That guy?

I'm pretty good at recognizing actors when I see them in other roles. I guess I have to give most of the credit here to IMDb, because mostly I just go "hey that guy looks familiar" and then jump on IMDb to figure out where I know him/her from. There are very few times when I completely do not recognize an actor in another role. But this one blew my mind:

The main character from The Walking Dead, Sheriff Rick Grimes...

... is the same man who played the guy with the cue-cards who was in love with Kiera Knightly in Love, Actually.

I did not realize that was him until someone pointed it out to me.

Was that someone me? Because the very first commercial for The Walking Dead I saw made me sit straight up and go "Love, Actually guy!!! Was that a southern accent?!?! Wft/Yay!!!"

Kerry didn't notice so fast because he was distracted by the pretty girl from Prison Break.

Serendipity? Dish is giving me a free preview of AMC this month so I can watch TWD realtime instead of online or in 678 weeks when it finally is released on DVD. Sigh.

I think I read it on Pajiba. I recognized Prison Break girl right away, though. And, in my defense, I didn't watch the first season of TWD, so I'm a year behind everyone else in realizing that Rick=Cue Cards.
