The Nerd with angry Mail Order Bride in
Dodgeball

Always the stapler guy in Office Space. It's been way too long since I've seen that movie.

More Cowbell said...

Office Space.

just sayin' said...

E. The Cyclops in "Oh Brother Where Art Thou".

sandybrook said...

B wins

CeeCeeSays said...

B!!

just sayin' said...

*O Brother.....

Alexandria said...

E: That guy who hires Woody Harrelson in "No Country for Old Men"

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

That was John Goodman. Root played the blind radio station manager “it was a powerful aiiiiiirrrrrrr”

AngryLiberalKTS. said...

All of the above

Brayson87 said...

I would say Office Space, but I watched most of NewsRadio and he was much more hilarious in that :)

Geeljire said...

B is the patron saint of every cubicle drone out there, even if you think you're hot shit making 6 figures worth of paper coupons.

Thia said...

There can only be one right answer to this. B. Milton!

just sayin' said...

I forgot it was Goodman's character who was the Cyclops...can't remember what character from Homer's Odyssey the blind DJ represented....

just sayin' said...

He was Homer himself!

Amartel said...

Judge Mike "The Hammer" Reardon on "Justified." This guy's everywhere.
Thank God for the character actors.

Jimmy James, author of the autobiographical book, Macho Business Donkey Wrestler.

You all really should watch News Radio sometime. Best sitcom of all time.

Kevin said...

Guy in Dodgeball (or B, definitely B)

just sayin' said...

Speaking of ubiquitous actors, is anyone else at all freaked out (a little bit) that Michael Stuhlbarg seems to be in every new movie and tv series lately?

bdm said...

I’d say it has to be his iconic star turn as Raymond, a hunting store owner involved in illegal gun trading, in the 1993 In the Heat of the Night episode "A Love Lost".

I love Wikipedia!

Geeljire said...

I heard he hits the couch in Narnia

Geeljire said...

(He was really good as Arnold Rothstein in the tolerable parts of Boardwalk Empire though)

StewMcG said...

B (although he was great in Dodgeball, as well.)

Newbomb said...

A. NewsRadio was the best.

Dena said...

I thought Barry was pretty good! My first thought was A, NewsRadio.

pwal said...

News Radio, although I would say Bill Deutrive on King of the Hill.

cheesegrater15 said...

Yes.

.robert said...

News Radio guy.

VDOVault said...

A) because I'm officially an elder (at 49)

Spider Rico said...

Stapler...but you could go back to a nice little scene (his first film) in Crocodile Dundee 2

A dumb idiot said...

Newsradio all the way

NoNotThatBeth said...

Y'all forgot Bill Deauterive on "King of the Hill".
And of course, B.

B626 said...

The principal in Buffy the Vampire Slayer
DEEEtention!

;) said...

The voice of Bill Dauterive and Buck Strickland on King of the Hill.

chickensashimi said...

News Radio
Guy with Stapler
The Man in the High Castle
King of the Hill.

Never saw the other two.

David Howes said...

How about all four and include the Washington Spy series on AMC?
(He portrayed the guy who organized and ran Washington's spy network during the Revolutionary War.)

cheesegrater15 said...

Also, the blind radio station owner in Oh, Brother, Where Art Thou?. Love this guy.

Disparaging Remark said...

Jimmy James!

Uhhhh... said...

I saw him in Get Out and immediately thought of O Brother Where Art Thou

Cail Corishev said...

I'd say he was the eccentric millionaire in Northern Exposure. Then my friend would say, "No, that was Barry Corbin." Then I'd say, "Oh, right, I always get that mixed up." Then I'd go with A for people my age and B for younger.

Count Jerkula said...

Bag man in Boardwalk Empire.

Undercover_LBD said...

In order: B, D and A.

Seachica said...

Jimmy James from Newsradio, the funniest sitcom of all time. Maybe not greatest, -- it didn't break down barriers like MASH or All in the Family or Cosby Show. But for pure humor, it doesn't get better.

Nonya Bidness said...

Yes, exactly! Whenever we saw him in anything else, hubby and I would be like "Jimmy James!"

That whole cast was great (except Joe Rogan). Now knowing what a prick Andy Dick was, it's hard for me to enjoy it nearly as much. But it was brilliant.

Steven Root is so underrated, he is amazingly talented!!

MichiganMama59 said...

They guy in Seinfeld who worked at the bank who paid Kramer for not getting a "hello"

PotPourri said...

Office Space Red Stapler guy, but they all work for me.

Terry Teratoma said...

I answer Bill Dauterive.

SteveD said...

Is Dan Schneider going down? Nickelodeon just cut ties with him.

Aragon64 said...

Jimmy James from News Radio.
I still remember the goofy episode wherein one character insisted on knowing what the rules of management were, despite being warned that they didn't want to know. And Jimmy James tormented her the whole episode trying to teach her the rules of management.

AVG said...

Jimmy James, period.

Janet Young said...

E. Bill from King of The Hill

JoeyJoeJoe said...

A

Madame_ovary said...

Heeeey Milton, yeeaah I'm gonna need yooouuu to go ahead and move your desk to warehouse B.

Dirty Dan said...

The blind radio station owner in o brother where art thou.
