I was posting something else and thought of another actor who is a perfect candidate for this thread.
He had a pretty major role in the Star Wars saga (was anybody else in five of the movies?) and I don’t remember seeing him in anything else. IMDb lists quite a few roles for him. The only one I’m sure I’ve seen is Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, but obviously he didn’t make much of an impression.
I like BBT as an actor. And I really like Sling Blade the movie (and the character). It’s just that regardless of how many times I see the movie, I can’t see Billy Bob Thornton. If Sling Blade the character were to walk into my office right now, I wouldn’t recognize him as BBT.
I think I may have mentioned this in a thread about a year ago, but after my wife and I watched the “John Adams” HBO miniseries on DVD, I went to IMDB to look up Stephen Dillane, who played Thomas Jefferson in the series, because I thought he did a fantastic job. It looks like he has a pretty extensive resume, but nothing I recognized or would have seen him in before.
