    I'm about 50/50 on whether I''m seeing things, and leaning towards the Snuffleupagus side, but I was just watching a video journal for the upcoming WATCHMEN film and about 1 minute into it as the dude mentioned soviets I saw the camera pan past a guy who looked an awful lot like Mr Chalk. Maybe its just the Chekov association and a looky-likey but there was certainly an uncanny resemblance, especially in that uniform. Am I going insane?

    DEFINITELY looks like "Colonel Chekov" to me.
    Except he looks like an American Officer this time, rather then Russian.

    Saw Mr. Chalk in an episode of MacGyver the other day. He plays a cop on vice squad. Episode is about 20 years old now. Still kinda seeing him in it. Easy to recognize the voice.

    Yeah the guy in the video does look like good old Garry Chalk

    I wouldn't be surprised.

    Chalk lives in Vancouver.
    Watchmen is filmed in Vancouver.

    Easy enough to believe that they'd cast extras and minor roles with locals if possible.

    Glad I wasn't the only guy who recognized his voice and his face. That rocks. :D

    It is him, and it's being discussed in the main Watchmen thread, starting here.

    EDIT: Gah! Just noticed the zombification. Where's that shotgun?
