Wow, is he 60 already? Amazing. Well, the Lifetime Channel did their part. Yesterday, they ran reruns of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES featuring Ironside as a malevolent hitman! Just don't ask me how I was watching that channel...

Please do me a favor, next time you discuss the Ironside, you have to spend a whole week discussing his character from "V". Ham Tyler, death machine.

And then also, realize that miner from Total Recall was Ham's buddy from "V".

Anon,

Ah yes, worry not– Ham Tyler will one day receive his due on this site.

And Burly Miner (Mickey Jones) is a lot more than just Ham's buddy– he's Michael Ironside's real-life best friend (and best man at his wedding), and they've acted together in 6 films (and 5 eps of V).

J.D.,

Wow, I may have to check out those episodes of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES at some point. I'd say it wasn't my highest priority, but I've been watching off-the-beaten-path episodes of THE HITCHHIKER and shit like SAVE ME, so why not? Maybe they'll make it onto Ironside Week VII or something.
