To Ze Lumberyaaaaard!

Used here under the fair use doctrine for commentary purposes.

Maybe he got tired of being recognized as Inspector Kemp. Or Marshal Wooly Billy Hitchcock. Or Franz Liebkind.

Kenneth Mars. Just another example of the kind of character actors I like. Why? Because he becomes the character, as all great character actors do. Too many actors simply play themselves in whatever role they might find themselves in, without giving much thought as to how their character might act, or think, or behave. Seen one Meg Ryan or Tom Hanks movie and you’ve pretty much seen them all. The character actors around them, however, are the ones I remember the most.
