How about Frannk Oz as the booking officer in Trading Places?

Regarding Michael Parks in that film, honestly, I couldn't tell you how big a role he had. I've never seen it and have no interest in seeing it.


Parks character is one time appearance in the movie, the scene is 5 minutes long, Is there a limit to the amount of time a character can appear before they become disqualified as a minor character? I ask genuinely as I don't know if it's supposed to be a one liner type scene or longer...

His character, Esteban, is shown only in this one scene and not referenced anywhere else in the film..

Suzanne Somers in American Graffiti. Her only lines, if indeed she actually spoke them, were on the telephone with Kurt (Richard Dreyfus).

Lois Smith as Dr. Iris Hineman in "Minority Report".

She absolutely steals this scene from Cruise... she has acting chops and she shows it in her only scene in the movie.

He was in The Blues Brothers to, as the property officer at Joliet in the beginning when Jake is being released.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them.'

Frank Puglia, from Casablanca. I love his delivery as a street vendor.

Does Little Nell count as a minor actress?

I rather liked Forrester (“bear skin man”) in the new True Grit.

She's the tap dancer, with the golden hat and red bowtie, in The Time Warp video. Big Grin

Cites for Bissell in film:
Seven Days in May - Sen. Prentice.
Birdman of Alcatraz - Dr. Ellis.
Never So Few - Dr. Alofsen.
The Defiant Ones - Lou Gans.
The Desperate Hours- Agt. Carson.
But Bissell was way more active in TV than film.

Layne Britton billed as 'The Cheese Whiz' in the Blues Brothers 1980. I still laugh at this scene 40 years later.

The actor Ming Lo (who appeared very briefly) delivered one of the funniest lines in the movie "Jarhead." Speaking to a recruit " I'm putting you in Golf Company. It's full of retards and fuck ups. You'll fit right in."
