    • I was thinking the exact same thing, D-Day! Of course I think we just dated ourselves. Everyone needs to see Animal House.

  • I’m wondering in what capacity the character will serve. “Living legend of a lawyer” sounds promising; TGW’s courtroom drama is always good. However, if he’s acting as a political consultant, well… I’m not really here for Peter/his election. :|

  • He was Jack Dalton in MacGyver? No wonder he looked and sounded familiar when I first saw him on R&I!
