We'd already forgotten who Thomas Jane is. Sure, we could have IMDB'd him, but we saw something shiny and lost interest in his career. But then we came across this very helpful AP headline on Yahoo News: "Thomas Jane Plays 'The Punisher'"

Our curiousity was piqued enough to read the item and learn a little bit about the actor. He found the training regiment he had to undergo in preparation for the role to be a little unsavory. "I had a case of beer and some Krispy Kreme doughnuts waiting in my trailer the day we wrapped," Jane said.

If the all-carb diet doesn't work out for him, maybe he'll stretch a little and be up for playing a different kind of hero in The Kirstie Allie Story.
