i heard somewhere that the actor was named tom nuthall, actually.
- Tom Nuttall is Rippy's character on Deadwood, so I'm assuming this was meant as a joke. If that is the case, please do not use talk pages for such purposes, thanks. --From Andoria with Love 07:18, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
- erm, it was not a joke.
- Ahh, I see, but you simply mistook what he meant. He was actually referring to the actor who played Tom (that being Leon Rippy), but apparently didn't know the guy's name, so referred to him as Tom. This happens often in everyday speak; people can't think of an actor's name so they call him or her by their character's name. And I wasn't being a wiseguy, it just seemed like you were trying to make a joke, which isn't what these talk pages are for. Now that you've explained yourself, all is well in the land of Oz. :P --From Andoria with Love 07:41, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
Wasn't he in another episode of TNG, where he played a Lt. who argued with Geordi who should've been in command? I think it was the episode with the weapons seller planet.--KrossTransmit on Holonet? 08:34, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
