A while back I took this pic while watching an episode of Revolution, the most excellent TV show about an apocalyptic world sans electricity... In this scene, the Aaron Pittman character, who looks like a lot like the world's best selling writer, the amazing Stephen King, stands next to a poster of the great American storyteller.
In this scene, Pittman is hiding in some abandoned school, and the writers of the series pay an homage to King, as in the background we see him next to Papa Hemingway.
If you've ever seen and met the bearded King of the 90s, as I did, then you'd get the irony and smart scene-making of this clever scene, where SK and an SK-look alike are juxtaposed for a brief moment.
