The Captain Vasily Borodin Day Thread (9/14)

Sept 14 is the birthday of the fantastic New Zealand actor Sam Neill. He once played opposite Sean Connery as Captain 2nd Rank Vasily Borodin, Executive Officer of the submarine called the Red October.

He had such humble ambitions. Move to Montana. Run a ranch. Have two wives. Have zero eyes. For as he said about Montana, “Where we’re going, we don’t need eyes.” Because it’s Big Sky country, you see. Who needs to see all that sky?

Sadly his dreams were cut short by an assassin and a submarine commanded by Stellan Skarsgård. A hunt for the Red October, if you will.

Due to his misfortunes, he had to scale down his plans to being a dinosaur rancher or something. With zero wives. Two eyes, though.

Also he turned into Odin just so he could show Stellan Skarsgård who was the real boss around Asgard.

You’ve hunted the Red October for the last time, Dr. Selvig!
