Steesh Look-a-Likes: Conrad Waldorf & Bill Erwin


This may be a little bit of a stretch, but whenever I see either of these guys I think of the other.


Louis Zorich – “Steeshes is Steeshes”

Louis Zorich Mustache Pete MuppetsManhattan

Louis Zorich is an actor, probably most recognizable to you for playing Pete in The Muppets Take Manhattan or Paul Reiser’s dad in Mad About You, depending on if you like great movies or bad TV shows. Here’s Pete giving Kermit the Frog a life lesson:

Richard Kiel – Mr. Larson in Happy Gilmore


Richard Kiel is a very large actor, I think that’s why his shirt is so funny. You see, guns do kill people, in fact they do so all the time and it’s very tragic. However, because this gentleman is so terribly gigantic, it makes it seem like he is more powerful than the guns. Movies and fun!!!!

Jack Wallace – Steeshie Nights 3


Jack was mainly in the background of Boogie Nights. With the extensive research I’ve conducted,  it seems as if Jack was a theater guy in Chicago, who has now appeared in about 90 movies and tv shows. An interesting factoid about Jack is that from eyebrows to chin he resembles Mr. Belvedere.

Joseph Maher – Farfel’s owner on Seinfeld

Gavin Farfel Seinfeld

I have an ever-changing list of names on my phone of men with mustaches and sometimes women I think should have a mustache. Joseph Maher was listed simply as “Farfel’s owner – Seinfeld.”

According to his IMDB page, he did quite a bit more than that, with a career spanning from 1958-1999.  I will, however, choose to remember him as the drunk with the crazy dog.

Stephen Root

Milton Office Space

Stephen Root is one of the best character actors around. He is listed in 171 movies/tv shows since 1988, many of which are actually things you would want to watch. I don’t care who you are, but if you don’t like Milton from Office Space, you have problems.
