Lately, I used to be looking at Season 2 of The White Lotus (for a minimum of the fourth time) and spotted a verrrrrrry acquainted actor within the first few episodes.

Along the enduring Tanya McQuoid (performed through Jennifer Coolidge) was once Greg Hunt, a dude with a beautiful recognizable face — however for the lifetime of me, I could not pinpoint the place I knew him from!

Input ye olde IMDb — I tracked down the actor’s identify, and voilà: It became out to be Jon Gries (aka Rico Dynamite from the 2004 youngster vintage Napoleon Dynamite!).
