Ridiculous question: Doppelganger or actor? Who is the guy in this Scott Brown campaign ad?!

I randomly saw this campaign ad for Scott Brown in which he bonds with fishermen, and the older guy briefly appearing at around 19 seconds who says "they're totally killing us" looks super familiar to me.

I'm 85% sure I've seen either him or his identical twin in a Law and Order SVU episode. I think he was a suspect, or maybe just a witness.

It could have been a vanilla L&O episode, but I think it was SVU. I don't watch the other variants, so it was one of those two.

Does this guy's mug ring a bell for anyone else? Can anyone ID the actor I'm thinking of?

He looks to me like Dan Lauria, who played the father on "The Wonder Years", and also guest starred in 2 episodes of "Law & Order: SVU" (as two different characters).

Can't say it's actually him (Google turned up nothing, but I only spent 30 seconds searching), but if not, the resemblence is uncanny.

Nice - yeah, that's the guy I was thinking of. Now that I see him, it doesn't quite look like him, but a pretty strong resemblance.

He reminds me more of John Capodice.
