Last night, I dreamed I was in some south-of-the-border area at a giant Spring Break type foofaraw. There was overdrinking aplenty; there was some kind of human bowling alley; there was thumping music and chanting crowds; there was chocolate sauce on spigots. It was a party...but not my kind of scene. All of this, aside from the chocolate, I would find obnoxious IRL, and I was pretty uncomfortable in my dream as well.

Add to this noisome mix a forty-something beach bum slimebag who's trying to liquor/chat up an obviously underage girl in my vicinity, and I awoke feeling unhappy. Naturally.

THEN I realized I didn't invent this greaseball out of imaginary whole-cloth. Instead I'd imported him from some movie/show or other, and I can't, for the life of me, remember which.

I bring the case to you. It would make me feel better if I could remember where I found him...essentially so that I could put him back.

Here's what I remember:

Genre: Crime-ish
--People were hiding/on the run. This character produces a gun. (?)
--He might have been a good guy at some point. Some sort of betrayal.
--There might have been special skills involved (thievery, espionage)
--He 'gets away' with a briefcase of money? I'm a little hazy on this.

Setting: Someplace tropical. Hot at the very least.
--I remember, very distinctly, a tropical shirt on this character.

Physical Characteristics: Short. Caucasian. Dark/Sandy haired.
--I think he might have had uneven teeth.
--The hair was combed over and then held down with some product.
--Maybe large, reflective sunglasses.(?)
--Very evil/smug smile


Things you can rule out:
--I don't watch horror movies.
--Particularly gory video games.

--It's not Ricky Gervais. (Although he looks a lot like him.)
Every third time I try to picture him, I get Ricky.

Do you play video games? my first thought was a guy out of Resident Evil 5? Who's name I can't remember but he fits the description.

I do, but not ones like R.E.5. Nice try, though.

If it wasn't for the blond hair, sunglasses and shirt, I would also say Steve Buscemi (Mr Pink) in Resevoir Dogs. He's slimey and runs around with a briefcase.

Steve's too thin...and maybe too young.

A for effort, but you're 0-2.

there is a briefcase in pulp fiction and travolta had slicked back hair.

For the three of you who were wondering, some of the answers on this thread got my brain moving in the right direction. "Crime-ish" turned out to be Sci-Fi.


It was Tom McBeath, better known as Colonel Maybourne from the Stargate SG-1 series.



For those of you who are unfamiliar with the character, he was a a devious and a betrayer. Always prone to pull a gun when you thought he could be trusted. The adjectives "slimy" and "smug" both come to mind... and he hid out for a while (convicted of treason) in tropical locales.

You can see from the pic where watching him try to pick up a coed would be disturbing.
