Brotherhood: Capt. Jenek as a Rhode Island state rep

Jason Clarke, aka Captain Jenek, is fantastic as Tommy Caffee in Showtime series "Brotherhood." As with "FarScape," I didn't discover "Brotherhood" until I could get it on DVD.

Under approximately 54 pounds of prosthetic make-up and standing on platform shoes, Clarke delivered some of the best lines and despite his immobile face had some of the best reactions in his 4 episodes near the end of season 4. His menace: "I'll solve my own problems" sends chills down our spines, knowing that this is a man who solves problems by ripping babies out of women. His timing (educating Chiana on Scaran anatomy): "Yes, but they're on the inside" after she's kicked him where she thought his mevonks should be.

Maybe it's because Clarke was so scary as Jenek, that I see the same menace in Caffee, only it's buried deeper under 54 pounds of Irish Catholic guilt rather than prosthetic make-up.

Not only does Clarke play Jenek, he played Lechna (sp?) Aeryn's imaginary lover in "Prayer" the same episode he debuted as Jenek.

Gotta rewatch that episode. Won't recognize his face as Jenek, but I gotta see him as Lechna. Thanks!
