Ever notice those actors that you see all the time in movies but no one ever seems to know their names?

Like this guy...

Erick Avari


My friends and I call him the "Man-ee-way Guy" because that's what he says in the movie Stargate.   TeddyR



Or how about this guy?

Kevin Sussman


It seems like I spot him in every other movie and even TV commercials but you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who knows his actual name.



Or how about Sean Whalen?



This guy pops up in tons of movies and usually plays some kind of "weaselly" character.
I never knew his name until I decided to write this thread.   TongueOut

How about you?
Know of any other actors who appear in lots of movies but nobody knows who they are?

James Rebhorn- http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0714310/#actor1970
There's no picture I can upload here, but there's some on his IMDB site.  He was in Meet the Parents, Kojak, Law and Order, Pete and Pete and a slew of others.  He's one of those guys I'd see and be like, "That guy's in everything."


Christopher McDonald- Unfortunately, not a lot of people seem to know his name.  But, the dude's a brilliantly underrated actor who's got a list of credits a mile long.

My favorite, "Hey! It's that guy!" was always Nicholas Worth before his death last year just two days after my birthday. For those that don't remember him from name, Nick was the bald goon in Darkman, the gay bond dodger in The Glove, the killer in Don't Answer the Phone, a thug in The Naked Gun, and had 80 or so other roles during his time on Earth.

First name to come to mind was Mickey Jones, a guy you could practically expect to see in any movie with bikers, hillbillies, convicts or other rough-looking customers.


For that matter, you could almost say the same thing about Bob Tessier.

My favorite, who it seemed used to be in every movie with action sequences, is Al "Ka Bong" Leong.  Here's his IMDB page and his official(?) website.

The parts that jump to mind include (in chronological order):


You will recognize him when you see him.

That Guy actors rule...theres plenty but the first one I can think of this morning is Larry Cedar.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0147738/

I remember that guy from Square One TV and he really made a niche for himslef as a that guy actor.

It's a bit difficult to decide who qualifies as a "that guy" in this particular group. Many of the character actors who are known by face only to the average viewer are well-known to enthusiasts like us.

For example, Michael Berryman:

He's "that guy" to many people, but a well-known actor around here.

Schiavelli also plays the part of a servant in "Amadeus", and has the first lines of dialogue in the film.

For anyone interested, SCHIAVELLI died the day after Christmas, 2005.  He did a ton of TV work, including on "Star Trek: TNG"

I think I saw him in a episode of McGyver once. 

There is another guy who I can't think of his name, but he is in a lot of TV commercials as of late.  He is in a TruValue TV commercial, a commercial for Toyota in Nascar, and I've seen him on ads for Embarq phone books.

I have another, L.Q. Jones. He made several films with Peckinpah, then popped up here and there on small bits, even on TV. He usually plays parts were he wears cowboy clothes, even in contemporary movies. Here's an interview and pics:

http://www.einsiders.com/features/interviews/lqjones.php

He also directed the cult sci-fi movie "A boy and his dog", and can be seen on small roles on stuff like "Casino", "The Patriot" (Yep, Seagal's film) or the first Xorro movie with Antonio Banderas.

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.
