I should throw in here that I meant to make clear that 'actor' in this case covered both males and females.

I was listening to an interview on the radio with Ventura after he charged Ryan and the host asked him what he was thinking. Ventura was very self effacing about it and admitted that he wasn't and it wasn't a very good idea. Charging the mound was atypical of his usual on-the-field demeanor.
