That Guy Actor of the Week: Austin Pendleton

Remember that bumbling lawyer from the movie My Cousin Vinny who could barely utter a word to the jury?  That’s Austin Pendleton.   Pendleton is the perfect actor if you need some guy that has this weird, goofy undertone to him.   He always plays these characters that both creep you out and make you laugh at the same time.

I’m not sure how else to explain it.    Austin had a pretty good movie run from the late 80s up through the year 2000.  Now he does mostly small spots on television and the occasional voice over or two.

But most of us all know him from My Cousin Vinny.   Anyway, I just wanted Austin to know that we dig his work.  And with over 120 credits to his name, others obviously appreciate him as well.
