    I just rented "Tucker and Dale vs. Evil" and then checked out the Wikipedia page to learn more about the actors. I don't even recognize him, but "Dutch" from DotM was playing Tucker. He's also in the ABC sitcom "Suburgatory."
    Man, this guy can ACT! Each of those characters is so different that I had no idea it was the same person playing them until I looked him up!

    He also does a lot of voice acting as well. He's been Green Arrow on Young Justice, The Flash on Batman the Brave and the Bold, Lonnie on Good Vibes, Officer Elwood on Napoleon Dynamite, and a host of other voice acting jobs. Now if they could just get him as a character on Transformers Prime we'd be one step closer to the cast of Firefly on Transformers Prime.

    The first film I saw him in was A Knight's Tale and I've just liked him as an actor ever since. Playing Shipwreck in The Ballad of G.I. Joe cements him on my cool actors list forever.

    He's amazing in Firefly/Serenity and Dollhouse, and hilarious in Dodgeball. I liked him in V and as the robot in I, Robot also.

    I was thrilled to see him join the Transformers franchise and thought he did just as good a job as he always does.

    He's always ranked pretty high in my mental list of American actors who can do a good English accent since his appearance in Knight's Tale. (And Dodgeball to a lesser extent).

    It's a shame that he was killed off so early in "V". Maybe the show would not have gone downhill so fast if they kept his character on.....(oh yeah, and dumbing down the series and it's real-world overtones and then making the show boring did not help either...)

    And is apparently in a relationship with Adrianne Palicki, an actress who has also appeared in her share of DC and Hasbro properties (The not Superman's cousin version of Supergirl in Smallville, Wonder Woman in a shelved pilot for NBC, and Lady Jaye in G.I. Joe: Retaliation)

    On a related note, last semester, while being a TA for a 9th grade class that was watching "Of Mice and Men", i watched the credits. Guess who played Lennie?

    Same here, I watch that movie all of the time, it's just a good classic Will Smith signature film (action movie where he plays the smart/wise ass) And I loved Sonny. Never knew he did the voice work for Sonny.

    Alan Tudyk is awesome. In my opinion, he was at his best when he was on Firefly. It kinda makes me wish that he said this line to Sentinel Prime halfway through the movie.
