Dakin Matthews has one of those unforgettable faces, the kind of character actor who brightens each of the scenes you catch him in despite the fact that you don't know his name. Most recently, he has appeared in a slew of television shows -- including "Desperate Housewives" and "True Blood" -- but you can currently find him in the Coen brothers' "True Grit," where he plays in two scenes opposite SAG nominee Hailee Steinfeld as the hapless Col. Stonehill, who gets taken by 14-year old Mattie Ross. My colleague Charlotte Stoudt has a great Q&A with Matthews on our Culture Monster blog.

Take a look and let us know what you think.
