You Know These Actors, Just Can't Remember The Name

Don’t let nobody tell ya different, you know these actors despite the fact that remembering their names seems to be an impossible task. Yesterday, one of my Twitter fam members sent me a genius take on a very significant subject. One that has been on the mind of many throughout the years and it just isn’t getting any better.

Ryan Traina has stepped up to do the research and taken over as the premier creativity in his family. As soon as I searched ‘David Koechner’ I knew this fella had gold. Let’s lay this out on the plate.

You Know Em,
But Not Really…

Rob Riggle

You Know These Actors.
Rob Riggle

This may be the easiest one on the list and it’s solely because networks have shoved this dude down ya fucking throat for the last few years. If not for his weekly segments on Fox Football, I’m confident he’d be a question mark. However, as mentioned Riggle has appeared a fuck ton.

  • Talladega Nights
  • Super High Me
  • Step Brothers
  • The Goods
  • Let’s Be Cops
  • The Hangover
  • 21 & 22 Jump Street
  • The Other Guys

Dude has been in TV shows since 1998.

The name is Rob Riggle.

David Koechner

This is when the shit starts getting fantastic. David Koechner is a name that I’ve heard not one of my friends ever say around me. But, have watched a Koechner film with most likely every single one of those buddies who couldn’t remember his name if a zillion dollars was on the line.

“Dick, take a look.”
Koechner as the pilot in Austin Powers
  • ‘Champ Kind’ in Anchorman
  • ‘Herschell’ in Talladega Nights
  • ‘Rick The Birdmaster’ in Balls of Fury
  • ‘Brent Gage’ in The Goods.
  • ‘The Commissioner’ in Semi-Pro
Koechner on SNL with Will Ferrell.
Riggle and Koechner are huge KC fans.

But, let’s not forget the most significant role. My guy was Todd fucking Packer in ‘The Office’ for 15 episodes. Shit was fucking tight. Also, connected with our first name on this list, Rob Riggle.

Rob Corddry

Folks, it doesn’t get any more familiar or easier as we continue to list off the names provided by Alex Traina’s research. Rob Corddry is that fucking guy you CANNOT remember the name of for shit.

Rob Corddry
Known for several roles…

But, you for sure know this bald son of a bitch. In fact, real fans remember some of his earliest work in ‘Children’s Hospital.’ Dude, that fucking show was pure cruel humor. Ran for eight years and Corddry’s hands were all over the creation of it. He’s been in several TV shows since then, most recently known for being The Rock’s second hand man in ‘Ballers’ on HBO. Forever his greatest acting role will be the ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ series.

Walton Goggins

Maybe I’m off base here, but I think at this point in 2021 that Walton Goggins is a name that should be remembered. With that being said, I just confirmed his name the other day. It’s a tough fucking name for Hollywood. However, this dude has pretty fucking fantastic work.

Goggins as Sheriff Chris Mannix
The Hateful Eight

The apple don’t fall far from the tree as funny people in Hollywood usually stick around other comical folks. That is exactly what I vibe with Goggins as him and Danny McBride have been putting out some projects.

Vice Principals, Righteous Gemstones

Bobby Cannavale

I’m throwing this dude in here cause it’s fucking hilarious. I really could have never guessed the fella’s name from Boardwalk Empire, Paul Blart, Will & Grace, and whatever the fuck else he’s played in.

Matthew Broderick

Y’all should be a fucking shamed of ya selves, myself included. Time was not the excuse for us to bobble Ferris Bueller’s name around for 30 years. It’s Matthew Broderick, not the guy who played Ferris.

Matthew Broderick
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

He also played:

  • Clark Kellogg in ‘The Freshman’
  • ADULT SIMBA in ‘The Lion King’
  • Steven Kovacs in ‘The Cable Guy’
  • He was Inspector Gadget
  • Dr. Niko in ‘Godzilla’ (1998)

Lastly, fella is the soulmate of Sarah Jessica Parker.

Don’t ever mistake this man’s name again.

John C. Reilly

These are literally all the fellas whose name doesn’t exactly pop up when ya see the face. It’s gotten better as time has went, but one has to expect for John C. Reilly to be on this list.

Too many roles for common folks too often forget his fucking name. He’s been active since 1988 and honestly ‘The Perfect Storm’ was the first time I can remember seeing his face.

The Perfect Storm

From there it was all up hill for Reilly.

  • Gangs of New York
  • Chicago
  • Anger Management
  • The Aviator
  • Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story
  • Step Brothers

And literally days worth of movies more.

But, this shit right here…

Ricky Bobby & Cal Naughton Jr.

Cal Naughton Jr. in Talladega Nights.

Would you be able to recall the name?

Prolly not.

Craig Robinson

Don’t fucking tell me I don’t know Craig Robinson. In fact, this is the one name that I will not allow myself to move past without confirming.

Craig Robinson
One of the funniest guys on the planet.

Love this fucking dude, he doesn’t have a bad appearance on his resume. But, he just has a name that don’t wanna stay in my fucking head. One of the founding fathers of the comedy that usually involves Franco, Rogen, and fellas like that. ‘This is the End’, Craig may have the best role.

Ya may not want to admit it, but ya can’t remember his name on a daily basis unless ya train ya self to do so. This isn’t the end of the list, just the end for me writing about it. Leave mayo some comments on who ya think absolutely mind fucks ya on remembering their name.

It’s okay to admit it.



Similar situation, just like ya don’t wanna admit that ya car needs service. Been riding it around over 3,000 miles past an oil change like a busta? Head over to Midas on Canal street and get that shit proper. Nobody fucks with a grimy vehicle driver. Turn it around and trust the Midas touch.
