I agree with you. But while we are on that subject, Angel Martin has that Angel beat out six ways from Sunday.
At the tone leave your name and message, and I'll get back to ya! "Hey Jimmy, can I borrow 20? Got a sure thing on "Loser" in the 5th!

I have changed the description of the poll to this....The actor Tracey Walter Has had an interesting career portraying slightly offbeat characters. What's your favorite Tracey Walter character name? In case your wondering, Tracey is best remembered, as the creepy man in the bar, that gives Erin Brockovich, all those files on P.G.&E. , and his role in Batman (1989), as Bob the Goon. After voting, please discuss here.

That actor has 99 film and 71 roles under his IMDb belt.  You picked some esoteric films (including ones that it appears he's only an extra?).  What is/was your methodology in picking these movies to put on your list?

After all, the 14 you listed ... don't even have his name featured in the top actors so... at best his small roles aren't even considered supporting in these films.

At least, you should put the name of his character in the text of each of the list options to help remind voters of what character they would be considering to vote for.

I plus that: some of his most known roles are not there and he was in some VERY popular movies and cult classics alike.

Hi Nikolay. The list was about the unusual "Character Names" only. Not his portrayals.
Thanks.

Hi,

Are we supposed to vote for our favorite character, or favorite character name? If it's the names, may I suggest changing the title to:
Favorite Tracey Walter Character Name

Right. Bob the Goon even had an action figure of him printed and distributed. That's big. He should be included in the PS list.

Was debating on an inclusion. Was hoping for SOMEONE to sway me. Done Deal.
Its being installed. Just did not want too many to pick from.
Will probably do a role poll later. But it will have Tracey and another 11 actors. The Creepy Dozen.
Stay tuned!

Some corrections:
The actor Tracey Walter has had an interesting career portraying slightly offbeat characters. What's your favorite Tracey Walter character name?
In case your wondering, Tracey is best remembered as the creepy man in the bar that gives Erin Brockovich all those files on P.G.&E.

You can link his name by doing this: [link=nm0910145]

i love tracey walter, and any remembrance of him is o.k. by me...but i think more people remember him as bob the goon from 'batman' than from 'erin brokovich'...(i even forgot that he was in that film...then again...i'm not a big julia roberts fan, so i only saw it once...)...

but like i said...any way that he is remembered is very cool indeed...

Thanks rocky-o
Some folks had to point out my "Omission" of Tracey's, "Bob The Goon". I just did not remember him in that role. He just looks like a stalker! It was great casting on the casting directors part for putting Tracey in that role in Erin Brockovich.

I have many times watched something, and was so impressed by that actor, that I would look them up. Then sometimes to my amazement they will have been a character actor for 20+ years. The "good" character actors are the ones that are more like chameleons. You don't realize that it's that guy until after about 2-3 minutes, and you're going, "I know I know that guy"!

CliffJ,

Please use lower case for "has" in this sentence in your intro. Please change:
The actor Tracey Walter Has had an interesting career portraying slightly offbeat characters.

To:
The actor Tracey Walter has had an interesting career portraying slightly offbeat characters.

Note: I used bold to make it easier for your to see, not to have it used in the correction.

I've always thought this actor brought a lot to the films he was in; it's nice to see a poll focused on him. May I suggest a few edits to the intro.? (They're below in bold -- I omitted three commas that were between the words in bold text. They're not necessary and distract away from the otherwise very good introduction.)
