I did a double take when I scanned in this photo. I know it is supposed to be a photo of Bradley Whitford, but I just can’t wrap my head around it. I have perused hundreds of photos on the internet and none of them look anything like this photo. Is this what he looked like when he was much younger? Did he bring in a photo of someone else? Who knows? Michael knew him better than I did. Before his big break on the award winning TV series the West Wing (1999-2006), he was one of the many actors living in the Hollywood Hills, and trying to make it in Hollywood. His ex-wife and mother of his three children, Jane Kazmarek, had many more credits than Whitford, before  her breakout role in the TV series Malcolm in the Middle  (2000-2006).  It must have been an exciting and surreal time for these two actors.  Since they are now divorced, maybe it was like the fable of King Midas. Maybe it was all just too much.
