Here is the ultimate list of the familiar faces that you always see in your favorite fantasy, Sci-Fi and comic book movies and television series, but thanks to their B-Celebrity status, have no idea who these actors are.
When these people’s faces appear on screen, you'll often hear yourself say something to the effect of: "Hey, it’s that guy."
We present them to you, with names included. Now try to remember them.
20. John Saxon
Notable Work: Enter the Dragon, Nightmare on Elm Street
Whether he’s getting killed or parenting his daughter whose about to get killed, you can always rely on solid acting from the Sax.

Not only does Urban appear in every Sci-Fi and horror film in the past 10 years, but he also looks like someone you went to college with.
17. Ronny Cox
Always playing the douchebag business guy, most of the time you cheer when he is killed on screen. In real life, Cox is a pretty mean folk and blues musician.

That British guy, he’s all over the place, especially in a dystopian future.

Ron’s bro has made a habit of being that guy you see in almost every movie known to man.
9. Harold Perrineau
He may have a surprised and constipated look on his face, but he also has an excellent survival rate in his appearances.

2. Doug Jones
Thanks to his tall, skinny frame, Jones has carved out his niche playing a variety of freakish genre heroes and villains.
1. Al Leong
1. Al Leong
The ultimate "oh that guy" guy. From the big screen to television, this guy’s agent must have worked his tail off getting Al into just about everything genre entertainment had to offer for a 20 year span. Sadly, Leong died in 98 percent of his roles.
