    Hello Guys,

    I'm trying to find the name of an actor, and it's driving me crazy. I have been googling for hours but not been able to find him yet. I do not know his name or exactly what movies he is in, but maybe you could give me some tips?

    What I do know is how he looks:

    He have a beard. He is kind of big. I remember that when he smiles, his eyes get thin. It also looks like he have an underbite. I can also recall some movie (possibly childrens/teen movie), where he plays a sidekick and is a little stupid. He is not a "big name" (I think). I think he might be around 45 years old.
    Also, he looks like "a nice guy".

    It is not Jack Black or the actor from "Last man on earth". He is taller than both of them. It is not Jorge Garcia.

    If I recall correctly, he is driving a car in some movie (I know that is exremely vague). Not a car chase, just driving, together with another guy.

    Do you have any suggestions please?

    Any suggestions are welcome! Go crazy ;D


    -------------------- HE IS FOUND! It is Abraham Benrubi. --------------------

    Haha I know that my description is very vague :) Just though I would put the question out there, to see if anyone had any idea, hehe.
    My girlfriend had to lay down on the floor because she laughed so hard at your response, as she said the same thing before I posted it!

    Also, if I remember correctly, he is not bald. But I am not sure.

    I think he might have been in some kind of drama, but not as a lead character. Always as a side character. Not as an "extra", but not as a lead..
    At first I thought he was in The Mask from 1994, but I checked it and I was wrong. He has kind of an appearance that would fit in Flintstones.

    He could possibly have played as a villain at some point in his career..

    What color hair does this person have? Black, brown, or blond? Eye color?
    When you say "kind of big," do you mean fat, tall, or stocky?
    Did he have a mustache as well, or just a beard? Are you sure it was a beard and not a mustache? How did he wear it? Sample pictures of his facial hair on a different person would help.
    When you say you think he might be around 45, was that when you saw that movie, or was he born around 1971?

    Tell us more about that car movie.
    About how many years ago did you see it?
    Did you see it in Sweden in a theater or on a television with commercials?
    Can you remember anything about the lead character or any of the plot?

    Haircolor is dark, black. Not sure about eye color, but I think dark/brown.
    I mean fat and tall, but not Michael Moore fat.
    Yes he did have full facial hair, mustache and beard (not goatee). Think Jorge Garcia, but without the beard on the chins: http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/M...MDUzMjQ5MTE@._V1_UY317_CR57,0,214,317_AL_.jpg.
    The last time I saw him (around 2010-2012) he was like 40, so I guess he would be around 45. What I mean is, he does not look old, but he is also no youngster.
    Just talking about American movies/tv shows. It was not in the theater, it was on TV, movie.

    Can not remember the plot, except that when they got in the car they were stressed (like a thousand of movies, I know... :) )

    Try to expand a bit more on the time you saw it.
    It'll help whittle down the search zone by years.
    I know you didn't see it in theaters, but was it EVER in theaters, or a straight to DVD film?
    Did you see it in Sweden? How do they normally do American films there? Do they wait a few years before importing movies? How long does it take for a film that was in theaters to reach television?

    Sorry about the timeperiod, I am simply not sure :) Think friendly, bearded, smile, underbite..
    Not sure if he ever was in a movie in theaters but maybe one or twice. Generally I think he is more of a straight to DVD guy.
    In Sweden I saw it on TV. Normally American movies are shown with either the same release date on cinema, or at most a couple (like in 2) weeks delay.
    From theaters to television I guess it takes about 1 year. Some big movies lesser than that.

    Kinda sounds like John Goodman. Especially the appearance fitting in with the Flintstones. He was Fred Flintstone in the movie.

    Not Dwayne either, the guy I'm thinking of does not have muscles, he is just a "big guy"..
