A character actor is described as:
A supporting actor skilled at playing distinctly unusual, interesting, or eccentric characters, such that they are "almost unrecognizable from part to part", and yet play many, many roles convincingly and memorably

Here's some clips from a couple of my favorite character actors. Both these guys have uttered some of the funniest lines in film history.

This one's a bit crude. R Lee clip from Saving Silverman:


From Full Metal jacket:


The infamous Glock commercial:




Danny Trejo: "Machete don't text." (warning: contains F word)



His Brady Bunch spoof commercials:



With Steve Buscemi:



Danny discussing his past (for real):

I like Emrey. I respect Danny. Dude had it bad and pulled his ass out of the abyss.

"I'd rather shoot for the moon and miss than aim for the gutter and succeed." Danny Trejo.

M Emment Walsh, the man is really a great actor. Who can ever forget his Loren Visser in Blood Simple!

If you haven't ever seen Blood Simple, it is brilliant.



I like Emery and Danny Trejo a lot, I love him as Marchette and in the other Robert Rodriguez films he has been in.

No...I haven't heard of it. I haven't seen anything about it in his online biographies.

Agreed! Walsh is a damn good actor. Blood Simple...very good film. I like almost anything the Cohen Bros do.
O Brother is a masterpiece!
