Lists by pgrass13
I do not guarantee the accuracy of this list, if a source referenced them as such I took them at their word.
There seem to be a lot of porn stars that have a lot of credits I have marked them with an * so as to distinguish fro the real actors. I list the number of credits last I checked. Voice actors also tend to accumulate a lot of credits. And counting means actor is still alive and active. (accurate as of Dec. 1, 2015)
This is a list of Short actors.
This list may be a bit biased since women tend to be shorter than men, so I am trying to find the best way to fix this. It is possible I could move the women to a separate list. This used to be only those under 5'0" now I am including those who are 5'0" even.
These are actors and and other entertainment people who lived over 100. There was some dispute as to Robert Earl Jones (the father of James Earl Jones) age at death some placing him over 100 but now it is generally accepted he was 96. These are updated as of. July 2015 (Keep an Eye on Kirk Douglas)
These actors voice characters in multiple Pixar movies
Also Fire Marshall Bill as I couldn't find a character page for him.
Also, Louie Anderson, tom Waits and a bit of Jack Nicholson and Christopher Walken
Not counting unofficial productions or video games (I am counting the Animated series as official). I count the episodes they actually appear in and am discrediting any credit only credits.
Of note, Iron Eyes Cody claimed to be but was in fact not.
Some of them I have met face to face others I have seen in person but not talked to directly (the criteria for this list is they must have played at least one role not as or appearances on several different shows and playing themselves rather than an actual role doesn't count)
Joe DeRita of the Three stooges and Walt Disney and Christopher Lee come close.
Most of them ended up getting roles in Star Trek, just not the ones they originally auditioned for
this is a list of actors turned politicians/ Politicians turned actors
While I was initially focusing on American politicians, I have now included others as well.
I am also now including actors who ran for office but didn't win, yet were notable. I am also only counting more people with more than 1 or 2 acting credits, so john McCain's appearance in 24 doesn't count.
Sherlock Holmes is close to making this list
The exception is where it is deliberate intended that they were a teenage parent.
They can be either 15 years or more younger or older. Also an actor playing a character throughout their life does count for this list.
Most of Hollywood is quite liberal but there are a few who are not. I will also include Libertarians and note it as they are also a minority in Hollywood. Pretty much anyone who is not your typical Hollywood liberal and so it includes Religious Conservatives, Libertarians, neo-cons and anything in between. It is no accident that I didn't include Arnold Schwarzenegger.
I honestly think the humor wouldn't translate well but just for fun.
These are people who are known for careers in both music and acting, but not necessarily those who are known for musicals but don't have music unassociated with acting.
These are people with accents that don't quite match anything.
And a few other famous people who look like them
Meaning the older actor plays the younger sibling. This does not count prequels or flashbacks.
This includes actors who look much younger than they are or have looked the same for a long time. This also includes actors who are now dead but aged well in their life.
These actors frequently play many different roles on Star Trek
Who has been married the most, here are who I have found.
For the time being I will set the minimum for this list at 5.
Have you ever heard someone's voice on the radio or in a cartoon (where they were using their real voice) and then been surprised to see what they looked like? Or even just see someone who's voice just doesn't seem to fit. This is a list of some of those in my opinion.
These celebrities were married the longest time, at least 30 years
A version more true to the games than the one they made
IMDB has a number of non-humans listed as actors, while it does have animals there is at least some sense to that, for now, I am focusing on those that are more inanimate objects.
These actors could have played the candidates.
I realize there is an exorbitant amount of The Office cast members here but they just seem to resemble the candidates.
If they made a cartoon of the three stooges today
If a cartoon were made today
Weather by birth or injury
These characters are known for wearing a mask most of the time.
These are shows or movies that are amazingly similar and borrow a lot of elements. (sometimes it could be mutual if they are concurrent long running shows) Pretty much anything by the Asylum is a rip-off but that is deliberate and obvious.
These are actors that were perfect for the roles they were chosen for. Most of these are characters that had been established elsewhere or historic figures.
These are the movies that originated or revolutionized effects or methods that had not been used effectively before.
I am debating weather or not to include Mark Hamill and Nick Nolte, on the one hand they don't particularly look older than their their age on the other hand there is still something not quite right.
Taking place several years after anime.
These actors often lay authority type figures.
As I couldn't find a character page for him I will mention the Pokemon Ditto as well as Jack-Jack Parr.
For this list I am only including characters that can transform into a variety of things and not just one or two other forms ie Vampire, werewolf Transformer. I also am not including size shifters.
These are actors with pilot's licenses
For now I am excluding voice actors because of the nature of voice acting allowing that to occur on a regular basis.
These are also actors who have done it on more than one occasion.
Even as people get older, not everyone has perfectly even white hair, these are the actors who have it and proudly sport(ed) it.
These are actors who o impressions of people
These actors improvise and ad lib in movies and shows they are in, I am not counting shows like Whose Line where it is all about improvising. It can sometimes work great to justify a mistake without having to do a retake. Generally I am limiting the list to more people who do it more than just a single isolated incident.
I don't think it should be recast but this is who they should do were they to cast it today. I was thinking about this while watching this especially how Christopher Lloyd's performance reminded me of Kramer, and I already consider Jim Carrey to be similar to Jack Nicholson. Also, all these actors that need to can play crazy.
They wrote the book recently
If a movie were made about major media pundits.
Bad things happen to people who have been associated with the Muppets, except Frank Oz, who has found great success. This list includes those who have died under 65 or have just had bad luck. I am including Sesame Street ion this list.

I have noticed that at least in the first three Star Trek movies, a large number of the actors outside the main cast tended to die young (before 65)
These are celebrities that look like aliens
On Madtv Bobby Lee was their token Asian.
A number of TV shows and movies have one major female character amongst a bunch of men.
These characters usually have their face at least partially covered in some way. I am not including super heroes in costume.
Sometimes a TV show will kill off or otherwise get rid of their main character. this list does not include characters that left that are important but don't have top billing. Also, I probably won't include soap operas.
Telepathic, telekinetic, psychic and empathic characters.
This is a list of immortals or near immortals.
I thought it would be cool to make a show based off of the song Piano man, however it would probably be a lot like cheers.

Or Triplets of Quadruplets
From both movies and TV shows
I also will mention Sergeant Paul Jackson from the video game Call of Duty Modern Warfare.
Although common in the early years of cinema and radio it has fallen out of use. It can be seen as a sophisticated accent that Brides the gap between Britain and America.
This refers to people who are from outside the United States who are able to perform a believable American accent.
There are a few actors who have done it but are not entirely convincing such as Ewen McGeregor, Craig Ferguson and Eddie Izzard.
many TV shows and some movies have characters that always seem to have bad luck.
This is about those characters that always seem to come out of a difficult situation out of sheer dumb luck rather than any specific skill, or characters that have come very close to death but somehow keep escaping.
These characters typify the typical patriotic American.
this is not a list of merely actors that are buff, but those that have made a living bodybuilding outside of acting.

These are some of the most memorable characters that were made by manipulation by humans. Some have eventually upgraded to CGI but the original was a puppet.
