“Herman’s Head” Roll Call

One of our favorite games to play while watch­ing movies or tele­vi­sion is to try and name the actors in sup­port­ing roles, or at least where we might have seen them before.

Inevitably, every per­son that I say “I’ve seen them in some­thing before,” Angela will reply “they were on Her­man’s Head. Her­man’s Head was an ear­ly show on Fox (way back in 1991) in which Her­man, a young pro­fes­sion­al, had four peo­ple in his brain that rep­re­sent­ed var­i­ous base human emo­tions who would argue about all his deci­sions. Her­man meets a girl and Lust and Sen­si­tiv­i­ty go at each oth­er’s throats. When Her­man has to be cre­ative for a work project, Anx­i­ety and Intel­lect duke it out. Well, oth­er than Hank Azaria, most of the actors on the show have let a life of guest appear­ances on ER and Law & Order as well as minor sup­port­ing roles in films. That, and full­fill­ing Ange­la’s the­o­ry of Six Degree’s of Herman.
