Wilford Brimley in MY FELLOW AMERICANS with James Garner.
WILFORD BRIMLEY: Balding, portly and with a full mustache, Wilford Brimley's unique presence, sometimes grand-fatherly, at other times menacing, has been gracing film and TV screens for decades. Although known to some primarily as the folksy pitchman in Quaker Oats commercials, Brimley has delivered a series of well-drawn screen portraits in films like "Cocoon," "The End of the Line," and "The Firm," among many others. He occasionally plays sharper characters, such as a lawyer in "Absence of Malice." Brimley is actually considerably younger than he looks, no draw-back for a character actor.
