This is truly a great book that any fan of TV or film will sure to enjoy.
The best thing about this book is a face goes with a name, and yes, some of the humor is good, it could have been better with much more information.
I like having a name with a face, but the authors could have gone further with backgrounds on the actors even using one page bios.
I like the concept and the execution of this book, the way it groups character actors into categories and the humorous "bio" for each, but I dislike the narrow focus. Read morePublished 2 months ago by James D. Crabtree
The book while an easy read and fun to read, it was to short on material, I am sure their is another teir of character actors that could be included.Published 23 months ago by Andrew Hamilton

It is an excellent book. We only wish that it went back further to cover movies from the 50's and earlier.Published on November 10, 2012 by Judith R. Heinemann
If you want a quick reference guide for character actors, this is a great place to go. With so much emphasis on humor, I wish the authors, who operate the website Fametracker. Read morePublished on April 26, 2012 by William A. Howes
A quicky guide to supporting actors you may
recognize but don't have a clue what their
names are. It was amusing and interesting.
Disappointed,no Strother Martin,William Smith,Clifton James,etc:
So,I kinda like it not complete to suite me,i was really hoping those 3 guys would be there.
An entertaining book with interesting tidbits about lots of familiar character actors. True movie buffs will probably know a lot of the actors already, but still good fun.Published on October 20, 2008 by S. Monteagudo
I received this book as a gift, and gave another copy as a gift. I thought it was a lot of fun. It's really interesting and can be a bit addictive sometimes...Published on July 9, 2007 by R. Sturgis
