That Guy Actor of the Week: Raymond J. Barry
I didn’t realize that Raymond J. Barry was over 70 years old but I guess it makes sense. It feels like he’s had white hair nearly his entire acting career. Many of you will recognize Barry but probably didn’t know his name hence why he’s up here.
Barry’s not one of those guys that will really shoot out at you too often. He’s not that funny and doesn’t really capture the screen all that much. However, he’s an extremely solid actor who has a great presence in all the movies he’s been in. Personally I liked him in Born on the 4th of July and Hotel California.
Lately Barry’s mostly been on television shows but he’s still out there doing his thing.
Fast forward to the 5th minute. This is a classic scene.
He’s also Raylan’s dad on Justified. Surprised Paul hasn’t got you watching that yet!
Yeah Nat, watch Justified. Starts slow, but it’s the shit.
I see y’all beat me to it, but he is great on Justified.
I really like him as Arlo Givens in Justified. I think it suits his crotchety oldman-ness to a T.
The wrong son died!
