Yeah, definitely one of the top "hey, it's that guy" character actors. I first saw him in My Cousin Vinny, which was classic, but the first thing I think of with him is his fine work as Peter's boss on White Collar.
It was always good to see his name in the credits of a show, and it's sad that that won't happen anymore. RIP.
I think the island itself moves. Through space and time. That's why sometimes it is noticed by an arctic research station, and why it can pick up Nigerian planes, and drop off polar bears in Tunisia...it just kinda slips around in time/space.
