Wow! It has been since March 2, 2011 since I posted a "Who The Heck I'm Iz?" deal.
So, I know y'all are bound to be parched for a chance to show just how knowledgeable of obscure things you are. In our last edition of this, the guy was Marjoe Gortner. Only Big Bad Jim even kinda halfway knew the guy. Hopefully y'all will do mo' better this time, because this guy is not as obscure. As far as I know he was never a Child Evangelist, either.
Actually, I started to do this post last night, but I got disrupted by a very troubling story out of Thibodeaux, Louisiana, which Big Bald Jim had posted on The Facebook®. So, I just quit and went on to bed. But, I woke up, and figured I'd go ahead on and do it now. You're welcome.
So, The Mrs. was looking at a film on The Netflix® last night. And, it was a pretty good film, too. It was somewhat hard to follow because about half the time they were talking Spanish, and the other half they were talking English. And, there were no sub-titles, neither. Fortunately, I am half-way fluent in Spanish due to the fact that I live in the 'hood surrounded by a bunch of Wetback neighbors...and I had a small manufacturing plant in TJ a few years back, and was forced to learn the native tongue.
So, I could follow the film (I think it was filmed in 1994, or '95...not sure) pretty good. Anyway, it was about these Irish nannies, and a Spanish revolution deal, and an Irish chick (who was hot btw) that fell in love with this Spaniard (who was married btw, but didn't seem to find anything wrong with having more than one woman on a string). And, I mean, I was focusing in hard on the dialogue so as to be able to really enjoy the film.
Then I saw this other guy in the film (not the cheatin' Spaniard...another guy). And I says to myself, "I know that guy! I know him. Who is that guy? Who is that guy? Dangit!!!!! Who is that guy?" Then it started to dawn upon me.
He was that guy that I saw in that film WAY back in the 60's when I was a kid (1967 to be exact). He is that guy that came to help out that guy that sang "MacArthur Park," and eventually ended up banging his wife. But, I was a little confused. I mean, I thought he was a Frenchman in that film from the 60's, come to help out the Brits...so I figured I was wrong, because here he is now as a Spaniard in the mid-90's!
So, I studied on it in my head...pondered all I could remember...did a quick GoobleSearch®, and discovered that I was right. It was the same guy...separated by about 30 years. But my GoobleSearch® turned up an interesting something. He ain't a Frenchman. Nor, is he a Spaniard. Nope. He's an I-talian!
And, I'll tell y'all, the old boy has held up well, too.
He will be 70 years old this coming November. This picture was taken in August of 2008, so I guess he was about 66.
Okay...who is this guy?
