Have you ever tried to read and run at the same time? It is very difficult if you are not on a treadmill and even then it is not advisable, which just makes Speed Reader all the more impressive. This guy could read in ANY environment, not matter what obstacles you put in his way.
Speed Reader was played by Ken Myles. According to Ken’s IMDB he also appeared in “The Barber” episode of Seinfeld as Mike, one of the guys who works at Sanalac where George just “got” his job.
