Alright first the question than the explanation. “Has any TV series besides Three’s Company used the same actor repeatedly in different roles as they did with Jeffrey Tambor?”
(told you it needed an explanation)
I read this on jumptheshark.com, the other day and decided to post it here. On Three’s Company, Jeffrey Tambor makes several (many?) appearances in various guest roles but always as a different character.
I remember watching the series as a kid (as did most of you all whether you’re going to admit it or not) and always thought: “Gee… Not THAT guy again??!”
So, the question what series regularly used the same actor with various, changing roles as TC did with JT?
And now just a few qualifiers.
I am not talking about using one of the lead actors and throwing make-up on him/her and having that actor play a dual role strictly as a one time shot. The Brady Bunch did this as did Gilligan’s Island with varying degrees of incredulity…hmmm… go figure.
Nor is this the same as the multiple roles played by Martin Lawrence on his self-named and overall decent sitcom.
So, how 'bout it?
