Al Leong

You know him. He's the guy you call when you need an Asian Guy, especially if you need a bad guy.

I'd consider Steve Buscemi a 'that guy' actor. He's got a boatload of credits, including starring on a hit HBO series, yet nobody knows his name.

Michael Berryman is hard to miss

Bruce Spence also gives me a chuckle whenever I see him on screen:

For some reason or another, a while back I decided to make it a point of pointing out Frank Whaley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Whaley) whenever he showed up on anything.

(http://www.nndb.com/people/925/000025850/jimmy-sized.jpg)

No particular reason, other than I think it's funny. I actually think he's a pretty great actor, just never seemed to hit it big. His "break" role was acting oppositte Jennifer Connelly in the not-so-compelling Career Opportunities (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Career_Opportunities_%28film%29). It didn't pan out, but I recommend watching that movie if you have any interest in seeing Jennifer Connelly riding one of those cheap rides in front of grocery stores.

Also, he got shot at the end of the iconic "Ezekiel 25:17" speech in Pulp Fiction.

Irwin Keyes, less because he's been in a boatload of movies, more because he was a very nice guy when I met him at a con. Except for the whole trying-to-kill-me thing.  :teddyr:

Although he finally got a leading man role (Machete), I'll include Danny Trejo here, too: the badass Mexican in many movies.

He was quite effectively creepy in VACANCY.

While watching the remake of "My Bloody Valentine" this past weekend, I was pleasantly surprised to see Tom Atkins of "Halloween III," "Escape From New York," "Maniac Cop" and "The Fog" fame. I hadn't seen him in quite a few years.

I first noticed this guy in THE GIANT CLAW, but since then I've seen him in a bunch of stuff.
He's acted in 128 movies and TV shows.
