I try to make it a point to learn at least one new thing every day. So here’s what I learned today:
Ted Levine, who played Captain Stottlemeyer on Monk, is the same actor who played serial killer “Buffalo Bill” in The Silence of the Lambs.
Say, Mr. Monk, are you about a size 14?
I’m beginning to suspect it was really Stottlemeyer who killed Trudy after all.
On a quasi-related note: The summer that Silence of the Lambs came out, a friend of mine used to insist that I looked just like the actor who played Buffalo Bill. So every time he saw me that summer, he’d point at me and shout, “Put the lotion in the fucking basket!”
He was kind of an obnoxious friend, actually.
