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.
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.
