    Local paper's obit referred to him as a 'character actor', although not a derogatory term, it bothered me.  I always took the term to imply an actor that never got big parts or had 'name' recognition. Take Nehemiah Persoff (who I also liked) as an example of a character actor in my mind but Eli Wallach to me was just a fine actor with a resume dating back to 1951.  He will be missed.

    Always like Eli Wallach.  Never thought of him as a character actor.
     
    Also like Nick.  (Nehemiah)
