Max Perlich? Giovanni Ribisi?

no? oh, good.
 
2014-03-23 01:16:07 PM
Meh. Just plausible deniability on his part.
 
2014-03-23 01:17:15 PM
That's not entirely true...
 
2014-03-23 01:23:01 PM
I think he played in My Cousin Vinnie also. The *expert* witness about tire marks and what brand and model they were.

Yup. And Seinfeld as the prosecutor in the finale. And Independence Day as the National Security Advisor. And a billion other things.

Not this guy

the801: Giovanni Ribisi?


Every one of that guy's performances I've seen, what he does seems more like mugging than acting to me.

Watching someone like Dennis Weaver in Touch of Evil I think to myself 'holy shiat, that guy's insane'. Watching Ribisi I just think 'well isn't he impressed with himself'.
 
2014-03-23 03:06:25 PM
The black guy or the white guy?
 
2014-03-23 03:18:49 PM
That sucks.  He was a great actor.  Had such a Boston Brahmin look about him, but I think he was from the midwest.
 
2014-03-23 03:22:59 PM
He was the dad in Mike Birbiglia's "Sleepwalk With Me". Great little movie, you should watch it.

This is how I remember him best.

Is William Fichtner still a "that guy"? Or has he risen above that level since Prison Break?
 
2014-03-23 03:27:35 PM
He played  Harrison Storms the VP of North American in 'From the Earth to the moon' the episode about Apollo 1.
 
2014-03-23 03:27:49 PM
Oh man! I just spilled yogurt on my shirt. Anyway this guy was actually in everything so you don't have to specify 'your show'. EVERY show. EVERY movie. He was in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. He was in Sunrise: A Tale of Two Humans. He was in Hoop Dreams. He was in Avengers 3. He was in Lion King, and I don't mean he voiced a character, he was actually IN it. He was a contestant on Wheel of Fortune. He was on Cumfiesta. (His porn name was also James Rebhorn). I think I spotted this guy in Last of the Mohicans. He played Colonel Malcolm, Major Duncan, Hawkeye, Cora Munro, Alice Munro, and Magua. He was both twins in Parent Trap starring Hayley Mills. She was his stunt double.
 
2014-03-23 03:30:35 PM
The only mistake they ever made was to appoint a sniveling little weasel like him to play Secretary of Defense. However, that is a mistake, I am happy to say, that we don't have to live with. Mr. Rebhorn... you're fired.

/Good actor, though

NewportBarGuy: [i61.tinypic.com image 600x480]


I vaguely remember him being a terrifying part of that movie because he was the clue when it all starts to unravel.

Gsm136: He played  Harrison Storms the VP of North American in 'From the Earth to the moon' the episode about Apollo 1.


Thanks. I was trying to place him on something I owned.

farkeruk: Is William Fichtner still a "that guy"? Or has he risen above that level since Prison Break?


I don't know, but he was the only good thing about the recent Lone Ranger movie.
 
2014-03-23 03:44:55 PM
He actually lived in Jersey City NJ.  Ironically he spoke at my uncle's funeral about ten years ago - Jim wasa deacon at the church.  So whenever we saw Jim in a movie, we would say "there's dead uncle guy"
 
2014-03-23 03:46:09 PM
Nope.

Michael Ensign is still very much alive.

Just watched Ghostbusters again. Kids new favorite film.
 
2014-03-23 03:47:20 PM
Well that's a coincidence, because I just started listening to Stephen King's "From a Buick 8". When I heard his voice I thought, "hey! it's that guy!". Just yesterday I googled the cast and sure enough...

/No, I don't think I am living a Stephen King novel.
 
2014-03-23 03:51:42 PM
Somehow I knew it would be him...weird
 
2014-03-23 03:52:40 PM

clancifer: Meh. Just plausible deniability on his part.


His only mistake was being quoted by a sniveling little weasel like you.
 
2014-03-23 03:52:50 PM
What a shiatty article, how does a site do and obit yet fail to mention how he died?
 
2014-03-23 03:53:38 PM
"Scent of a Woman star James Rebhorn"?

If you ask anybody "who starred in Scent of a Woman?", I guarantee you that nobody is answering with "James Rebhorn".  The only thing worth remembering about that movie is Al Pacino.  Oh, and that O'Donnell guy was in it, back when he acted in movies.
 
2014-03-23 03:58:53 PM
Secretary Nimziski was his first role I thought of.

"Uh... excuse me, Mr. President? That's not entirely accurate."
 
2014-03-23 04:01:18 PM
Oh, it's THAT guy.  The one that added greying-white-guy-in-a-suit gravitas to any scene.  RIP, white-guy-in-a-suit-with-gravitas.  Now you're white-guy-in-a-suit-in-a-coffin.
 
2014-03-23 04:01:24 PM

Barfmaker: The black guy or the white guy?


yes.
 
2014-03-23 04:01:56 PM
I was worried it was Stephen Tobolowsky. Bing!

zekeburger: Secretary Nimziski was his first role I thought of.

"Uh... excuse me, Mr. President? That's not entirely accurate."


I just love the way he said that. Followed by the look he gets from the President.

/Seriously, though, RIP Rebhorn

Phillip Seymour Hoffman was in it too. I wonder who will be next to succumb to the 'Scent of a Woman star curse'. If it's Gabrielle Anwar I call dibs on the corpse.

steamingpile: What a shiatty article, how does a site do and obit yet fail to mention how he died?


He was mauled to death by a pack of wolves while riding in a flaming tractor trailer careening into a ravine.

What do you think happened? He was old.
 
2014-03-23 04:20:33 PM
65 isn't old-old.

He was great in Michael Douglas' film, The Game.

Kudos and Kodos to said other farker for making me think of The Game.

I lose.
 
2014-03-23 04:20:55 PM
I thought maybe it was Anthony Zerbe.

He died from melanoma, which had been diagnosed in 1992. Farewell, fine acting man

He was absolutely the best part of Drive Angry.  That entire film sucked balls except for the 10 or so minutes he was on screen.

Lsherm: He was absolutely the best part of Drive Angry.

Yep.
 
2014-03-23 04:56:36 PM
I'll always remember his face going into the deep fryer in Scotland, PA.

/Goodnight, Crispy man.
 
2014-03-23 05:16:36 PM
I remember him from the 1997 Michael Douglas film, "The Game." I seem to be the only person I know who likes that film.
 
2014-03-23 05:16:48 PM
He was almost always  the guy in Guarding Tess.
 
2014-03-23 05:24:58 PM

you are a puppet: He was in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.


He was mentioned in every Quentin Tarantino movie.
 
2014-03-23 05:27:21 PM
I wonder how Claire Danes will take the news :/
 
2014-03-23 05:37:34 PM
Weird. The only character of his whose name I remember was from Independence Day, knew his name though.
 
2014-03-23 05:42:44 PM
Years ago, I used to watch "The Guiding Light". He played an evil, sexual molester stepfather, Bradley Raines. He was scarily good. RIP.
 
2014-03-23 05:48:24 PM
Always liked his acting.

And what's up with the article? No (at the very least) 'he died after a long/short illness'?
 
2014-03-23 05:49:38 PM

Boojum2k: Lsherm: He was absolutely the best part of Drive Angry.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5P3-LPjuC4

Yep.


I dunno, I'm kind of partial to the skanky blonde early in the movie. Not as hot as Amber Heard, obviously, but she worked a lot harder as a result.
 
2014-03-23 05:50:30 PM
I'm not saying it was after a long battle with skin cancer but it was after a long battle with skin cancer.
 
2014-03-23 06:03:53 PM
It seems I have to be the one to mention his most iconic role as Preston's father in "Blank Check".

/He never did get that prospectus.
 
2014-03-23 06:09:59 PM

markie_farkie: That's not entirely true...


That's the firt thing that popped into my head, too!
