Character actors! I love them. Those are the actors that appear in dozens of movies over and over but never in a starring role.
They keep things moving forward in the movie but don't dazzle you with flashiness.
I watched a 1989 Kojak TV movie yesterday and was astounded by how many of these guys I saw in the film.
In the film Kojak is lured out of retirement for a case involving a little girl.
He works with this guy:
Andre Braugher is best known for his on Law & Order and Homicide. He's also done dozens of movies usually playing a military officer or judge or cop.
He's been everything from a heart doctor to a surgeon.
So what did we learn?
1. There are pretty interesting people that work alongside Kojak.
2. Never overlook the supporting players in your favorite film.
3. I don't know how to make good comparisons.
