The forward is in the form of an interview with Stephen Tobolowsky, who played the salesman Ned Ryerson in Groundhog Day. He talks about how the he was forced by the nature of his short appearance to figure out where his character is coming from.
The character actors are all of recent vintage. Fans of older movies will need to consult a different source. But those included are excellent.
The actors are grouped according to the type of movie they most often appear in, such as military movies, cop shows, office settings, mob movies, and so on.
A great addition to any movie reference library. Like I don't have nearly enough crap.
For the most part, this is a very useful guide for looking up actors that look familiar. The descriptions of each actor are humorous but informative. There are several useful indexes in the back of the book and best of all a section with the pictures and names of all the actors featured in the book. Unfortunately, the book is on the small size; I would have preferred a larger book, with more roles listed for each actor. And some of the pictures are movie stills and not very clear, which is shame since the pictures should be the strong point of the book.
All in all, movie and trivia buffs will enjoy this reference book.
