Best known from Seinfeld, of course. But there's also Pretty Woman, and Hachi: A dog's tale, and Grow Up, Timmy Turner, and some voice work. Anders, David

The first thing I specifically remember him from is

And he voiced North in Rise of the Guardians. Barrowman, John
Quite liked his work on
Doctor Who and the spin-off series Torchwood. He was also decent on Arrow. I guess there were a few episodes of Desperate Housewives. Basco, Dante

I know him from Wild Wild West; and
Swing Kids; and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein; and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. And he voiced Miguel in The Road to El Dorado. And I must've seen him in some Shakespearean stuff, though I don't really remember. Definitely want to see more of his work though. Braugher, Andre
