Jerry Skinner has started a new series of videos on YouTube, "Hollywood Character Actors." If you've watched Westerns movies or TV series, Strother Martin, L.Q. Jones, Dub Taylor, and Slim Pickens are familiar faces filling out scenes with the Big Stars. Strother Martin of "What we've got here is...failure to communicate" fame was an "overnight success" after many "Oaters," as Western movies were/are called. L.Q. Jones was told that "Justice McQueen Jr." wouldn't go over big in Hollywood, so he "got inventive." Dub Taylor, like the rest of these actors, has toiled away as a sidekick in many Westerns. "Slim Pickens," of "Major 'King' Kong," riding a nuclear bomb like a rodeo horse in "Dr. Strangelove," was a real cowboy on the professional rodeo circuit before "doing it for the cameras." See you at the movies.;)
