Ed Lauter Quotes
Ed Lauter: (His definition of a character actor) Someone who's most usually not an 8x10 glossy. You know, not a Steve Stunning. They're characters.

Ed Lauter: (On his status as a "recognizable" character actor) Recognizable, but sometimes people don't know my name. They'll say, "Oh, yeah! There's that guy! You were in ... Jesus Christ ... you were in ... in ..." So, in a way it's good - and in a way it's bad.
