William Sadler – The Tribute

William Sadler has the kind of face one knows, but sometimes can’t place. Considering the number of credits he has on his IMDB page, it’s surprising he’s not known more than he is. One thing he is, is reliable. Sitting down to watch one of his films or a guest appearance on episodic television, one knows we’re going to get excellence from William. He’s just that good.

When trying to remember the fist time I saw William Sadler, one would have thought it was one of his bigger roles such as Col. Stuart in DIE HARD 2, or as Brayker in DEMON KNIGHT or Don in TRESPASS, but for me I now know it was further back than that. It was while I was watching an episode of the CBS sitcom NEWHART The part was credited as “Clumsy Guest”. I do remember the part when he comes down the stairs of the Stafford Inn and slips on the stairs landing at the bottom of the landing, then grabbing the baluster pulling it out of baserail. That character was one of many who had only one scene and was never seen again, but he was funny. The next time I saw him was likely as Col Stuart.
