We went the whole movie saying "Who is he?", regarding the actor who plays Reed Richards. When we got back to a `net connection, IMDB gave us the answer. He also played Horatio Hornblower for the A&E series.
Update: He also part of the regular cast on the half-season TV show "Century City", which I rather enjoyed, and thus, of course, bombed in the ratings. Interestingly, in that show, he played an USian Latino, in FF he was a generic USian, in the Hornblowers he was English, and yet he is actually a native (and native speaker) Welsh.
