If I walked up to you right now and said, “Hey, Colm Feore is signing autographs in the next room,” you’d probably be all like, “what the hell are you doing in my house, bro?” Well first of all, I’m not your friggen bro. But second, you really should know who Colm Feore is. In fact, you probably do know him even if you don’t recognize his name. He’s been in countless movies and television shows. Well, I suppose I could count them, but it’s a long list, spanning over 30 years. In honor of his upcoming role as King Laufey in Thor, we’ve put together a new edition of “Hey, It’s That Guy,” celebrating Feore’s career. Enjoy.

Iron Eagle II – Yuri Lebanov (1988)

Alright, this isn’t the best film in the world, but when you’re five years old, it’s not too bad. And it manages to dumb down Cold War politics to a level that even a five-year old can grasp. In case you can’t tell, I was like five when this movie came out, which also explains why Feore’s Russian accent seemed so genuine to me at the time.

Face/Off (1997)

As you can see from the photo above, Feore had a huge part in Face/Off. OK, maybe it’s a small role, but he does play the doctor in charge of the face-swapping surgery. Without him, there would be no Face/Off. Frankly, that’s a world I don’t want to live in.

Storm of the Century – Andre Linoge (1999)

When Andre Linoge shows up in the town of Little Tall Island during a blizzard, he sure seems to know a lot of the townsfolk’s secrets. That probably has something to do with the fact that he’s actually the demo Legion, and he wants one of the town‘s children as an heir. As far as made for TV movies from the 90′s go, this has to rank on the high end on the list, thanks in no small part to Feore’s performance as Linoge.

The Insider – Richard Scruggs (1999)

In 1999, Feore also played the real-life role of Richard Scruggs, a prominent Mississippi lawyer involved in a law suit against big tobacco. Looking at the picture above, it’s easy to see why he landed the part.

Trudeau – Pierre Elliott Trudeau (2002)

This one goes out to all our Canadian fans (all five of you). In 2002, Feore won a Gemini Award for Best Performance by an Actor for his role as Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau. I know what you’re thinking: “what’s a Gemini Award?” Well, it’s like an Emmy award, but for Canadians. Now you’re thinking, “what’s a prime minister?” Well, he’s sort of lik the American president, except white. Weird, right?

The Chronicles of Riddick – Lord Marshal (2004)

In The Chronicles of Riddick, Feore plays Lord Marshal, leader of the Necromongers, a warlike race attempting to reach the Underverse. As is the case with most warlike movie races, they’ll stop at nothing to reach their goal. Based on this picture alone, it’s clear that you do not want to f*ck with this guy.

Battlestar Galactica” – President Richard Adar (2006)

In “Battlestar Galactica,” President Richard Adar is an important character…for about five minutes. Unfortunately, he is killed off rather quickly when a nuclear apocalypse rips through his home world during a Cylon attack. However, despite his character’s death, Feore did squeeze out some more work via flashbacks.

24” – Henry Taylor (2009)

When the screen writers for 24 were taking their guess as to who would win the 2008 election, clearly they went with Hillary Clinton. That worked out well for Feore, who ended up playing First Husband Henry Taylor. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out so well for his character, who ended up with a murdered son and a divorce.

Hey, It’s That Guy: Stephen Tobolowsky Edition http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hey-its-that-guy-stephen-tobolowsky-edition/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hey-its-that-guy-stephen-tobolowsky-edition/#comments Fri, 15 Apr 2011 01:06:50 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=207212 You instantly recognize him when you see him in a film or on television, but chances are, you don't know his name. Some might view that as an insult, but I think it's more of a testament to his skill as a character actor.

Stephen Tobolowsky is definitely “that guy.” You instantly recognize him when you see him in a film or on television, but chances are, you don’t know his name. Some might view that as an insult, but I think it’s more of a testament to his skill as a character actor. With over 200 films under his belt, Tobolowsky has been a staple in Hollywood for decades. And to celebrate his illustrious career (which after tonight, will include an appearance on “Community”), we’ve compiled five of our favorite Stephen Tobolowsky moments. Enjoy.

Ned Ryerson – Groundhog Day

I bet you didn’t even remember that Tobolowsky was in this Mel Brooks‘ classic. Well, that’s your fault. You shouldn’t drink so much. Watch the hilarious “Stunt Double” scene and see for yourself.

Tor Eckman – “Seinfeld

Tobolowsky has starred in his fair share of movies, but he’s also appeared in some of the most popular shows on television, Seinfeld being perhaps the most popular. In this episode (The Heart Attack), he plays Tor Eckman, Kramer’s holistic healer. It doesn’t end well for George, but then again, nothing does.

Commissioner Hugo Jarry – “Deadwood

This role is a long way from “Groundhog Day.” Tobolowsky plays Commissioner Hugo Jarry, a corrupt public official with a penchant for whores. If you’ve ever wanted to see Tobolowsky blow bubbles at a topless woman’s breasts while yelling “titties,” then I suggest you check this scene out. Sorry we couldn’t supply the video.

Sammy Jenkins – Memento

In Memento, Tobolowsky plays Sammy Jenkins, a character with short-term memory loss. Although his story is told entirely through flashbacks, his role is crucial in explaining the plot of the film. It’s a memorable role in a film about memory. My God! How ironic.
