Pollak is one of those actors you instantly recognize, even if you don’t know his name. He’s been in A Few Good Men, Casino, Ricochet, The Usual Suspects, The Whole Nine Yards, and Grumpy Old Men (among many, many others). He got his start as a stand-up comedian, and his impressions—especially his Shatner—are legendary. Here he takes us back through his career: working with Robert DeNiro and Tom Cruise and Warren Beatty and Steve Martin and Rob Reiner and Martin Scorcese (not all at once); playing pranks on Paul Reiser and Alan Arkin; teaching Johnny Carson how to do a wicked Shatner impression; watching his mother hit on Jack Nicholson. The book is full of funny or surprising stories (sometimes they’re both) and plenty of self-deprecating humor. Pollak is a working actor, not a star, and his book is all the more likable for it. A genuinely entertaining movie memoir. --David Pitt
