That Guy Actor of the Week: Richard Kind

I want to thank Richard Kind for bringing a new idea to the table.  I’m sure you’re all familiar with character actors.  And obviously you know the leading role type actor.  But Mr. Kind brings us a kind of actor that I like to call “filler actor.”   What does this mean exactly?  Well a filler actor is the kind of guy who doesn’t really matter much in the grand scheme of things but he’s a good guy to have around.

In fact, he/she is kind of necessary because with out him/her you might have too much star power and not enough diversity in a film.  Kind always seems to deliver in that role.  In particular I liked him in Vice Versa and Nothing in Common.  But Kind has been around.  It’s mostly TV now but the dude has 125 credits to his name.

And I’ll bet you didn’t know his name but you knew his face right?  A clip of kind after the jump….
