No Longer Will Character Actors Be Referred to as 'Hey, It's That Guy'
Day in and day out, character actors go without the recognition that superstars, blockbuster leading men and Oscar-winners get every single day. Most of the time audiences can't even be bother to learn their name, constantly pointing and saying "Hey, it's that guy!" or "It's that guy from that one thing." But some of Hollywood's character actors have had enough, and they're looking for some recognition. Entertainment Weekly has put together this powerful PSA featuring character actors like Rob Corddry, Doug Jones, Rob Huebel and more, making sure you know who they are, and they deserve to be called by their name.
Here's EW's important message from the character actors of Hollywood:
Donald Faison, Matt Walsh, David Costabile, Silas Weir Mitchell, Anthony Stewart Head, Donal Logue and Mark Evan Jackson aren't anywhere near covering all the various actors who don't gain the fame of actors like Tom Hanks. Though this PSA is tongue-in-cheek in nature, character actors deserve serious recognition, because their performances allow the leading man to shine, giving them just the right performance to play off of on the big and small screen. However, we're wondering where all the character actresses are in this video, because it's not just these supporting male talents who go unnoticed.
