  • Mine are: Brian Cox - The Bourne Identity movies & The Ring John Hawkes - The Perfect Storm & X-Files John C. Reilly - Casualties of War & Boogie Nights Veronica Cartwright - Alien & X-Files Patricia Clarkson - The Station Agent & The Dead Pool William Fichtner - Prison break & Armageddon All great in their own way, and all have an extensive collection of work! And, I must say, (for honorable mention), as a foreign actor, Rade Serbedzija, (of "Space Cowboys" and "Mission Impossible II" fame) has an outstanding body of work! P.S. I totally forgot Leon - from "Cliffhanger" and Joe Morton - from "Terminator 2" and "Speed I & II"! Once you start, you can't stop with these fine actors who may never be considered leading men/women.
  • Depends on how you define Character Actor: some people use that to mean Actor Who Isn't Handsome Enough To Be A Leading Man But Is Nonetheless Very Talented. ;) These are my picks, although I'll probably think of a bunch more later: 1) Steve Buscemi 2) Tilda Swinton 3) Peter Lorre 4) Forrest Whitaker 5) Kathy Bates Edited to add: Don Cheadle, William H. Macy, Garret Dillahunt (tv actor, look him up - you know him)

  • I think most of you are younger than I am by the actors you've chosen for your answers. But to choose the really great characters on film you have to go back to the people who started it all and go back to the 30s and 40s. Character actors are basically actors who support the leads and do so without the panache of the stars. They do, however, capture your attention by being what their title implies, characters. A Dusin Hoffman, for example, could not be considered a character actor because he does not exude a single character's personality on the screen. He is simply a great actor. Steve Buscemi, however, is a character actor in the traditional sense because his "character" is instantly recognizable and he has most of the credentials for being one (The character actor's credentials are: he or she must be amusing to look at---Peter Lorre---or have a distinctive appearance---George Macready---possess a sense of comedy---James Gleason and many others---and possess marvelous acting skills). Having said that, my favorite character actors are Peter Lorre, Sidney Greenstreet, George Macready
