I remember that show. Good times.

This might sound strange (especially since I have no idea what her name is), but I just saw the woman who played "Katherine" in the Eric Kessler segment on a commercial for Physician's Mutual dental insurance. I saw her months earlier on a different commercial for the same product, but had forgotten to post about it. She looks nearly identical to what she did back then--she hardly looks like she's aged at all.

On the CW Toddy segment. Not sure if anyone else remembers it but she was the older black woman who shot for standing up to the drug dealers who had taken over her neighborhood. Anyway, one of the guys who terrorized/taunted her was played by comedian Kevin Hart.

Not to be rude, but are you sure it wasn't just a lookalike? I think Kevin Hart is too young to have played one of those guys because he was only born in 1980 and the segment was filmed in the early 1990s. Most of those guys look like they were late teens or well into their twenties.

Strictly speculation on my part, because at this point I have no way of knowing for sure, but a guy who looks AND sounds A LOT like the guy who played Paul Allen in the Eugene Bailey segment was a contestant on the October 14th, 1991 airing of "The Price Is Right." The guy on TPIR was named Ernest (I don't remember his last name). If anybody knows either way, I'd be very much interested in knowing.

Allen Haff from Auction Hunters played the older brother of Nick the kidnapped victim of Jesse James Hollywood. He only appears in one segment arguing with Hollywood inside of his car and then stepping out but it's definitely him, couldn't figure out why they didn't credit people until I found the explanantion most of these people don't have SAG cards here, makes total sense! I know there's more I've seen but I never post here, can't believe how many people have showed up as all I ever recognized was the Japanese guy from Lost as he was friends of that family, Henry Rollins as himself and McCaughnehey or however you spell the dudes name way to lazy to look it up

I noticed that too Meg, lol! You're right she looks like just like she did in the segment. I was just waiting for there to be a scene in the commercial where she is sitting at a fancy restaurant with Eric Kessler.

Yes! I'm just glad someone could share in the novelty--I told my fiance about it and he just kind of looked at me.

I'll leave it to both of you to instantaneously recognize the actress. That segment has stuck with me throughout the years, but my focus was always on the "talents" of con man Kohler/Kessler. They certainly found the right actor for the reenactment.

Wasn't the victim portrayed as being 50-60 circa 1990? The actress in question must have aged well!

Does anyone else think the actor they got to play Kessler looked like a thin version of Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy's?

Yes, it was VERY surprising. It looked like she could've just walked off the UM set!

In my head, I read this in the narrator's voice from the commercials. And yes, I agree he did look a lot like Davey T.

Was very surprised to see "Lupita" from the Spanish Lotto segment on a rerun of Law & Order today, but it was her!

I found out from the DVD commentary track on the Rainboy segment that the actress playing the woman who ran the pizzeria was named Eileen Galindo, who has quite a few credits to her name and has done voice acting work on "Dora the Explorer":
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0302153/

BTW, I wrote this in the original post of this thread...

Quote:
And for the rare chance to see two "Unsolved Mysteries" actors sharing a scene together on another show, watch "24": Season 7, Episode 16. There's a White House briefing scene where you can see both Ned Bellamy and Scott Lawrence (who played Adam Hecht's homeless friend, Tony) playing members of the President's cabinet.
Well, reading her filmography, it turns out that Eileen Galindo ALSO had a small role in "24": Season 7!
