So the other day at work, some dude with whom I occasionally work a service desk asked me if I ever watched the Inspector Lewis mysteries that sometimes play on PBS as part of the Masterpiece Theater series. I haven’t, so I had no idea about whom he was speaking when he informed me that there’s a guy on the show who looks just like me.

Man, I don’t know…I’m going to let you be the judge. I have to assume he means this blond guy, an actor named Laurence Fox.

And here’s a recent photo of me.

Honestly, I’m not seeing it. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that I look nothing at all like that guy apart from having blond hair and a long face.

Not to be a dick, but why do people even say dumb shit like this? If you want to compare me to somebody cool and good looking, like say, this guy, I’d be happy to accept that comparison, even though I know we look nothing alike. But don’t compare me to some pasty British dude with popped out ears and narrow eyes.

But you decide.

And oh yeah…

I’m a father, bitches!

My beautiful daughter Juliet was born October 1.

Best. TV watching buddy. Ever.
