If you like looking behind the curtain - this is the movie for you
22 January 2013 | by bill-welshSee all my reviews

If you are one of those people that opens their Christmas gifts early or looks up magic tricks on the internet, you will enjoy this movie.

That Guy...Who Was in That Thing is an in-depth collection of seamless interviews, stories and recollections from an amazing group of true actors, those professionals that have been in everything from stage to television to film. I found their stories fascinating and enjoyed the style where the filmmakers didn't allow you to hear the questions posed - you only heard the principals.

These truly are those guys that you've seen play the president, the politician, the evil boss or the bumbling best friend. You can never quite remember their names, but you remember their faces - and their performances. After watching this, and experiencing their spellbinding tales of "the real Hollywood", I guarantee you will remember their names.
