Historically, Thomas Becket was the archbishop of Canterbury in England from 1162 until he was martyred in 1170, during the reign of King Henry II. He was the eponymous protagonist, portrayed by Richard Burton in the film Becket (1964). Tom Beckett was also the name of the protagonist's brother in Quantum Leap: The Leap Home: Part 2 (Vietnam) - April 7, 1970 (1990).
He's a fuckin' American!
Thomas Beckett: He's a fuckin' spook. Ex-CIA. I met him once up in El Salvador. Now he's an enforcer for the cocaine monkeys. I'll take out the lieutenant, you concentrate on him. Now put a fuckin' bullet through his heart.
After Beckett's spotter gets shot by an enemy sniper in the beginning, the blood on his chin appears, disappears, and finally appears again.
