    I was watching Steel when I recognized him. I tuned in to see Natasha but Steph was da man. He looked like a kid in the movie but i continued watching because his blue cig. comercials are so cool. He reminds you of one of the guys you grew up with that wasn't that tall but made up for it in being being a bit brazen. I think Hollywood must notice those commercials too and they could you'se him more in Cagney type rolls. Looking forward to seeing him more often.
