Sanderson, William
Best known to me as Larry from Newhart. I also know him from Blade Runner; and Bar Karma; and a bit of voice work. Oh, also I have long had this crazy theory that he's an immortal, and could probably explain the truth about the disappearance of the Roanoke Colony....

Sandler, Adam
I know him from Saturday Night Live, and Happy Gilmore, and The Wedding Singer, and Punch Drunk Love, and The Waterboy, and Little Nicky, and Just Go With It. And he appeared as himself in an episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. And he did voice work in Hotel Transylvania. Oh, and I have several of his CDs. Savage, Fred
Best remembered for
The Wonder Years, but there's also Working, and The Wizard, and The Princess Bride, and Austin Powers in Goldmember. And hey, IMDb just reminded me of the existence of Crumbs. I could have easily gone the rest of my life without ever thinking of that show again. And after writing this, I probably will. Anyway, he's also done some voice work (including Noah in Generator Rex, ftw? I never woulda guessed that). Schultz, Dwight
He played Howling Mad Murdock, my favorite character on
The A-Team. I also really liked him as Barclay in several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Also there was a radio production of War of the Worlds. I've probably seen him in some guest roles that I don't remember, and he's done some voice work. Schwarzenegger, Arnold
I know him from the
Terminator movies; and Total Recall; True Lies; and Last Action Hero; and Jingle All the Way; and Batman & Robin (though he is so not who I would have picked to play Mr. Freeze); and Around the World in 80 Days; and a small role in The Expendables. Scolari, Peter
I know him best from
Newhart; but there was also Honey, I Shrunk the Kids: The TV Show; and Camp Nowhere; and The Ultimate Christmas Present; and a recurring role on Gotham. And probably some other stuff I don't really remember. Segel, Jason
I know him from
Freaks & Geeks, and How I Met Your Mother, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and The Muppets, and he voiced Vector in Despicable Me. Shadix, Glenn
I know him from
Beetlejuice, and an episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and a small role in Heathers. And he did voice work in The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Teen Titans, etc. Shatner, William
First and foremost, he is Kirk, from Star Trek. There's also Boston Legal; and Invasion Iowa; and a couple eps of The Twilight Zone (including "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet," which is one of the more memorable episodes of the entire series); and he played Juliet's dad in a couple episodes of Psych. Also voice work in an ep of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Oh, and of course he's done plenty of commercials (most notably for Priceline). And there's his (in)famous rendition of "Rocket Man," which is truly incredible. And I also enjoyed his rendition of "Common People." Anyway, no doubt I've seen him in other stuff, I dunno... Sheppard, Mark
A couple eps of
Firefly, several eps of the reimagined Battlestar Galactica, a few eps of Dollhouse, a few eps of Warehouse 13, a bunch of episodes of Supernatural, possibly some other stuff, I don't really remember. Shimerman, Armin

I mainly think of him as the guy from the
Farmers commercials, but I also know him for the Spider-Man movies, The Cider House Rules, Juno, New in Town, a small role in Post Grad, Jennifer's Body, What Lives Inside, and some voice work. And I'm sure I've seen him in things from which I don't remember him. Slater, Christian
He was pretty cool in
Heathers, and Pump Up the Volume, and Breaking In. Decent in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and The Wizard, and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Okay in Interview with the Vampire. And he voiced Pips in FernGully: The Last Rainforest. And I'm sure I've seen him in some other things that I don't remember as well. Um... and of course he's famous for talking like Jack Nicholson. (My alter ego Captain Grey would probably tell you he's literally a clone of Nicholson.) But that's a good thing. Smith, Kurtwood
I mainly know him from
That '70s Show, but the first thing I clearly remember him from is Big Wave Dave's. There's also season 2 of Agent Carter, and voice work on The Zeta Project, etc. And I've undoubtedly seen him in various other things that I've forgotten. Sorbo, Kevin

And some voice work. Strong, Danny
I know him from
Buffy the Vampire Slayer; and Gilmore Girls; and Shriek If You Know What I Did Last Friday the 13th; and a very small role in Pleasantville; and Sydney White. He's also a screenwriter on various things, as well as co-creator of Empire. Suchet, David

He was good in Keen Eddie. Didn't much care for the way he was used in Boston Legal, but he had his moments. He was decent in Human Target. And there was Crisis.

Let's see. There's
The Dead Zone, Batman Returns, Pulp Fiction, Sleepy Hollow, Man on Fire, Hairspray, Peter Pan Live!, and I feel like I should've seen him in other stuff. Um, he guest hosted Saturday Night Live a few times maybe. And there was the music video for Fatboy Slim's "Weapon of Choice." And an ad for Kia Optima. And... you know, there's just the sort of general concept of "Christopher Walken"... I mean, in some ways he's not so much a person as an idea, you know what I mean? Whatever.... Warner, David
I know him from
Time Bandits; and Tron; and Star Trek VI; and A Christmas Carol; and Titanic; and Wing Commander; and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II; and some voice work. I've probably seen him in some other stuff... though I think I sometimes confuse him with Alan Rickman... Watanabe, Ken
