You know those guys who you see regularly in movies but who almost never star in them? Guys like…
Well, here’s a list of a bunch of these actors.
To make it onto this list…
…a “That Guy” has to have appeared in a solid number of both movies and TV shows. The numbers are not carved in stone but 75 movies/series and 100 TV guest appearancess are the “lifetime .300 average and 500 homers” for this particular hall of fame.
Some common traits of a “That Guy” actor:
- Reminds people of somebody more famous (“The poor man’s ______”).
- Can be described in two words (e.g. “Bad cop,” Kindly grandfather”).
- Played the bad guy in a sequel.
- Resume shows a preference for quantity over quality in the roles they’ve taken.
