The Insider : Rip Torn is in this movie??

Rip Torn is in this movie??

So it says that Rip Torn plays "John Scanlon", who is the guy at the New York Times at the end that Bergman gives the story to that denounces CBS for cutting the story. My question is, is that really Rip Torn? Was it good makeup or something because I've watched his scenes over and over again and I really can't tell that it's him at all! It looks and sounds nothing like him. Either he's that great of an actor or it's not really him.

I thought Rip Torn played an altogether different character, who also had only one scene, was sitting behind a desk the whole time, didn't get a close-up, and only said a few words. I thought it was odd, but I guess like all Michael Mann movies there is a lot of footage that didn't get used.
