Default What are the odds?!

I was watching the episode "Babel" yesterday morning before heading over to do my volunteer work at the Democratic Headquarters in Santa Monica. Anyway, near the end of the night, this dude came in who I knew I must have seen somewhere on television. His name was Jack Kehler, and he was someone I remember being in Men in Black II. He was the pizza owner who gets cut in half by the main villian. Anyway, when I looked up his IMBd profile, I noticed that he was in an episode of Deep Space Nine, and guess which one it was? "Babel"! lol! He played the freight captain Jaheel! Small world, huh? lol

Heh, small world... living outside the US, the closest I get to that kind of encounter is seeing the actors at conventions, which isn't the same really.

Cool! Our only local celebrities are Gene Siskel and Andy Rooney, so it must be fun to live in CA.

I can probably claim a measure of patriotic pride at the fact that Karl Urban, the new Dr McCoy, is a fellow New Zealander

But to answer Quark's original question, the odds are 1:300,429.9
