That Guy Actor of the Week: David Huddleston

Everyone knows David Huddleston as the big Jeffrey Lebowski in The Big Lebowski.   At least that’s what I recognized him from.   But little do people of this generation know that Huddleston has appeared over 140 times in movies and television.  Most notably (at least to me) was in the movie Blazing Saddles.   Hell I almost didn’t recognize the guy when he had hair.  Who knew he was in a Mel Brooks movie?  Awesome.

Plus you gotta give props to any man that played Santa Claus in a movie that starred Dudley Moore.  In any event, Huddleston is over 80 years old and the man deserves credit.

Check out a clip of him after the jump…..


Chewing out the dude!

  1. Didn’t realize that was him in Blazing Saddles.

    I’ll always remember him as the head of P.I. Smith and Sons (P.I.S.S – they made urinal cakes) from Joe’s Apartments.

    “Did your mom ever give you a sponge bath?”

    Also he was great in the Always Sunny Christmas special.
