Can’t place Bob Balaban? He’s been around since the 1977 hit feature film Close Encounters of the Third Kind. He has appeared in many films, including The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Monuments Men and Lady in the Water. Director Christopher Guest employs him regularly: A Mighty Wind, Best in Show, For Your Consideration and Waiting for Guffman. But he might be most familiar for his appearances on two long running sitcoms. He played Russell Dalrymple, the fictional Vice President in Seinfeld and Frank, Phoebe’s father on Friends.
