Supersleuth Jimmy Kimmel noticed a very peculiar comment left on an article titled “Does ‘Three Billboards’ Say Anything About America? Well…” from The New York Times.

A reader by the name of Peter Rockwell left a comment reading, “I loved this movie, and intend to see it again. My son, Sam, won a Golden Globe for playing Jason Dixon. I think I would still love the movie if another actor had played Dixon… But not quite as much.”

Yup! Sam Rockwell confirmed, “I think that’s him, I think that’s my old man,” when visiting “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Tuesday’s episode.
