Jon Polito

Great character actor -- via Vulture. Man, he was in EVERYTHING -- did hundreds of films, TV shows, and Broadway shows, cumulatively. A banner member of the Coen Brothers "stock company," he shone in "Miller's Crossing," "The Big Lebowski," "Barton Fink," and more; he was Crossetti in "Homicide" on TV. He was best known for playing crooks, cops, goombahs and finks, but he could do much more.
