You can’t win the NBA Title without a reliable and competent bench, and you can’t make a brilliant movie or television show without a few character actors who can be relied upon to steal scenes and perhaps more importantly, go toe-to-toe with the biggest names in Hollywood. Often referred to as "that-guys", they occasionally get their moments in the sun. Hell, the Internet has more than a few lists entirely devoted to them, and today, we’re going to use them to test your movie knowledge.
