Margo Martindale in "Thirteen Shady Characters"
SAM JONES Margo Martindale in "Thirteen Shady Characters"

Hollywood has no shortage of brilliant character actors whose faces you've seen over and over but whose names you can never quite recall. Some are indie rock stars who show up now and then in studio films with a scene or two, some are well-known for theater work, but most remain on-call, often typecast, albeit constantly working.

Luckily, Vanity Fair magazine called up thirteen of Hollywood's most notable character actors, put them in front to celebrity photographer Sam Jones' camera, and asked them to play out a scene. Needless to say, the results are pretty spectacular.
