"We’ve been watching you for a long time … you and your friends … Frightening people with foolish talk about the Army and experiments. You’re in over your head, Mr. Singer. Men drown that way."

Almost a noir dialogue.

Again, I have yet to identify this actor, but I’d like to.

Jacob’s Ladder (1990) directed by Adrian Lyne, based on a screenplay by Bruce Joel Rubin and starring Tim Robbins, Elizabeth Peña, and Danny Aiello.

"Mr. Singer. What an appropriate name for someone who can’t keep his mouth shut."

I don’t know who this actor is, but I am sure I’ve seen him around. Anyone know?

Hey, it’s that guy!
On the left is Manning Redwood, portraying J. Washburn Stoker in Jeeves and Wooster (1991) alongside the inimitable Stephen Fry as Jeeves. I had one of those familiar “Hey, it’s that guy!” moments, where I was sure he was one of the parents in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and also Janet’s father in Shock Treatment (1981).
Well, I was half-right. Manning Redwood was indeed Harry Weiss in Shock Treatment. But Mr. Beauregard, the character I was thinking of in Willy Wonka, was played by one Leonard Stone. But there is a link: Stone also played an uncreditied psychiatrist in Shock Treatment  —  but this Shock Treatment was the 1964 film starring Roddy McDowall and Lauren Bacall — also Ossie Davis, who once played a character named Chuffy, which is also the name of Bertie’s friend in this episode of Jeeves and Wooster. Davis is definitely another “Hey, it’s that guy!” actor. Check that rundown on his imdb page.

"Singer. Jacob Singer."

"I’m sorry, but… there’s no record of a Jacob Singer in our files."

Unless my eyes deceive me, that is Big Ethel (Suzanne Shepherd).

The Cowboy and the Frenchman (1988) David Lynch directing.  Starring Harry Dean Stanton, Jack Nance,Tracy Walter, three of my favorite “Hey, it’s that guy” actors. And a Frenchman (Frederic Golchan).

And bless my soul, imdb verifies: that’s Michael “Deputy Hawk” Horse of Twin Peaks as the Indian.

This is part of the “Les Français Vus Par" ("The French as Seen by…") series of shorts.

I find it amusing when something on YouTube is described as “rare.” Pretty much as soon as it is put online, it ceases to be rare.

(Still have a bunch of Jacob’s Ladder in the queue, coming up soon. Then Angel Heart. And then I am thinking some Twin Peaks? )
