A few innings into last night’s World Series game, the camera focused on Bruce Bochy for a few moments, and I realized he reminded me intensely of… somebody.┬áBut I couldn’t figure out who. It was a specific actor, I knew I’d seen him in a movie, it was on the tip of my brain. So I asked the Twitter Hive Mind for help.

Suggestions included, but were not limited to:

  • Young Tom Selleck
  • James Gammon in Major League
  • Jeff Bridges
  • J.K. Simmons
  • Billy Bob Thornton
  • Old Tom Selleck
  • William H. Macy
  • Tommy Chong
  • Tom Selleck
  • A young Wilford Brimley
  • Charles Bronson
  • Charles Bronson (2)
  • Everett McGill
  • Bruce McGill
  • Edward James Olmos
  • James Brolin
  • Billy Bob Thornton (2)
  • “half Dabney Coleman, half Burt Reynolds”
  • James Gammon in Major League (2)

Some of these were more accurate than others, but neither was the particular person I was trying to place. It was Derek Jacques [2] who finally nailed it:
