    It’s the only way to travel through space. In a giant Peter Falk face.

    Inside the mind of Lorne Greene: Karl Malden and Marsha Mason! Let’s get cosmically middle aged!

    Reminds me of the time I went to sleep in the road and woke up with a huge tyre-track running right up the middle of my face. I went to the psychiatrist for help, but he said: ‘there’s nothing medicine can do you for. I’m afraid YOU’RE A CYCLEPATH.’

    I thang you.

    That hair…must count every strand…one…two…three…four…

    It’s 264 hairs. (And one seriously dedicated artist.)

    And what, no gags about splitting headaches?

    So am I the only one who saw John Colicos, the original Baltar?

  12. Phil Says:

    I guess you were, Carolyn B. (Similarly, I may be the only one who saw Freddie ‘Parrot Face’ Davies –

  13. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Actually, he looks quite ‘ON centre’.

  14. sal Says:

    i don’t know if i’m the first to notice, but the face is federico fellini’s

  15. Phil Says:

    The many faces of Federico Fellini:

    I see your point, sal, but I’ll stick with Freddie Davies. Or John Colicos.

  16. GSS noob Says:

    I’m with Carolyn B: that’s clearly John Colicos.

    THX is correct that he contains Malden and Mason, though.
