It's a great book for any fan of the website, TV and movie buffs, and any lovers of pop culture. Trust me, if you buy only one book this year about Bruce Greenwood, the dude who played Logan's first partner from "Law and Order", and that woman who played the next door neighbour on that show about the kid who was really a robot, make it this one!

HASH(0xa57def00) out of 5 stars Good Reference Guide March 6 2006
By drebbles - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Hey! It's That Guy!" is a neat little guide to character actors. It has thirteen chapters devoted to various types of roles (the courtroom, the hospital, the office, and the precinct, for example) and features pictures and descriptions of actors that are best known for playing those types of roles. There are also various very helpful icons used throughout the book such as award winner, straight to video, villain and deceased. Also included in the portrait of each actor is a timeline with his or her most famous roles listed.

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.

HASH(0xa58a80fc) out of 5 stars Hey, it's those people we see from time to time, March 14 2009
By JPGRfan - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a pretty good biography (I use that word loosely) book.

It's done in a witty, wisecracking way, but, after reading it like that for the first 10 actors, you start wanting maybe a date of birth, where are they from, maybe interesting trivia about their life.

What we mostly get is the persons name, what type of characters they usually play, and a few movie titles
or tv shows they were in.

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 was going to give it 3 stars, but, because of all the faces that finaly get names to go with them, and some of the TV and movie info that goes with those faces,
I give it 4 stars.

It's still worth buying for those character actor fans in book land, of course you'll have to look else where for more information on these character actors.

HASH(0xa57de06c) out of 5 stars Where's the rest of the info Feb. 23 2006
By Bookworm - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was interesting in that you finally had a name with some familiar faces, but it was a little too irrevant. I wanted more info on the actors themselves not just some wisecracks that the authors thought were funny. I think the authors were a little too impressed with their own wit. 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.

HASH(0xb680a468) out of 5 stars Read Once, Throw Away Sept. 10 2010

Very disappointing. The authors fill most of the space with "funny" comments and other observations, possibly to make up for what little they wrote about the actors. I have a similar 1969 book ("The Versatiles"), and every year or so, I pull it out and read it again for fun. Most of those actors have since passed away. I was hoping this book would be a modern version, but it's not.

HASH(0xa5b5cfa8) out of 5 stars Characters from the 1980s and 1990s mostly Oct. 10 2014
By James D. Crabtree - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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. You would think nothing worth watching had been done before 1980 or after 2000. Still, I give it high marks for its design.
