  5. Holly Wells says:

    Pretty funny. Just one adjustment: Inskeep looks nothing like the Hoff. He does, however, look just like Matt Morrison from GLEE.

    Thanks Brad. You’re right. We got most of the images from the NPR site, but had to do some digging on others. We’ll remove it. Cheers, N
