That Guy


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
