I'm up at Mammoth Mountain, walking the halls of the main lodge and run across an actor, one of which I cannot identify. I didn't interrupt him as he was with his family but it's killing me that I cannot put a name to his face. I cannot think of any films he's been in, he's done more TV work then film and has been more of a supporting actor then lead. What to do? Walk the isles at BB in hopes of seeing his face on a dvd cover?

Fret not, it will probably occur to you as you're standing half asleep in the bathroom taking a piss at 2:53AM on a Tuesday. -- H

It might be easier to try and remember the name of a cp-star in one of this guy's movies or TV shows. Semi-related, I've thought a good website would be one that has headshots of "famous" character actors that appear in hundreds (sometimes it seems like thousands) of movies and TV shows, like Strother Martin, L. Q. Jones, Don Stroud, Bruce Cabot, Luke Askew, Anthony Zerbe, etc., but I'm not sure of the legality of such a page.

Can you post a rough sketch or something, we're grasping at straws here....
"Did you know that more people are murdered at 92 degrees Fahrenheit than any other temperature? I read an article once. Lower temperatures, people are easy-going, over 92 and it's too hot to move, but just 92, people get irritable."

If you have an opportunity, and a pen and piece of paper ready to go, how about asking, "May I have your autograph please?" Just hope that: 1)He's agreeable. 2)It's legible. 3)He doesn't ask you which of his roles is your favorite.

Tall / big (no fat), short sandy-brown/blond'ish hair, deep voice, kinda of a chubby face, kinda plain looking as well.
Decked out in ski gear with my ski's/poles and my daughters in hands, I had no access to pen and paper. Even if I did I'd not bother him for an auto. Sorry guys, this is more a venting thread then anything as everything about this guy escapes. Again, no major actor here.

Was it Tom Wilson ? He's 6'3", married with 4 kids, and has a fairly deep voice when he's knocking you on the head and shouting "McFly!" Posted Image

The only change I would make to that site is when you load the page it shows all the actor's faces and when you click on it, then you get the bio. Character actors are known more for their faces than their names. Often I'll be reading a blurb to see if I want to watch an old movie and not recognize the names, but when I watch it I'll recognize just about everyone in it.

Close but no cigar Tom. Not even close there Alf. I've just about given up hope on putting a name to this guys face. Until I see a film or TV show with him in it, it's hopeless.

How recently did this happen? Any chance you can call the place, tell someone at the front desk when you were there and ask if they know who the guy was? I worked part time at different hotels in Maryland and New York when I was in college, and we had the odd political (mostly Maryland/D.C.) or show biz (mostly New York) celebrity guests. I usually knew who even the minor ones were, and I often had other guests stop by the desk and ask if the short/tall/thin/fat guy or gal was somebody famous, and if so, who? Regards, Joe

I've got a company Nextel, it sucks, but it's free. It all took place on Wednesday, March 9th, of this year. But, considering the traffic that goes through that mountain I highly doubt I'd be able to get any type of decent info. Someday I'll see his face and BAM!
