Question of the Day

Who is your favorite background, throwaway, cameo or one-off character?

I think the scene with Philip Baker Hall's "Mr. Bookman," the library cop on Seinfeld could be one of the funniest performances in television history. Bookman steals that entire episode in one three minute scene. And I love that he's a one-episode character (that I know of); if they used him any more or tried to make him a regular character, they would have ruined him. (Embedding was disabled on the clip that I found, but you can see it here.

My favorite "one joke" character would have to be Hedonismbot.
