    Dang - can't believe I forgot this one from TV:

    Robert Conrad - both as Pappy Boyington & Jim West - ya gotta love any show where they spend at least 1 entire scene per episode on a really poorly choreographed fist fight!
    Yeah, I always liked Wild, Wild West, but never could stand Robert Conrad.

    One of his all-time "great" moments.

    Can't believe I forgot Gay Perry and Verbal Kint.

    I was always kind of disappointed in Memento. I liked it, but it always felt like a great idea that they didn't quite execute.

    Some more:

    TV:
    Bubbles - Andre Royo (The Wire)

    Movies:
    CD "Charlie" Bales - Steve Martin (Roxanne)
    Hedley Lamarr - Harvey Korman (Blazing Saddles)
    Bart - Cleavon Little (Blazing Saddles)
    Jim - Gene Wilder (Blazing Saddles)
    Taggart - Slim Pickens (Blazing Saddles)
    Frau Blucher - Cloris Leachman (Young Frankenstein)
    Stanley Tibbets - Dudley Moore (Foul Play)
    Grover Muldoon - Richard Pryor (Silver Streak)

    Did you know you can get unlimited refills on any drink you want at Burger King?...and it's free.

    I'm just gonna go ahead and say every single character to ever appear on AD with the exception of Charlize Theron's character is an all-timer.

    I always thought his best part was as Ray Nicolette in Jackie Brown.
