    Watched Jack Ryan on Amazon and seeing Bunk on it was like seeing an old friend.  I love Bunk, as well.  I love pretty much everything about that show...but Omar is just the best, to me.
    I love all of the ones you picked....Raylen was awesome but I would probably pick Boyd Crowder.
    You pick the heroes, except one.
    I pick the baddies, except one.

    Belding or whatever his name is in real life would hang out in college bars in oneonta ny all the time. I don’t know why but he was pretty much morbidly obese at the time and it was pathetic. Saw him a lot of times.
     
    Kelly is so cal seems a lot cooler 
  • F Me In The BrainF Me In The Brain this knows everybody from other commetsPosts: 14,238
    She wasn't looking her best but was still cool to see her.  Saw all sorts of folks there who were famous but it was a kind of special access place that we got into because of where one of our buddies worked so we kept as low a profile as we could.  
    When Mel Gibsons problems came out....wasn't much of a shock.  ;)


    I love some of the names people are sharing.
    So many great characters.
