I'm watching NCIS on USA right now, and on the Season 4, Episode 2 episode titled "Escaped", there's a character named "Russell Nash". But wait, "Russell Nash" was Connor MacLeod's alias in the years 1985 and 1994 in the movies "Highlander" and "Highlander: The Final Dimension". Did NCIS ripoff the character's name? Or was it just a coincidence? Thoughts?

I did a whitepages search for Russell Nash and it came up with 102 of them. Do I think they are all a ripoff of a character's alias on Highlander or vice versa. I think not. Authors pick a name not based on some other author's idea but something out of their own head....

I gotta agree with Bobby here ...

I remember Russell Nash in both instances ...

Damn, not I'm gonna have to look up and see what Streaming service The Highlander belongs too.
