    Buscemi is out. There was that movie about comics and now Boardwalk Empire. Otherwise, yeah, he'd be perfect. See? It's hard.
    I think you're thinking of American Splendor...with Paul Giamatti. Unless you meant Ghost World, in which, while exceptional, I would not consider Steve Buscemi having a lead role.

    Yeah, was thinking Ghost World. No, I was down with Harvey and would not confuse that. Did you catch his last appearance on Letterman? He was a semi-regular at one time.

    Dennis Farina - no. was a lead on law & order.

    Adam Baldwin - no. Firefly/serenity

    jon voight - no. midnight cowboy, among others.


    What's the status of ensemble casts? Magnolia had lots of great character actors in critical roles.

    My nomination is the greatest character actor evah! Walter Brennan.

    Not the star/lead of either the show or the movie. As far as I can tell, shows don't count.

    I love this guy - he was the go-to "need an asian?" actor for decades. He was also in two of my favorite movies:

    - Played the Mulwray's butler in Chinatown.
    - Played the pilot in The In-Laws - the scene where he is explaining the safety instructions in Chinese to a bewildered Alan Arkin is comedy gold.
