My favorite category on The Rewatchables is the Joey Pants award, just because it's an excuse to talk about character actors, which is more fun to me than hearing the umpteenth time about the biggest stars. Anyway, the hosts usually are tough to crack on who qualifies for the award, which will led to confusion on who's an actual "that guy." With Chris and Sean, I trust them to be too much of film geeks that all "that guys" character players would be somebody to them, as CR will point out they had a leading role in a small tv drama from 1985. Bill on the other hand, being Mr Starfucker, seems less genuine when pointing out actors as not being that guy. I never really buy Bill Simmons knowing all the bit players too well until he just digs into the IMDB resume and concludes they are disqualified for the award because he happens to know their name now.
They don't have a criteria for what disqualified actors for the consideration, if it's based on name recognition or award consideration. They should have a basic criteria of how famous an actor could be for consideration, as in this actor could walk into a bar without anyone recognizing them or have the local person go "hey I know you from somewhere." Does anyone agree with me on this category? Even though I know the actors mention they'd sometimes oversell how famous the actor in question is. No Sean, Victor Argo is definitely a "that guy" to non-hardcore Scorsese fanatics in the world.
