"That Guy" Joins The Express

The That Guy Hall of Fame is an illustrious collection of character actors who possess the innate ability to bring gravitas to any role they play yet remain obscure enough so that the general movie-goer doesn't have the faintest clue who you are.

The archangel of That Guy had to have been
J.T. Walsh, rest his soul. You'll recognize the faces (but not the names) of these classic That Guys as well: Dan Hedaya, William Atherton, James Rebhorn, Jeffrey DeMunn and David Morse (although he seems to be breaking through with recent films).

Well The Express is officially a movie cause joining its cast is one of the That Guy Hall of Famers...Clancy Brown. You know Clancy from Highlander, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, Pet Sematary II, "Carnivale", his guest spots on "Lost" or, perhaps, from his piece de resistance...Captain Byron T. Hadley in The Shawshank Redemption.

Brown will be playing football coach Roy Simmons Sr. in the film. In honor of his casting, let's take a trip down memory lane with Captain Hadley for some of his finest quotes. I think we can assume that nothing like this will make it into The Express...unless I've misunderstood the plot entirely...

If I hear so much as a mouse fart in here the rest of the night I swear by God and sonny Jesus you will all visit the infirmary. Every last motherfucker in here.

What is your malfunction, you fat barrel of monkey spunk?

Uncle Sam. Reaching into your shirt and squeezing your tit till it's purple

Captain Hadley:
What the Christ is this happy horseshit?
: Hey, he took the Lord's name in vain! I'm tellin' the warden!
Captain Hadley:
You'll be tellin' the warden about my baton up your ass!

I'm not gonna to count to three. I'm not even gonna count to one. You will shut the FUCK up or I'll sing you a lullaby!
