Tesco's balloon ad, who's the actor?

  bof:) 12:49 24 May 09

Hi all, has anyone (apart from myself) noticed a passing likeness between the actor in the Tesco's hotair balloon advert and the actor from The Thin Blue Line (CID) tv program and the film The Full Monty ?

Is he the same actor in all three ?

If so what is his name?

Mark Addy - he was in The Full Monty.

Hi all, thank you for that Pine Man, I've looked Mark Addy up and he was also in the Thin Blue Line tv series. See here,

If it's Mark Addy he's put a few pounds on!

On a similar theme, I saw the brief interview with Nigel Mansell just before the start of the Monaco Grand Prix today and was amazed at his likeness to Robert Maxwell (including the cap!)

Even more amazing was the fact that the interview was conducted in front of the harbour filled, of course, with dozens of yachts.

By the way, the actress in the advert is Fay Ripley.
