    Disabled actors

    Nice to see an actor with Cerebral Palsy in the Fargo TV series. Alan Dobrescu plays Charlie, aspiring criminal in the evil Gerhardt family. Watching the series on Netflix.
    Dobrescu has a spastic hand and leg, walking with a limp.

    Also the tech guy in a w/c on 'NCIS New Orleans' (CBS) is really paralyzed. I checked out his bio, said he was in an accident that paralyzed him. Daryl Mitchel I believe.

    Gratz to the casting office for at least getting something right every once in a while.

    Anyone know of any others?

    I knew Danny Murphy, he was a great guy. Taken way too soon.

    For a while they used to mistake me for him here in Vegas, I have been asked for autographs and bought several drinks but I don't think I look at all like him but others do. lol..

    Charles Krauthammer is not an actor. He is a political commentator. If we are including broadcast journalists, then we should of course include John Hockenberry.

    How about Mitch Longley? Haven't heard much about him lately, and nothing on his IMDB page as far as film/TV acting work since 2014.

    Robert David Hall was on CSI (Las Vegas) for many years as the coroner. He was a double leg amputee.

    Michael J. Fox has Parkinson's Disease of course, and continues to work.
