Best known for his portray as a pseudo paedophile with a love of comedy midgets aka Oompa Loompas and chocolate.
Notable for bad hair under pressure and a tendency to randomly burst into song.

Often found masquerading (albeit very poorly) as an Investment Banker with a distinctly 1983 line in drainpipe trousers teamed with excessively pointy loafers.

In summary, a complete tool.
J Lindsay looks just like Gene Wilder with that crap haircut
