Duh, what was I thinking. He had a brother in Miracle Run, a cable movie. (And they looked completely different, I never bought the idea that they were siblings).

Right. I overlooked that sibling relationship because I try to overlook NYE. I have both NYE and TAM on disc but for some reason I am never choosing them to watch when I need another dose of Zacron.
