    I was thinking about this earlier while I was watching "Juno." As usual, J.K. Simmons (who played Juno's father) was outstanding as he usually is (i.e. in the Spiderman movies).

    Which character actors are your favorites?

    I know he hasn't been in much, but the actor who plays Kevin on "The Office" comes to mind.

    Likewise, I haven't seen him in anything else, but you're right, he's perfect on The Office.

    What exactly is a character actor? I have a few in mind but am hazy as to what the title actually means.

    Philip Baker Hall is the textbook definition of a character actor.

    No. The people you listed are lead actors, not character actors.
