Is it a coincidence that the father of Barnabas Collins looks more than a little like Dan Curtis?

He does favor Dan Curtis. I hope that he is a gruff Joshua, in keeping with Louis Edmonds' take on the character.

I too hope they follow Louis' portrayal of Joshua (he was so good at portraying flawed daddies). I think that Barnabas' relationship with his father influenced his choice of Josette over Angelique.
