As part of my grieving process over the death of Paul Walker1 who was in the Fast & the Furious franchise, I was researching his life. It surprised me that he was also in Pleasantville since it is one of my favorite movies and I had not connected the actor to both films (and would never have recognized him in a million years).
This got me to thinking about the actors I had noticed as common between BtVS (another of my favorite shows) and Pleasantville, since I had already spotted 3 of them.
- Danny Strong, plays 'Jukebox Boy' in Pleasantville and Jonathan Levinson in BtVS.
- Marc Blucas, plays an unnamed youth in the Pleasantville High School basketball team and Riley Finn in BtVS.
- Nancy Lenehan, plays the mother of a girl who's tongue turns an 'odd color' in Pleasantville as well as Pat in Dead Man's Party.
Are there any I missed?
- Conclusion: He was a really nice guy and is a loss to the world. My heart goes out to his loved ones, as well as the many people he might have helped through his (considerable) generosity.
