Default that guy in hl2 (the old guy from the tram)

I never noticed this the first time, but second time I'm playing, I've seen that old guy twice through out the game.. How many times do you actually see this character, and why is he popping in and out of random places?! AHHH hehe

ohh wow, i just saw him a third time, on a tv after i beat nova prospekt or whatever. Right after dog jumps onto the jet and they both fly up, you go left into the building.. inside there's a staircase, to the room in the right, look in there and you'll see him on the tv for just a second.
