I like those actors, too, but I can't recall what other segment the Kevin Poulson actor was in?


One doozy of acting:
In the infamous ''I can take this picture or he'll shoot me'' segment, the bank manager is pretty lousy. watch the scene after he presses the alarm and emergency personnel call where he's trying to negotiate with the robber to let him go outside.

Maybe this should go under actors I liked but the bikers in the Gus Hoffman segment when they protested against Gus asking why they were threatening him with chains. One guy does the belligerent, ridiculous whining really well. ''I wasn't blah blah blah'' Helps make those bikers look more ridiculous though, so kudos.


Actors I liked:
I thought the actors who portrayed Dick Hansen and ''Jean'' did a good job.

The guy who played Randall Utterback. I found him creepily believable particularly with his switches between anger and apologies.

That was intentional though. The bank manager was acting very stiff on purpose as an attempt to discreetly notify the 911 dispatcher that there was something wrong. Which there was, but he couldn't tell her that because one of the robbers was standing right there. It's also why he said "I suppose" when she asked him if everything was o.k.

"I can take this picture, but he'll shoot me. But I can take this picture, but he'll shoot me. But I can take this picture, I have to take this picture, but he'll shoot me." One of the greatest lines ever on a UM segment.

Oh, that part I understand. It's just after the phone call I giggle at his delivery.

I know this thread has been dormant for almost a year, but I was watching a couple of segments today that reminded me that the acting on this show could be pretty, well, less than Oscar-worthy.

In the Philip Frazier segment, the actor playing the man who picked up the hitchhiker who was driving Philip's car, and then let him sleep in his house was speaking in an interesting accent. I'm assuming he was trying to sound Canadian, but when he said the word "coffee" it sounded like "caaaaawww-fee." I don't know, it was strange. Not really Canadian sounding to me.

In the Michaela Garecht segment, the little girl playing Michaela went to retrieve her bicycle that was moved next to the abductors car. She runs over, picks up the bike, and then stands there for a split second, obviously waiting for the abductor to grab her. I don't know if the abductor missed his cue or whatever, but it wasn't natural for her to stand there and not immediately take off on her bike.

True -- missed cues were the show's biggest problem. I noticed them increasing in the mid '90s.

That wasn't an actor. That actually WAS Eddie Olsen playing himself.

Oh okay, I thought there was a chance it was him, but for some reason it seemed like a different person in the reenactment. Either way, it wasn't very good acting in much of that segment. I guess there were only a couple real actors, Philip and the hitchhiker.

Best: Pretty much the entire Clifford Sherwood segment. Even the little girl who played the oldest daughter nailed it. The only one who was a little hokey was the hotel clerk was was nonchalantly chewing on peanuts and somehow knew that there was no guest of a certain name without looking. Must've been a small place.

I laugh EVERY time. Even though I really do feel bad for Danny Wheeler that part gets me cracking up. Especially when he grabs the gun and runs off. "I told you long ago it was Bob Bean!" Long ago? You just got the news!

I posted this in the other thread, but the Brad Bishop 'Italy sighting' reenactment just gets me every time.

Quote:
Bishop: *Hobo McBeardalot flies into the room like Kramer flying into Seinfeld's apartment*

Guy: "...*Gasp!* you're Brad Bishop aren't you. Hey, come with me, let's take the bus back to Rome."

Both: *several seconds of blank awkward staring*

Bishop: "OOOOH MY GAAWD! NOOOOO!" *runs away, knocking over EVERYTHING*

"Guy: Brad! Come back! Wait! BRAAAAAAAAD!"
I don't even
