We have a very good friend who is a major 24 fan. She has a friend who caddies in North Carolina. Her phone rings and Gregory Itzin, who's golfing in NC, says to her "This is President Logan." She flips completely out! She told him "We love to hate you so much!," to which he replied, "Then I'm doing my job."

Thought it was cool that this happened to such a close friend of ours!

After his run on 24, Gregory Itzin is going to get alot more high profile work. He was great and I loved hating him too. Posted Image

He was also funny in Friends, as Mike's father. I just watched the Friends DVDs and almost didn't realize who he was with the facial hair. It wasn't until I saw the name that I realised who it was Posted Image

I didn't know that was him. Now I recall when Phoebe punches him in the stomach Posted Image Could someone post a screencap?

The head-tilty-jaw-thing is kind of annoying, but he was certainly good as President Logan.

Gregory Itzin (President Logan from "24") should get a show with Harry Groener (Mayor Wilkins from "Buffy") where they play amusingly unlikeable brothers. Posted Image

If you pull up his name on IMDB, he's got quite an extensive filmography.

Five replies and no asked so I guess I am missing something obvious, but please do answer: Why did this gentleman call her?

Because his caddy asked if he would call a friend who was a big fan, and he was a good sport about it.
