        Lynne Thigpen. Maybe the most successful career of the bunch. Although I saw David Patrick Kelly in a bunch of tv shows last season.

                  As mookie said James Remar had a few roles. Michael Beck had a few roles too, unfortunately Xanadu was one.

                      Forgot about James Remar. One of my favorite character actors.

                      If you're a music fan, you should check out this short film he was in, Session Man. Some great actors in this short little thing.

                        The Judge:

                        The Courtroom Drama part was great, as was the overall acting (sidebar: Vera Farmiga dirties up kinda nice!), but the dysfunctional family cliches weigh this movie down heavily. And what's with the "special" guy always having the same frumpy K-Mart jacket? That has to be some inside joke in the industry, paying homage to Rain Man. If it isn't, well, it's a terrible trend/stereotype.

                        One thing, hidden, as it is a spoiler:


                        So, Hank made out with his possible daughter. Ew, ok, they cover that a little. BUT, in the end, oh, it's okay because it was only his niece! ***?! And it implies that he probably continues a relationship with his niece's mother! Hey, it's Indiana! Must be normal in this neck of the woods! /HollywoodEnding

                          The Wild Bunch:

                          Great movie. I can see where Scorcese and Tarantino got some influence from it. Crazy ending. Bonus: El Guapo (Three Amigos!) is in it. Instantly recognizable!

                                The Judge was terrible. Talk about a paint by numbers plot. Such a waste of acting talent...

                                This is Where I Leave You is a much better movie about family returning home because of illness/death in the family.
