    Can’t wait for AWAKE when it debuts soon (still no premiere date yet) but Kevin Weisman was so great on ALIAS as one of TV’s best sidekick Marshall Flinkman and a fan fave from the spy series.

    Is this the same actor that just played Fiona’s high school crush on a recent episode of Shameless?
