I remember laughing a lot with another scene.

When the librarian tells Jerry and Kramer about Mr. Bookman, Kramer goes: "Mr. Bookman?! That's amazing! That's like an icecream guy named Cone!"
"In Serbia a lot of people hate me because they want to westernise, not understanding that the western world is bipolar, with very good things and very bad things. Since they don't have experience of the west, they even believe that western shit is pie."

Mr. Bookman also shows up in the final episode in the courtroom as a witness speaking against Seinfeld.

Nothing too spectacular, a pretty small appearance. I remember he goes off about how irresponsible Jerry is for a second and that's it.

I have great news for all you PBH fans. "Secret Honor" is now available on ebay! It's starting at $8.99. Trust me, it's a really great movie with a great performance by PBH. No wonder PTA loved him after watching this. May the best man win...

Wow. Very, very tempting. I've never seen this. ... I guess there's no chance we'll ever get a groovy DVD edition, huh?

I might just bid.

what the hell has happened to PBH? I mean I love the guy, but he went from working with PTA and Altman to...

The Amityville Horror
Bruce Almighty
Lost Souls
Rules of Engagment
Sum of All Fears
and the upcoming The Shaggy Dog

he's gotta eat, I guess...

It's a challenge for an actor to do good work in a standard issue Hollywood film.  It's all about turning chicken shit into chicken salad.  Chris Walken and Billy Bob Thornton do it all the time.  Thornton made both Friday Night Lights and The Alamo much better than they would've been without him.

Music is your best entertainment value.

Apparently he had a guest spot on Modern Family.  Pretty low opinion of that show around here, but worth checking it out to see him in action, I imagine.
