If you ever seen a Home Depot commercial and thought, "that it sounds like Ed Harris narrating"? You weren't hearing things. He Narrates for com's as well.
Overall Ed Harris is great at being bad but even better at acting good.
Here's a quick video where, I'm not sure if he is flipping out? Or just kidding around, maybe making a point? I don't know.
