Bill Simmons (the artist previously known as the Boston Sportsguy) came up with the idea of "that guy" - you know the actor you would see on TV or in a movie and you would know some of his roles but not his name. Well Clancy Brown is a "That Guy" Hall of Famer.
Be honest - did you ever hear of Clancy Brown? Some of you may have said yes but I bet the vast majority said "Clancy who?" Take a look at some of his roles and I'd bet that even if you don't know his name (ergo the "that guy" appellation) you can picture him in your head.
- Viking Lofgren - Bad Boys
- The Kurgan - Highlander
- Captain Byron Hadley - The Shawshank Redemption
- the voice of Mr. Krab - SpongeBob SquarePants
Clancy's had many, many more roles but I think you can see my point. Clancy Brown - That Guy Hall of Famer.
