David Patrick Kelly

David Patrick Kelly's most memorable movie role came from his first film, The Warriors, and it's that movie that really showcased the potential of this wonderful actor. Other film roles followed like 48 Hours and Commando, but the best use of his talents seemed to have been utilized in live theater.

While that is a huge plus for theater audiences, it's a real shame for film goers, as this unique actor explodes with intensity and originality with whatever role he takes on.

Although David Patrick Kelly is a working actor, and a very good one at that, I feel that Hollywood has missed the boat where he's concerned because many of his roles just aren't big enough. He adds so much flavor, freshness and creativity to whatever role is given him; the audiences always want more. He could carry a film if just given the opportunity.

Check out his work in Twin Peaks, The Warriors and Spike Lee's, Crooklyn and see for yourself why David Patrick Kelly is my pick of the day for Not Very Famous...but should be.

  1. If I'm not wrong, he was a really scary killer in Dreamscape, alongside Dennis Quaid and Eddie Albert.
