Today we look at...
What's the horror connection? Two words...Maniac Cop, 'nuff said. Mr. Z'Dar has been at it since the 80's and is still in motion. One other memorable scene for us all I'm sure is his character in "Tango and Cash" as 'Face'. The way he eyeballed Stallone and Russell would make their own mothers weep.
Congrats Mr. Z'Dar, you have earned a spot on our "that guy" list.
So where's the horror connection? Flight of the Living Dead and Fright Night part II. Not a major horror realm, but this guy has also been at it since the 80's and really stands out as a great character actor. I don't know about you guys, but I wouldn't want to meet him in a dark alley on a bad day, especially if he really has one of those awesome slayer knives from the Cobra film.
Congrats Mr. Thompson, you have made our "that guy" list, because we don't want to get sliced.
What is the horror connection? He played 'Father Callaway' in the 2005 "The Amityville Horror" and 'Sheriff Al Chambers' in the 1998 version of "Psycho".
Other roles span from television series to other feature films and he is apparently still rolling along in 2012.
Congrats Mr. Hall, you have made our "that guy" list.
Is this the horror connection? No, of course not. But what is the horror connection is one of our favorite genre films "Hellraiser". Andrew plays 'Larry', and the rest is history. He also appeared as 'Sargeant Botnick' in "Childs Play 3". Well done sir and congrats, you have earned a spot on our "that guy" list.
From television to film, Brion played bad guys that we would never want to have to deal with in real life. He just didn't give a damn, he played it to the bone. I personally recommend seeing his performances in "Steel Dawn" as 'Tark', "Tango and Cash" as 'Raquin' (with the aforementioned Robert Z'Dar) and "Enemy Mine" as 'Stubbs'.
Congrats Mr. James. You have definitely earned a spot on our "that guy" list. May you rest in peace.
