Will you identify them please? Don't just show us pics without telling us who they are!
Thanks! I thought that was Royal Dano, but I'm used to him younger, and I didn't know John Larch's name.
All these guys. I forgot the name for the 2nd string actors.
They are all good.
Ken Curtis aka Gunsmoke's Festus Haggen. Maybe a little too "sung" for this thread, but he was the real deal. Lived to age 10 on a Colorado ranch, then the family moved to the first floor of the building that had the county jail upstairs after his father successfully ran for sheriff. Sang with the Tommy Dorsey band after Sinatra, hosted Jamboree, then was lead vocalist for the Sons of the Pioneers. All that and five episodes of "Have Gun - Will Travel" on top of numerous Western musicals. Performed in traveling Western variety shows on production breaks from Gunsmoke.
Some life, boy. RIP Ken.
I had a buddy that use to refer to an actor being a “that guy”...when you’d recognize an actor from seeing him in a lot of different roles, but you never knew his name, he was an “oh, that guy!”
I always remember him as Gus the fireman from Leave it to Beaver.
There used to be a website devoted to these folks, called "Hey, It's That Guy!" So now we refer to those folks as "hey, it's that guy"s.
If they're Brits (because there's a whole raft of 'em you see in British movies and TV) we call them "hey, it's that bloke".
He had a memorable cameo in the film M.A.S.H.
Additionally, he was a Jazz pianist and wrote "Route 66"
What about the ole shaggy dog that appeared on several Gunsmoke episodes...
Incredible, had no idea
There really is a board for everything. And a recent thread too.
My semi-famous uncle had a toe in that water.
Every Mary Tyler Moore fan remembers the Ted Baxter School of Broadcasting where they rented a hall and only one guy showed up...that was him.
Whit Bissell was in everything!
I often feel that the word 'hero' gets used incorrectly. This thread is a prime example in my opinion.
Agreed. We need another word that means "popular, and entitled to public adulation and support for doing a job without screwing it up too badly".
This is a pic from the Phil Silvers show. PS is in the middle. The guy on the left is the late Harvey Lembeck. His son Michael was on One Day At A Time. The other is Allan Melvin who had a multi decade presence in TV, movies & animation.
Sam the Butcher bringin Alice the meat...
