cast members. The young, blond kidnapping victim looked like the girl who plays Tommy's daughter...and I also thought I saw the guy who plays Tommy's AA-buddy cousin-who-used-to-be-a-priest. No confirmation on IMBD, so I might be way off.

I couldn't figure out where I knew Jeremy Sisto from, so I finally had to look him up on imdb. He was Suicide Kings and Clueless (Which just happen to be two of my favourite movies!).

No lies, I yelled out "Elton!" as soon as I placed his face.

Me! Me! Guerra, Murphy, AND Agent Taylor (aka Cousin Mick from Rescue Me). And, yes, I think that was Tommy's daughter as the other kidnap victim.

There is also a shot of Terry Kinney in the previews for next week. Is this a coincidence?

Thanks for the back-up Eliot. Did anyone watch Six Degrees? Again with Robert Clohessy AND Cousin Mick from Rescue Me.

And I love Jeremy Sisto from Six Feet Under and had no idea he was in Clueless. I had never seen Clueless until a few weeks ago - that movie is filled with people who are doing good stuff now. And some other people who are doing...umm, stuff now.

I wasn't going to watch again next week, but if there's Terry Kinney, I might have to check that out.

It was nice to see Audra McDonald, who is a major Broadway star. I can't imagine that they would have bothered to get her for just the very small role she has had so far (as Virgil's wife/girlfriend?) so perhaps there is more of a storyline for her and Virgil down the line.

No kidding....I spent a half hour and then it came to me...Billy! I kept expecting a weird scene with his sister any minute.

I think she was in the credits with the regular cast and not the guest stars. If she is regular cast, I can't imagine that she would sign up without the promise of a meaty role. I can't wait to see how that develops. She also has been on television in the short lived "Mr. Sterling" as a congressman's Chief of Staff (I think. It has been awhile).

Jeremy Sisto also played Jesus in a TV mini. Has he really, um, aged quite a bit since the end of SFU or did he just pretty down for this role?

Ricky Jay has been in a lot of wonderful stuff. He's been a Mamet regular: House of Games and The Spanish Prisoner, both good but Games was better.
I will always remember him in the X-Files, The Great Maleeni? He played a dual role and was terrific: understated, snide, vaguely mocking and he could make his neck do a 360! You know he knows more than everyone else in the room, he just doesn't let on.

James Urbaniak, the Accountant, is the reason I'm watching this. He's currently the voice of Dr. Venture, Jonas Jr., Phantom Limb and several other characters on "The Venture Bros." and I've seen him in "American Splendor", "Henry Fool", "Plain Dirty", and "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind". I believe he's been on Law & Order and Sex in the City, but I'd have to 2x check the imdb for that. He's always excellent, and it'll be fun to see him as the geeky but deadly assassin.

I really like him, too. So calm and collected, and you really believe him in this role.

I'd like to know where the kidnapper guys have been before. Especially the Hispanic guy, cos he's really fascinating. Anyone catch his name?

James said you'll see more and more of the accountant and episode 9 will be his big one, so hopefully it stays on at least that long.

It's all about the X-Files connections for me : Ricky Jay played The Amazing Maleeni and Doug Hutchison the scariest liver-eating mutant villain that ever came out of the X-Files. The whole time I was watching him in his scenes I want to yell out "Tooms!"

[/quote]Jeremy Sisto also played Jesus in a TV mini. Has he really, um, aged quite a bit since the end of SFU or did he just pretty down for this role?[quote]

Well, we've all aged a good bit since 6 Feet Under *began*, haven't we? And that transition from still-boyish (or girlish) 20-something to the early thirties changes some people more than others.

I saw Sisto in a Broadway show in the spring as a boorish, mid-30s lout and in the show he looked older and heavier and kind of scruffy. But then I ran into him in person about a month later, and he looked pretty fit and pretty good. So who knows? Maybe he changes his appearance a bit for a each role. He has an interesting face, not a "pretty" face, really (though he was a little on the pretty side when he was younger), which is better for someone who wants to play interesting roles, I think -- he can skew handsome or seedy or whatever; and I think we saw a lot of that in SFU as Billy went through different phases, didn't we -- lots of changes in appearance and weight. I don't know . . . to me he just looks more like his dad recently (again, something that happens to a lot of guys as they pass 30), but if you're not familiar with his father's music, that probably isn't relevant to you.

I'm just glad to see someone as talented and offbeat as Sisto on broadcast instead of just cable. Same goes for his old TV sis, Rachel Griffiths.

Oh, and since you mention it, I think the Jesus miniseries was the first thing I really saw him do that I recall. I was many years late in seeing Clueless, for some reason.

To me, Timothy Hutton will forever be Archie Goodwin, Nero Wolfe's right hand man.

He was so perfect in that role in the mini-series (occaisionally aired on A&E, mostly on the Biography channel). Whenever I read the Nero Wolfe stories I hear his voice for the narration.

Love him in this shady-dealings-father role too!

Well, yeah, it's been awhile since the beginning of SFU, but I meant that I thought he looked drastically different from the end of SFU. Your point about his Broadway work did make me think that Sisto is one of those actors who does manage to look drastically different for each role. I mean, he did Caesar and SFU at the same time and looked distinct in each role.

Oh, how I love Anthony Rapp in this. Pure love. I have never seen him in a role like this, and it only further solidifies my theory that the best creepy-ass bad guys in movies/on tv are usually really nice offscreen.

Seeing Anthony Rapp in this show just reminded me of how sickly and drawn he looked in the movie version of Rent. I like him here as a babbling psycho, and as someone who seems to have had three square meals for the last few months.

I was pleasantly surprised to recognize the sniper, Mr. Green, as a lieutenant on "The Wire" last night. Looks like he'll be on regularly this season. I love that show but it breaks my heart every time I watch it.

I first saw Linus Roache 12 years ago in the movie, "Priest".
