“That Guy” Actor of the Week: Denholm Elliott


Any of you who have watched Trading Places or Indiana Jones films will instantly recognize Denholm Elliot.  Elliot was a known English actor who unfortunately passed away in 1992 at the age of 70.   His work can best be summed up with this quote:

Much-loved character actor who specialised in playing slightly sleazy/slightly eccentric and often flawed upper middle class English gentlemen. His career spanned nearly 40 years, becoming a well-known face both in Britain and in the States.

In any event I just wanted to give a quick shout out to the man as he brought me a lot of laughs, especially as Coleman.
