There Is a Staggering 37.4 Percent Chance That This Actor Was in Your Favorite Movie or Television Show
There are a multitude of great character actors, but I don't think any of those great character actors -- with the exception of maybe J.K. Simmons or Stephen Root -- have been in as many great television shows and movies as Gary Cole, who I doubt has ever turned down a job in his life. To his credit, however, Gary Cole never fails to impress, and the man can play damn near any role you can ask of him: Comedic, dramatic, or animated. He is just flat-out phenomenal, but in such an understated way that, with the exception of his scene-stealing in Office Space, you never really think, "Oh yeah! Gary Cole was in that."
The reality is, however, that chances are: Gary Cole was in that.
Here are just a fraction of the roles that Gary Cole has taken over the years, nearly each of which triggered my same response, "Oh, yeah! I totally remember him in that."
A Simple Plan
Curb Your Enthusiasm
The West Wing
King of the Hill
Brady Bunch: The Movie
The Good Wife

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his
Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
