I never knew that guy was also that guy!

Was watching This is England the other night and I was trying to place where I'd seen the actor who plays Woody (Joe Gilgun)

Turns out he was Eli Dingle in Emmerdale.

But that's not where I knew him from as I never watch it. He was also Cassidy in Preacher!

(Apparently also in Misfits but I never watched that either)

 

Edit @JohnC sorry, I hid that other post as for some reason it added all the pics several times. For context, you're replying to this one :)

I was floored today to discover that the guy who plays Master Chief in the Halo TV series, Pablo Schreiber, was Nick Sobotka in the Wire. There was a Guardian interview with him today where the sub-heading referred to him being in the Wire, and I assumed he'd played a random cop or heavy or similar. I had no idea he was Nicky, that's blown my mind a bit.

 

Ha, I had a similar Pablo Schreiber moment, only for me it was realizing that he was Mad Sweeney on American Gods

Here's a nice video compilation of actors who appear in different roles throughout the James Bond series. There are the obvious ones (Maud Adams, Joe Don Baker) but also a lot of minor roles. I didn't know that two actresses from the Connery films turn up at the gambling tables in Casino Royale!

I watched The Game (1997) today. Michael Douglas’ dad, who appears in the flashback scenes that looks like the credits from Succession and who commits suicide by jumping off the roof of his mansion, landing in a bloody mess in front of the young Douglas, is played by Charles Martinet. That guy loves jumping.

A little bit OTT, but I'm watching Ex Machine right now and just realised some of the locations filmed from Oscar Isaac's house is a home that was featured on Carline Quentin's World's Most Exrraordinary Homes show in Norway.  It really is spectacular.

I think I mentioned this in the thread for one of the two films, but the tropical island villa in the shootout at the end of Commando is the same house as where the shootout with Maitland and his goons happens at the end of Beverley Hills Cop. The house actually used to belong to silent movie actor Harold Lloyd.

Cant be bothered with screenshots, but was rewatching Casino Royale last night and the beautiful, very expensive villa on the sea where the film ends, is the same place that some high end negotiating takes place in the latest season of Succession.

 

Also the actor who plays Mike from Breaking Bad is a much younger cop in Gremlins!

Oi! This isn't the "I never knew that location was also that location" thread! :quote:

 

 

 

 

But the one that always sticks in my mind is a Guillermo del Toro example, like @Mikes: one hallway in Prague was used as a set for asylums in both Amadeus and Hellboy. (IIRC del Toro points it out on his Hellboy DVD commentary.)
