As an actor I’m part of a long line of character people you can take back to the silent movies. There’s always the little guy who’s the sidekick to the tall, good-looking guy who gets the girl.
For an actor to have a role that they're recognized and remembered for over the years, it's unusual. It's very lucky if it happens once - and it's luck that it's happened to me a couple of times.

Comments on: "Curtis Armstrong Quotes: For an actor to have a role that they're recognized and remembered for..."
The movies that I did in the ’80s were either good or bad, but I never was oppressed with any feeling – I mean, I thought it was ridiculous to play high school or college students when I was 30. But at the same time, that was really done then.
I’m at least getting my foot in the door as far as doing straight dramatic parts, which no one would have ever considered me for in the ’80s. I never objected to that because I love doing comedy, and I’m not the kind of actor that insists that unless you’re doing a serious dramatic role, you’re not acting.
