He looks familiar to me too. I think the best bet would be to do IMDB searches on all the actors listed at the end on the Psychics DVD that "Rainboy" is featured on and see if any matches come up. Trying to find out the identities of actors in UM segments is often as difficult as trying to solve some of the cases .

Stephanie Weir was on one of the ghost segments. She is best known for her roles such as Dot, Mrs Campbell, Doctor Kylie, Muriel Westig, and Angela Wright on MadTV as well as guest spots on shows like Flashforward.

I was never aware of Stephanie Weir being in a segment about ghosts, but she was definitely in the Neil Jennings segment as one of the hotel residents. Weir is originally from Odessa, TX, where the Jennings murder took place.

I remember seeing the episode with Matthew McConaughey when it first aired nearly 20 years ago. Even though it was around 1990, we still had a console tv!

Anyway, the first thing I noticed was that he was very unattractive, to the point that his looks distracted from the segment. I was surprised that he didn't just fade into obscurity after that tv appearance, but actually became an international sex symbol.

On the episode about two French sailors on the run (Laurent Hernas and Yves Emmanuel Pain), one of the sailors is played by who I was almost certain was Benito Martinez (Acevada of "The Shield," if you've ever seen this wonderful show). He's not listed in the credits and it's not on his IMDB page, but it looks just like him, for what it's worth.

Oops! That's what I meant. I thought it was about ghosts. Sorry!

The actor who played Donnie Darko's father was one of the members of the wacko religious cult in the episode about Nelson DeCloud and the DeCloud family...

Ah, I watched that segment not too long ago and thought it might be him! That would be Holmes Osborne, whose got quite an extensive list of credits:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0651660/

Here are two new additions from the Lost Loves segment about that Russian lady, Farezat Abdokov, who was looking for her sister.

Russian actor Boris Krutonog, who's had roles in many Hollywood films and TV shows:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0472928/

Canadian actor Allan Kolman, who's best known for having parasites almost pop out of his stomatch in David Cronenberg's film "Shivers":

I have often wondered, why is it they only give the names of a couple of actors on each UM episode? It seeks almost random as to which ones they give credit to. Anyone know why?

I believe I heard that they were only obligated to give credit to actors who were official members of the Screen Actors Guild. So many of the actors they used were local, non-professional actors who were found when they held open auditions at the location they just happened to filming from, so there was no obligation to give them a credit. Even Matthew McConaughey was found in that fashion since he just happened to be a local kid who was looking to break into acting when they were filming the Edward Harold Bell story in Texas.

I've definitely seen the guy who played "Wadada" before. He's been a bit player in several movies, and I'm pretty sure he was even in Michael Jackson's "Black or White" video.

That would be Jeffrey Anderson-Gunter, who's got a pretty extensive filmography:

Daniel Dae Kim (Jin in Lost and Chin Ho on Hawaii Five-O) was on UM, in the episode about the Korean man whose wife was murdererd.

Found another one: in the "Mary Celeste" segment, the role of Captain David Morehouse is played by Larry Blamire. He's best known as the director/writer/star of a personal fave of mine, "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra", the hilarious spoof of low-budget 1950s sci-fi B-movies.
