That Guy is a neat site compiling a list of character actors who you have probably seen in films.
To make the cut they must have appeared in a ‘solid number’ of movies and TV shows, preferably 75 movies/series and 100 TV guest appearances.
Bonus points go to those that have ‘non-recurring roles in multiple hit movies’ or ‘guest appearances on popular TV shows’.
Traits of these character actors usually mean that they:
- Have a resume that indicates quantity over quality
- Are frequently typecast
- Remind people of somebody more famous
- Fit an Ethnic Stereotype
- Can be described in two words
- Played the bad guy in a sequel
