This is the second release of this list. First, several points:
- I use the word "acter" as a gender neutral term. Actually, it could
apply to animals as well I suppose. So that isn't a mis-spelling or typo of
- I've received comments/criticisms that some of the people mentioned
(Carol Burnette, Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor) are actually acters and not just
comedians or what not. It's true that some people in here have done many
film/TV appearances. However, almost any sort of entertainment involves some
form of acting. In the end, I'll simply judge whether an entry is acceptable
or not. Comedians will always be acceptable, as well as multi-talented entries.
- If anyone feels like starting up a list of Major acter celebs doing guest shots on whatever TV shows, feel free. It's certainly be a useful companion to this list.
- Finally, any additions, corrections, or suggestions are appreciated, and
Note: Additions must include the name of the show the celebrity was on, and
what the celebrity is most significantly known for. Fictional shows only, no
news or talk shows. Mini-series or TV movies are acceptable. Episode names are
not vital but are useful. Air dates are very much wanted if possible. Any
corrections are welcome.
