	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.
