So, I'm watching "Raven Hawk". William Atherton, John deLancie, Mitch Pileggi. Also Jerry Garcia, but not that one.
And I'm noticing that William Atherton (you remember him from Real Genius, right? Professor Hathaway? The jerk? The one who (spoilers) ends up with a house full of popcorn?) looks a little bit like Robert Redford.
So my question is: how does an actor like WA get typecast as the self-important authority figure that gets taken down in the last reel?
Maybe he can't act.
