M. Emmet Walsh (7)

Charles Durning (6)

After the votes/posts by JohnM and Honey I'm thinking of expanding the size of the Final Poll to include all those getting five or more votes rather than being a slave to the arbitrary "maximum 20" I mentioned in the OP.

Should I just go ahead and include this whole group of 35?
