Who played Teal Beck?
This week fans wanted to know who was playing Teal Beck and got a bit confused. Many fans thought it was Anthony Michael Hall, but that wasn’t the case at all. Instead, this is actor Terry Serpico. They do look a lot alike, though. He was on the shows Army Wives and Designated Survivor.
