A poor man's Kenny Baker

Ed & ALF
Continuing with people you might not know, please welcome...
Mihaly 'Michu' Meszaros, or to those who watched late 80's situation comedies Gordon Shumway a.k.a. ALF, is a Hungarian born actor. Not much is known about the lil' man who suited up as the wise-cracking house guest of the Tanner's. Sort of sucks for him that he didn't even do ALF's voice, all he did was suit up when they needed a scene of ALF walking. At first, the thought of catalogings the best Gordon Shumway moments, like when he hosted The Late Show, was exciting, but since Michu didn't do the voice or many of the actions, the projects been dropped. You know how actors are... don't want to go giving credit to the wrong person. Some of his other roles include Andy in Big Top Pee-wee, a stunt double in Look Who's Talking, and a few other roles requiring a dwarf. Small people might be scary and maybe not even have a reason to live if you believe Randy Newman, but its good to see one who made it big. Well, big for a lil' guy, not everyone can be Verne Troyer.
So today is Michu day, unfortunately its almost tomorrow already so Michu only gets about 5 minutes. Back tomorrow with another person you don't need to know but will probably want to remember for that obscure TP question.
