Malcolm Ward's Wyoming drivers license. (Click for larger version)
Mike Colter as Malcolm Ward. Ward has disappeared and may be dead.
RINGER, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, has the most interesting habit of providing attentive viewers with lovely bits of trivia, often only in visuals. For instance, in Episode 18 which aired on 20 March we got a look at the drivers licence of Malcolm Ward. Now we now he was born 7 February 1980, is 6’3″ tall (290.5cm) and that on 10 September 2010 when the licence was issued he weighed 208 lbs (94.3kg). Also, in Wyoming, Restriction “B” means that he must wear corrective lenses. Since he has never worn glasses on the show, it is a reasonable assumption that the character wears contact lenses.
Mike Colter, who plays Malcolm, is 6’3″. His weight fluctuates from role to role. For MILLION DOLLAR BABY, he put on 15 pounds.
It seems that Malcolm may be dead, but no body has been found. Killing off the character would simplify Bridget Kelly’s life a bit.
Malcolm Ward (Mike Colter), Bridget’s NA sponsor from Wyoming, escaped his captors and fled Rock Springs, WY by bus. He knocks out his pursuer in a cafe restroom, and makes his way to New York City to see Bridget.
The cafe/bus stop where Malcolm disposes of his pursuers. In Rawlins, WY?
One of the biggest problems with Bridget Kelly as a character is that all of her relationships are fake. She pretends to be Andrew’s wife, to be Henry’s ex-mistress, to be Juliet’s stepmother, to be Gemma’s best friend. She is, in actuality, none of these things (though she may wish to be). She is in love with Malcolm. The character will be much more believable should she be able to express that.
Roadsign on I-80 east of Rock Springs
Malcolm escapes his pursuers at the Halfway House Cafe, which, if the roadsign shown shortly before his arrival there is to be believed, is in Rawlins, Wyoming. All the Halfway House Cafes with which I am familiar are in California. There are three cafes in Rawlins and none of them have that name.
We did find out Malcolm’s address (along with the fact that he puts a second ‘L’ in his name) from a
letter in a drawer in his apartment. He lives at 77 Canton Rd, Rock Springs, WY 82901.
