Holy Mackeral!! Is Bob Balaban in EVERY HBO movie?
 
Seriously, does he have some kind of arrangement with them, or is he married to the CEO's daughter? I mean, the man is literally in every single HBO film I've seen for the past several years.

The B in HBO stands for Balaban.

Close

Bob Balaban's father and his uncle Harry founded the H & E Balaban Corporation in Chicago. H & E Balaban Corporation operated their own movie palaces including the Esquire Theatre in Chicago. They later owned a powerful group of television stations and cable television franchises. His grandmother's second husband, Sam Katz, was a vice president at MGM beginning in 1936.
He's a very "juiced in" guy.

I don't have HBO, but I've seen him in a couple movies within a day or two on other movie channels. I saw him in Ghost World, then in 2010, and I thought of this thread. :lol:

He's in every HBO film I've ever seen.. sometimes as a major leading character and sometimes just as a cameo. It's really astonishing. I wonder if the newspapers have reported on this, because there is something going on. Something very odd.
