      John Carroll Lynch has one of those recognizable faces you've seen in countless movies and TV shows, but whose name you can never quite remember. After landing a small role in 1993's over-the-hill comedy "Grumpy Old Men," Lynch appeared in over 80 movies and TV shows. He also worked with some of the most revered directors of his generation, including Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese, Joel and Ethan Coen, and David Fincher. A character actor known for playing everything from convicts on the run ("Carnivale" HBO 2003-05), to loveable cross-dressers, as he did for several seasons on "The Drew Carey Show" (ABC 1995-2004), Lynch's most famous role came in 1996 when he starred as the timid, unassertive husband of Frances McDormand's character in the Coen Brothers' Academy Award-winning crime drama "Fargo." His memorable appearances in such acclaimed films as "Zodiac" (2007), "Shutter Island" (2010) and "Crazy, Stupid, Love." (2011) ensured that his work will be watched for decades to come, even if audiences have a difficult time remembering his name.
