Doug Hutchison is pretty much assured of being a popular guest on the genre convention circuit from now on, based mostly on just two roles - he just returned tonight to 'Lost' as Dharma Initiative leader Horace Goodspeed, and he made two appearances on 'The X-Files' as liver-eating hybernationist Eugene Victor Tooms.

But even though roles played by the same actor are a popular basis for the Toobworld theories of "relateeveety", I'm not going to push that family angle. Instead, I'm going to suggest that Horace Goodspeed was related to a character who had a one-shot guest appearance on one of CBS' popular procedurals.

I'm thinking Goodspeed could have been an uncle or older cousin to the serial killer who used the alias of Professor Rothschild in the 'Criminal Minds' episode of "Masterpiece.

Both of them have basically the same physique; and although hair style is a choice, "Rothschild" may have chosen his in memory of a family member who disappeared some time before......

Just sayin', is all.....
