One of Rory's Yale professors, Professor Bell, played by George Anthony Bell, (seen for example in episode 5.10 But Not As Cute As a Pushkin), is seen later as a Stars Hollow resident (7.09 Knit People Knit), and again as a court officer (7.12 To Whom It May Concern). He is listed in the credits for both the Season 7 episodes as Professor Bell, though he CLEARLY does not play Professor Bell. See more »
