Character Actors & Actresses -- Time to Shine Spotlight On Them

Enjoy the Friday Night Spotlight .  Would love to see the spotlight on the character actors and actresses we see all the time but don't always know their background info. Would especially love to see the focus on Eve Arden, the queen of character actresses.  Miss Arden could do it all ---  comedy, drama, musicals. It's about time for all those "second bananas" to get the spotlight shined on them.

Totally agree about Eve Arden. Great comic timing...just as good as Lucille Ball in that regard. 

 

I think the character actors should be a group Star of the Month. The spotlights tend to be genre-specific, or else based on directors.

Yes,  TCM is slipping up by not featuring those second bananas.

I created a thread a few years back on General Discussions (before the upgrade) and we had lots of posts/discussion about character actors from almost every major decade in Hollywood. A lot of people were, and still are, interested in the character players.
