I was watching The Godfather, Part II recently, and I noted the performance of G.D.Spradlin, who plays the corrupt U.S. senator Pat Geary. He was in lots of movies and TV shows, and you recognize his voice the instant you hear it. He was part of Jack Webb’s stable of actors in the 1967 Dragnet series. The real-life Spradlin was a lawyer and politician before he got into acting. Interesting that Webb usually had him playing small-time no-goods.
Who are some others?
Fran Drescher certainly comes to mind. Yeardley Smith too. Gilbert Gottfried’s voice jumps out at you, but it seems a lot of that are mannerisms he uses. I wonder how recognizable he is if he plays it straight.
