Okay, that was just a joke because he is one of my favorite actors. He is definitely a good actor with a broad range of skills. But I have always thought it was amusing that he played similar characters in two different unrelated films.

In White Water Summer, he terrorizes a group of teenage boys on a rafting trip.

In River Wild, he terrorizes Meryl Streep and her family on a rafting trip.

I guess you could probably say that WWS was actor's training for RW, the latter film which included more famous actors.

Has anyone else seen these? I actually used to get them mixed up as the same film.

I saw white water summer. Good film. I remember the sly look in his eye after ditching the kids and then telling them "Now you are ready for devil's tooth.". Then he wound up at the bottom of the ravine.

he was also great in the Woodsman playing a sex offender and even Death sentance despite the film being way over the top, With it's unbelievable situations and ridiculous villains. Garrett Headlund was in it and has had a great career since.

Stir of Echos
was good also. He immersed himself in role of an average working guy making contact with the ghost of the girl and seeking to find the truth.
