Separated At Birth?

As regular readers know, I've recently been quite consumed with my first reading of Anthony Powell's multi-volume opus A Dance To The Music of Time.

I have wondered off and on whether anyone ever managed to dramatize such an enormous (and enormously complicated) work for tee vee. Well, a quick check indicates that yes, indeed, it has been done. But imagine my drop-jawed surprise when I went searching for images of what one of the main villains of the piece, Kenneth Widmerpool, might look like in person:


"Great Heavens!" I thought, "It's Flounder!"


I don't know what to make of this, but one way or another it can't be a good thing.

Flounder? What means this word "Flounder?" That's Vir Cotto, minor Centauri noble, onetime aide to Ambassador Londo Mollari, and later Emperor of the Centauri Republic.
