Separated at nerd

So I just realized the guy from The Last Starfighter isn't the same actor who played young Clark Kent in Superman, something I've thought all my life. Anybody else labor under that delusion?

Nobody is dorky enough to have thought about it in the first place?

Oh, ok.

Yes, but Lance Guest did play Shawn Brody in "Jaws the Revenge." My BFF Mitchell Anderson, who owns the restaurant Metrofresh in Midtown, played Mike Brody who is eaten at the beginning of the film.

I did think it was the same guy too.. I am sure it's because you told me so. :)

Yes, I was absolutely operating under the delusion that Lance Guest -- who appeared in The Last Starfighter, St. Elsewhere and Halloween II -- also portrayed young Clark Kent in Superman. Very, very strange.
