Have you heard of Skeet Ulrich?
Don’t be ashamed if you don’t, having knowledge of him is neither counter-culture nor “hip,” it’s merely pointless and stupid.
That being said, let me; the (self-proclaimed) Master of the Pointless and Stupid be guide your guide to the slightly above average B-level actor that his Skeet Ulrich!
All you really have to know about the man, is that his first name is a slang term for male ejaculate; and his claim to fame in the acting world is that he looks kind of like Johnny Depp.
Rather, he looked like Johnny Depp:
Father Time: 1 - Skeet Ulrich: 0
To my knowledge, the one movie that most people would remember Skeet Ulrich from, had they the desire to do so; would most likely be Wes Craven’s Scream.
In Scream, Ulrich played a guy that looked vaguely like Johnny Depp and… Well, even though the movie came out some 6-7 years ago; I’d prefer not to spoil it, given that it’s actually pretty good.
On a side note, it was Wes Craven who originally gave Johnny Depp his first acting role in A Nightmare on Elm Street, making him responsible for introducing the film world to the panty soaking powerhouse that is Johnny Depp, as well as his significantly less talented Doppelganger, Jizz Ulrich.
What an interesting coincidence.
Near as I can tell, things have gone downhill for Skeet-Skeet ever since.
He co-starred in Chill Factor, a film about a nuclear ice cream truck.
...Or if you're foreign, "50 Degrees Fahrenheit." That's a winning title if I've ever heard one...
He starred in Jericho, a show that got cancelled around the time people started to care about it.
He also starred in a film called Chilly Dogs… In which he raced a bunch of cold-ass dogs in the Iditarod.
Holy shit, Spunk Ulrich, The Chick from Species, and Leslie Nielsen; ALL IN THE SAME MOVIE!?
And most recently I caught him, looking quite shopworn I might add; in Armored, a movie about quite possibly the most inept armored car robbers in all of armored car robbery.
Skeet Ulrich has long been a running gag in my mind as one of the higher profile “that guy” actors in Hollywood cinema.
A “that guy” is basically what I call an actor that you see, all the fucking time; however the average viewer rarely ever takes the time to learn their name.
Man-Spunk Ulrich came out the gate with the looks to set up a solid career, however for whatever reason he’s seemingly never amounted to any more than a Diet Johnny Depp.
Similar in taste and appearance, but otherwise lacking the substance of the original.
Oh well, as low-profile as the man’s career has been, I’ve had my fair share of laughs over making fun of him over the years.
Here’s to Cum-Puddle Ulrich, may the Doppelgangers of Hollywood live on!
