So you're watching Full Metal Jacket and there he is that guy! What's his name? You know, that guy who always plays a drill sergeant! Or you're watching Fast Times at Ridgemont High and there's another one that creepy science teacher! That guy always plays a creepy somebody! What's his name?

We're talking about R. Lee Ermey and Vincent Schiavelli, of course and you can read all about them in Hey! It's That Guy!, a guide to identifying 'famous' character actors and actresses. From Steve Buscemi and Philip Seymour Hoffman to J. T. Walsh, Judy Greer, and Amy Aquino, they're all here. You may not know their names, but you'll certainly recognize their faces!

Written by Tara Ariano and Adam Sternbergh (founders of the popular entertainment Web site Fametracker.com), Hey! It's That Guy! features a full-color photo section for easy identification. Just flip to the actor of your choice, and you'll be directed to an informative and irreverent biography. Organized by 'Habitat' and complete with extensive cross-indexing so you can find an actor by TV show, movie, or character type, Hey! It's That Guy! salutes the unsung heroes of the entertainment industry.

User Review  - Marshaferz - Goodreads

Fun bit of fluff, and a good addition to any pop-culture-phile's bookshelf. Scarily, I was reading this the night that Vincent Schiavelli died. Read full review

A bit too modern in scope for me- more for the VH1 generation. Read full review
