Favorite Actor Monday: Monday Bloody Monday Edition

Tom Savini is primarily a special effects technician and makeup artist for a lot of really great horror movies (and some incredibly shitty ones), but he also does a lot of acting. Though he mostly plays small roles, he's always memorable. He's a very funny, naturalistic actor, though he's also adept at playing batshit nutzoids. Tom Savini, I like the cut of your jib.

Recommended performances:
Martin (George Romero, 1977)
Dawn of the Dead (George Romero, 1978)
Knightriders (George Romero, 1981)
Creepshow (George Romero, 1982)
