Special 6/6/6: My brother is the AntiChrist!

As you all know, today is a big day. Today is the day Satan is supposed to rule the Earth, daemons come out of darkness, and the work of the devil will be complete.
Today is June 6th, 2006, today is 6/6/6.

Today is also the day "The Omen", the remake of the great horror movie from the 70s, is released. The Omen feature Julia Stiles, Liev Shreiber , and Pete Postlethwaite, the greatest character actor ever.
He was Kobayashi in The Usual Suspects, he was the father in Romeo+Juliet, he was the hunter in Jurassic Park 2, he was one of the prisonner in Alien3. I noticed him for the first time when I happened to watch Alien3, Jurassic Park 2 and the Usual Suspects on the same, quiet day - what a coincidence, will you tell me.

Back to the Omen. The film is the story of Damien, played by Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick, a young kid who is thought to be the reincarnation of Satan himself, the Antichrist. You can believe my surprise when I saw for the first time the picture of the actor playing Damien, and who is... the clone of my brother, David. But a picture tells more than a thousand words, so take a look here:

Scary right? Now I got to figure out why a Germano-polish Jew looks so much like an Irish-american.
No explanation? It must be the work of the Devil...

hé ! I like Pete Postlethwaite too and see him recently in "The Constant Garderner". He seems to be more and more well-known and used, doesn't he ?

I'm not so convinced as you of the resemblance. Do you have any photo of your brother at 6 ?
