These pages are devoted to those many fine actors that do not
receive much, if any, mainstream media attention. These actors
typically fall into one the these categories:
- That Guy Usually an actor who plays small roles in
major films, with the occasional starring role in a minor picture.
Often not known by name, but recognized when you see them. "Hey,
it's that guy, who was in that film with (insert major
star's name here)."
- Foreigners An actor who is a huge star outside the U.S.
but is virtually ignored by Hollywood.
- Independants An actor, or a whole group of actors, who
are standards of certain independant filmmakers, but rarely get
cast in big-budget Hollywood films.
OK, I know there's still only Brad up here, and it's been a really
long time. What can I say, I've been busy. I'm about half-way though
my research for the next pick: David Warner. Plese stay tuned. I'll
try not to be so lame this month.
- Brad Dourif March 13th, 1996.
