Famous Actors You Never Know The Names Of

POSTED ON: 2013-08-04 17:03:46 - POSTED BY: themoviejudge

It seems as though there's a plethora of actors we never really know the names of, I mean, we know them by face but that's about it, even though they are continuously on our screens in movie after movie, well here's a little list of the best. Can you even get 4 of them? I doubt it....

Michael Ironside

Michael Ironside

Micahel Ironside is a guy who is in pretty much nearly every movie you've ever seen (slight exaggeration). However, for the drast majority of people, no one ever really remembers him, I mean, they know him by face but not by name. On top of that he probably has one of the most recognisable voices in all of cinema.

Where you've probably seen him:

  1. Total Recall
  2. Maximum Velocity
  3. X-Men: First Class

Ronny Cox

Ronny Cox

Ronny Cox i the ultimate movie bad guy, I don't think he's ever played a good guy (except in Deliverance). However, Ronny Cox is notoriously known as being such a friendly guy, on set on screen though, he's certainly a man you wouldn't want to mess with, especially when he's cast as super rich, powerful evil business mogul hell bent on destroying the world Gwahahaha evil laugh

Where you've probably seen him:

  1. Deliverance
  2. RoboCop
  3. Beverly Hills Cop
  4. Total REcall

Kurtwood Smith

Kurtwood Smith

Kurtwood Smith starred in one of my favourite Sci-Fi movies of all time, Fortress. He has played an array of bad guys throughout his acting journey, most of which usually end up in his own demise. However, on odd occasions he has glimmers of hope where he actually gets cast as a good guy.... His niche definitely is with the dark side though.

Where you've probably seen him:

  1. Fortress
  2. Rambo III
  3. RoboCop
  4. Dead Poets Society

Delroy Lindo

Delroy Lindo

I believe Delroy Lindo deserves more acclaim than he gets, I think this is probably one of the most famous faces yet most unknown names in the whole of Hollywood, every time I see him on screen I always think, I can't guess this guys name, although, I should find out what the hell it is.

Where you've probably seen him:

  1. Gone in 60 Seconds
  2. Up
  3. Congo
  4. The One

Stephen Tobolowsky

Stephen Tobolowsky

This guy is probably one of the most recognisable unknown guys in the whole of Hollywood, I'm pretty sure he's been in every movie ever made. I just forget about him, that's not to say he's not a good actor, which he is, he's brilliant, I guess he just never really gets his chance to shine. He's not the type of leading man you'd expect. In fact, before I even looked him up, I couldn't quite remember his name, even though I'm a fan. Sorry Steve!

Where you've probably seen him:

  1. Memento
  2. Groundhog Day
  3. The Insider
  4. Buried

Bob Gunton

Bob Gunton

Bob Gunton is a man most famous from the amazing Shawshank Redemption, which he played the prison Warden (he played the part beautifully might I add). Mr Gunton has been in a vast amount of movies, most of which are incredibly well known, he always seems to play some kind of authoritative position, whether it's the warden in Shawshank or Col. John Hardesty in Pursuit of Honour.

Where you've probably seen him:

  1. Shawshank Redemption
  2. Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls
  3. Demolition Man
  4. Argo

Dylan Baker

Dylan Baker

Another to add to the tally, Dylan Baker has been in countless hits, such as Spider-Man, Revolutionary Road, Requiem for a Dream & Disclosure. Although it seems as though his efforts sometimes go a little under the radar.

Where you've probably seen him:

  1. The Cell
  2. Disclosure
  3. Revolutionary Road
  4. Spider-Man
