Trivia test of where you've seen those character actors (e.g. Clint Howard).

Apologies if it's been posted before; I don't remember seeing this before on HTF.

Well, I know all of these people, but I've seen very few of the movies provided. I don't know how else they could have done the game, but I couldn't do it this way. For example, yes, I know Keith David. He's a guy I would describe as "the guy from They Live!" But, I've never seen the movies they had listed for him, so it just became a matter of guessing which one he was in.

Yeah, that's a problem I was having as well. Knowing the actor, but not the films they referenced.

I got 6 but guessed 2 right. I suck, but I did recognize them all, just couldn't place them.

They should have just asked for their names. That could have been a challenge for the average person. I did poorly because they didn't list movies I've seen. I always think of Keith David as either the bad wig guy in Barbershop, or the crazy guy from Men At Work. And Dan Hedaya was great in Blood Simple. And Clint Howard? He's been in every Ron Howard-directed movie, yet does a decent enough job.
Never heard of this. I'm a honky.

14, Chris Ellis was the only one I got wrong. Pretty easy for fans of character actors.

Ditto. I knew all of their faces very well except for one. I was sitting there saying to myself stuff like "Lane Smith was in Son-in=Law. Why isn't that a choice?" etc.

Agreed. I remember Keith David from The Thing, Lane Smith from From The Earth To The Moon and V (OK, that's TV and not movies), Clint Howard from just about every Ron Howard movie etc, but I haven't seen a fair number of the various movies they offered as options.
