* EnsembleDarkhorse: Regularly singled out as a favorite character on shows like ''[[FlashForward2009 Flash Forward]]'', ''Series/KitchenConfidential'', and ''Series/OffCentre''. [[Film/AmericanPie And maybe as the MILF guy too]].
* MemeticMutation: Brought the word "MILF" into popular consciousness.
* OneSceneWonder: As the MILF guy in ''Film/AmericanPie''.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Perhaps most notably, he appeared with his future ''Film/StarTrek'' co-stars Creator/ZacharyQuinto (in ''Series/OffCentre'') and Creator/AntonYelchin (in ''DeliveringMilo'', when Yelchin was around twelve years old, thus making the movie severe FetishRetardant for Sulu/Chekov shippers).
