Hey hey, who needs a name? Well, the Machine does, for one thing, but also, how about this guy?
The press release says his name is Murphy. So… that would be Officer Murphy? He’s wearing a uniform to do what looks like his usual job, so I’m thinking yes. And we really need either a first name or a title (OR BOTH!), because, well, tumblr is a pain. How many millions of Murphys will I find if there’s just the one name to search?
Take a look at the lovely actor who played the role, John Douglas Thompson.
He’s won an Obie! (Off-Broadway Theatre Award) He was born in England to Jamaican parents, he grew up in Montreal, and he worked as a traveling salesman in New England.
And then he decided to try acting! And he’s done pretty well!
So… Officer Murphy, yes? Hi, Officer Murphy! Hail, Officer Murphy, the man who gave the Machine a belief system! (And then she forgot it, but she remembered it again, so that all worked out.)
