That Guy In Saving Private Ryan Looks Really Familiar

Spoiler Alert - Saving Private Ryan

If you haven't seen "Saving Private Ryan", a minor plot point is referenced below. You've been warned.

Also, you are way, way behind and should check it out this weekend.

I re-watched the fantastic "Saving Private Ryan" last week. Several familiar actors grace the film in bit parts. Ted Danson from Cheers, Dennis Farina from Get Shorty, etc... There was one I recognized but just couldn't place.

In the scene with Private James Frederick Ryan (from Minnesota), I kept thinking, "Damn, he looks familiar."

Private James Frederick Ryan played by Nathan Fillion in Saving Private Ryan

When the scene was over, I still hadn't made the connection and put it out of my mind. At least, until the end of the movie. Since John Williams did the music, I left the end credits rolling to enjoy the score. I wasn't really paying attention, but the name "Nathan Fillion" jumped out at me.

A quick trip to IMDB confirmed it. In the future, Private James Frederick Ryan (from Minnesota) would go on to become one of my favorite Captains of all time.
