Friday marks the final tribute to Ron Silver's gallery of real world figures "As Seen On TV", and for this last one we have something a little bit different.....

"Master Spy: The Robert Hanssen Story" detailed how FBI agent Hanssen sold out his country and put the lives of many working undercover in danger. Silver played Hanssen's boss in the Bureau, Mike Fine, and he's seen here telling Hanssen that he has to play down his intelligence if he wants to get ahead in the organization. The thing is... Mike Fine didn't really exist. Instead, he's an amalgam of several real life people, but mainly he is David Majors, who actually was Hanssen's boss.

In order to prepare for the role, Ron Silver met with Majors as seen in this publicity photo: BCnU!
