Which character actor does this portrait remind you of?

Identity check. Which character actor does this portrait remind you of? The man I have in my head but whose name I can't remember tends to play asshole lawyers or accountants. Oh and it's not Richard Jenkins.

Looks a lot like Armin Shimerman to me.

I think he looks like James Woods.

A bit like Lee Strasberg to me.

Totally John Turturro.

I can definitely see Armin Shimerman in the shape of the face.

Oh! Richard E. Grant.

None of those. This guy is usually way down the cast list. I see him sitting behind tables in suits.

I was going to say Vincent Schiavelli, but he's not usually a jerky lawyer. But then I found this list and thought it might be James Cromwell. Read the list for a pic of each one.

Also, there is "Hey It's That Guy" on Fametracker.

Little bit of Willem Dafoe.

It might be David Schneider (Photo).

Alan Rickman?

Not a character actor, but I think he looks a touch like Eliot Spitzer.

Marck Metcalf?

I was thinking F. Murray Abraham.

Sorry, of course the correct spelling is "Mark" and Mr. Metcalf's filmography is here. He was recently seen behind a table in a suit in Mad Men as the head of the city council.

Zeljko Ivanek?

I don't really see it, but maybe Kurt Fuller? He's certainly played his share of asshole lawyer-types.

My thought was Patrick McGoohan, specifically from his roll of the judge in "A time to Kill". Scroll down link for a pic of him in that roll.

The magnificent Lance Henriksen.

Colm Feore

Oooh, yeah, I can definitely see some Colm Feore lurking in the bone structure.
posted by Diagonalize at 3:31 PM on October 22, 2009


He reminds me a little of Andreas Katsulas.

Actually, the first google image result it better...it's something about the lips and nose where i'm seeing the similarity.

I don't know if it is Colm Feore the OP is thinking of but it was him I had in my mind when I saw the portrait and I could not put a name to the face so thanks tzuzie for putting me out of my misery.

We have a winner. Hooray. Colm Feore!

Ah, now I think of (Home Alone-era, actor playing Kramer on show-within-a-show on Seinfeld) Larry Hankin I see you've got it all figured out.
