They are one and the same. Jack Nance is the actor's name, and the
years have not been particularly kind to him. He is a David Lynch reg-
ular, appearing in _Dune_ (I beleive he was the Baron's secretary) as
well as _Blue Velvet_ (as a member of Dennis Hopper's gang). He may
have popped up in _Wild At Heart_, too, but I don't remember.
