When I see either name in the opening credits of a movie I'm always confused.

I loved Keith David in "The Thing" and "Something about Mary" in his supporting role.


David Keith was just great in "An officer and a gentleman" but after that I only remember seeing him in U-571 and Daredevil.


So anyway, who's your favorite David or errr Keith?

Keith David does a lot of voice-over, I think, like for the X-Box.

David Keith, to me anyway, looks like that Arliss guy. That's enough reason to hate him.

I really like both of them, but as JoebobX pointed out, Keith David has just got that voice.

Keith David.

Did you see Men At Work? Great performance.

Imo it's Keith David all the way, can't think of anything he did I did not like. David Keith on the other hand, I can't think of a movie he is in, he is just one of those faces I know I have seen in tons of movies.

Keith David, mainly for a) 12 minute fight scene with Rowdy Roddy Piper in "They Live"; and b) providing great narration in Ken Burn's "Baseball" and "Jazz" documentaries. (BTW - the quote in the earlier post is from "Requiem for a Dream".)

But some respect for David Keith, too for good performances in "The Great Santini" and "The Lords of Discipline."

Spontaneous new poll...

Keith Jackson or Jackson Pollack?

I like both actors a lot. I've seen them both in cool roles.

However, having worked in radio for so long I have to say that Keith David is a Voiceover God IMHO. His voice is rich, deep, and it stands out like a golden Microphone.


I mean shit! He was the voice of Goliath and Spawn. :up:

I vote for Bill Pullman. If it wasn't for his masterful performance, Thunderbirds would have been a complete bust.

I vote for David Keith then, because he was so awesome as Uncle Bill in Family Affair.

I was gonna say, just the longest fight scene in movie history was reason enough for me...lol

The cartoon voice of Spawn, Men at Work, the list goes on forever....he's just one of the coolest unsung actors out there...:D

not to say that I dislike David Keith...

i liked him in the TV show 'High Incident' and most movies he was in...

Keith David is always entertaining to watch (and listen to), but David Keith has a bit more range as an actor.

VHS?

David Keith:
Nobody remembers FIRESTARTER ?
How about INDIAN IN THE CUPBOARD ? Boo-hoo Boone!!!??? He and Little Bear where AWESOME!! LOL

David Keith:

Keith David:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0202966/

Upon looking at the lists,both have done really good movies.

Keith David, although David Keith is no slouch. I love the little-seen Gulag.
