Who’s Paul Gleason, you ask? He’s a “That Guy”, one of those actors you instantly recognize but whose name you don’t know. He frequently played the same kind of character – the authority figure who blusters and poses but doesn’t really know what he’s doing. He was Deputy Police Chief Dwayne T. Robinson in Die Hard, the bumbling police administrator who thinks Bruce Willis should leave it to them. He was Clarence Beeks in Trading Places and Professor McDougle in Van Wilder. Most famously, he was Dick Vernon, the asshole teacher in the Breakfast Club.
