When Will I Ever Learn?

not to make bets against Ben. I always lose.

Tonight we were talking about Vince Vaughn and when did he become a well-known celebrity? We were watching him in the 2nd Jurassic Park movie, and I remember seeing it for the first time and I didn't know who he was. Now he is a big star. So I said I didn't think I really knew who he was until after Dodgeball, I think. Ben disagreed and said his big break was that Domestic Disturbance movie with John Travolta. I said, that wasn't Vince Vaughn, that was that other little known celebrity who is much shorter than Vince Vaughn and has bright blue eyes and blondish grayish hair. He looks a lot like Vince Vaughn, but with a more evil look about him. We googled it, turns out I was wrong and now I owe Ben a massage as soon as Jackson goes to bed...MAN!

So now I am so annoyed at myself. What is the name of the guy I was thinking of and what movies has he been in?! Help me out people, do you know who I am talking about? He is not a major household celebrity name, but maybe if you know who I am talking about you can remind me of another movie he has done.

I'm off to get out the massage table...

(and, yes, we have a massage table. It was my birthday present a few years ago.)

Actor/Producter/Director, Peter Billingsley? Who happens to be Vince Vaughn's best friend in the world and has bright blue eyes and blond hair.. He's been in, and produced a few movies with Vince.

Watch Swingers. To me, that was his break out. But yeah, major recognition didn't come until Dodgeball.

Why is that TMI? Get your mind out of the gutter, Katy!!

Ok, so I googled Peter Billinglsey, and no, its not him I was thinking of, but I did find out that Peter Billinglsey is the guy who played Raphie in the Christmas Story ("You'll shoot your eye out!" haha - love that movie) Sidenote: Man, Ralphie grew up to be YUMMY! ;)

Colleen said...

Nope, not Brian Dennehy. I know who that is and he is a little older than the guy I am thinking of, and has a bigger build. Thanks tho!

Ok so I have NO idea who you're talking about! Are you thinking of Josh Duhamel, the guy from Transformers and he was also on a tv series called Las Vegas (loved that show, SO MAD that they cancelled it without following up on the story!!) that's the only person I can think of! Why don't you google the movie you think you saw this dude in and find out who he is!?! PS - I love that you have a table.... do you need me to show you some moves :) I am a pro you know :)
