Check the Chimney Tonight...

For anyone who watched The X-Files back in the day, remember the guy that could stretch though smalls spaces in order to kill his victims? Take it away, Wikipedia:
Eugene Victor Tooms, played by Doug Hutchison in the episodes "Squeeze" and "Tooms". An animal control worker in Baltimore, Maryland, Tooms was a mutant capable of stretching and contorting his body into positions physically impossible for a normal human. This gave him access to his victims through small openings such as ventilation shafts, chimneys, and toilets. Every thirty years, Tooms came out of hibernation, killing five people to obtain their livers for sustenance. It is possible that Tooms was over one-hundred years old when Mulder and Scully encountered him; he was linked to similar murder sprees in 1963 and 1933, as well as a single murder in 1903. In the episode "Tooms", Mulder tracked him to his "nest" underneath a shopping mall. When he attacked Mulder, Tooms was presumably crushed to death under a moving escalator.”
“Why are you bringing up Tooms?” you might be asking me. “I just stopped double checking my toilet before I go to bed at night and now you’re going to awaken the nightmares!” Well here’s the deal. Apparently Mr. Hutchison just married a 16 year-old in Las Vegas, NV. Here’s a snippet of the article I read:

“Doug Hutchison, a character actor best known for roles in The Green Mile, Lost and The X-Files, married aspiring country singer Courtney Alexis Stodden on May 20 in Las Vegas. He is 51. She is 16. ”
Okay, so that’s a little odd and that’s probably putting it mildly. But here’s the real reason for this post. Notice how young Hutchison looks and he’s supposedly 51? And recall that Tooms awoke every 30 years to kill some more victims? Well I’ll leave you with this – the earliest credit on Hutchison’s IMDb page only goes back to 1988. Guard your liver well, Mrs. Hutchison. Or should I say – Mrs. Tooms?
