Sherman Howard

(aka Howard Sherman)

Ok, you’re wondering who this guy is. He’s put in a lot of fine performances over the years, most recently in video games and cartoons, but more importantly he’s also put in the single best performance anyone ever put on film – Bub in Romero’s Day of the Dead. I’m not sure what recently-revived corpses would actually be like, but Sherman pitches him as a cross between a dog and a child and it all makes sense. Every scene contains something inventive and magical, but in particular those with Bub’s minder, Dr. Logan (Richard Liberty). By the end of the movie, you’re on one character’s side, and it’s the dead guy.
