    Every time I see William Fichtner in a movie, I always think of a comment I read once that hes the "discount Kevin Bacon."

    Focus: What / who are the discount versions of other things?

    Alt Focus: What are the lesser known, but higher-quality versions of their better-known versions?

    BULLSHIT, Kevin Bacon is the discount William Fitchner, tho I suppose that depends on the movie. Footloose, you're right. Blackhawk Down, I'm right.

    FOCUS: It's funny, I've had these pictures saved in an old photobucket account from the last time this topic came up in another forum. But here's an easy one, Scarlett Johansson is the discount Charlize Theron.

    Brad Johnson is the discount Tom Berenger. If you ever watched Soldier of Fortune Inc. (good for what it was, until they stuntcasted Dennis Rodman) you get it.
