And even though, many of his movies since then have gone unnoticed, Charles Martin Smith is an actor with a very impressive resume.
From The Buddy Holly Story to More American Graffiti and from Starman to The Untouchables, he has proven that he can not only hold his own with any actor, but can also carry a film all by himself, as he did in Never Cry Wolf. This was long before Tom Hanks did Castaway and his work in that film is every bit as good if not better than the more famous Hanks.
That's either the curse or the blessing of being Not Very Famous. However it hasn't stopped Charles Martin Smith from working and when his name appears in the credits, just know you will be watching a pro that will fit in seamlessly with the major star he's playing opposite.
