Buried within Sunday’s crazypants Revenge finale was a glorious Easter egg for devoted TV watchers: a newscast delivered by none other than Perd Hapley, a.k.a. Pawnee, Indiana’s most beloved TV personality.

Well, sort of. Perd, of course, isn’t real — he’s played by Jay Jackson, who’s delivered fictional news reports on series including Scandal, DexterThe MentalistThe Closer, and Body of Proof, not to mention movies like Battleship and Fast Five. Look at Jackson’s IMDb page, in fact, and you’ll find that he’s played a reporter nearly every single time he’s appeared onscreen. »
