TV Thursday!


Yesterday I watched this week's Castle (Yes, on the DVR) and noticed that the kid from Kate & Ally was on tv again! Remember Chip? I think he was Ally's son. Anyways he played a possible suspect in Castle this week. Earlier this season, he played a killer on The Mentalist. So when I saw him in Castle yesterday, I had to laugh. Out loud. I then had to pause the tv to explain why I laughed to my family...lol. But remembered going crazy trying to place him when he was on The Mentalist.

I have this thing with TV faces. Very often, I find myself watching a tv show or movie and I get this feeling that I know an actor from something. Does this happen to any of you? And then it drives me crazy until I'm able to look it up on the internet and find what I know them from.

Like on Castle...there was a woman playing a ghostwriter and she looked soooo familiar. Her lips, specifically...lol...they're just shaped a little weird. Anyway, she turned out to be the senator's wife who was kidnapped on this show a few years ago called Vanished. IMDB.com answered for me! I love IMDB. It's super helpful.

It's weird that the show Vanished popped up again too because a few weeks ago I saw the film Adventureland. Really good move, by the way. But there's a girl in the film who works at the park, and I knew I knew her from somewhere! It drove me nuts through the whole movie and as soon as I got home, I checked IMDB and she played the senator's daughter in the same show! Weird.

Am I the only one this happens to? Do any of you love IMDB like I do?

I've never heard of that show. Sounds like a good one, though.
