AS SEEN ON TV: FAUX POES

We've got an extra "As Seen On TV" for today, but it has nothing to do with the Presidency......

Today marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Edgar Allen Poe. So far, I haven't found any indication he was actually portrayed on TV, but in "A Tale Of Poes And Fire", a 'Gilmore Girls' episode, a Poe Society met at the Inn. And when that caught fire, their celebration of the author moved on to Lorelei's house.

Here are a couple of frame grabs from that episode:

Edgar Allan Poe IV, a supposed descendant of the author, played Poe in an episode of Sabrina, The Teen-Age Witch (as well as in the movie Monkeybone). The Gothic master was also played by Michael Sarrazin for an episode ("The Raven") of Mentors.
