Having made a career out of playing bizarre oddball characters, actor Crispin Glover had very little mainstream success outside of his breakthrough role as nerdy George McFly in the blockbuster "Back to the Future" (1985). Ever since that time, Glove relished his stature as an off-kilter performer whose penchant for making out-of-the-way indies like "River's Edge" (1987) and "Wild At Heart" (1990) earned him the adulation of a small cult following of fans. While his 1987 appearance on "Late Night with David Letterman" (NBC, 1982-1993), where he tried to karate kick the host, became the stuff of legend, Glover preferred to stay incognito with small roles in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" (1993) and "The People vs. Larry Flynt" (1996). Occasionally, he appeared in bigger studio films like "Charlie's Angels" (2000) and "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" (2003), but seemed more at home in smaller movies like "Willard" (2003), a strange little horror film revered by fans and ignored by most everyone else. By the end of the decade, however, Glover was appearing in bigger films, playing animated characters in "Beowulf" (2007) and "Alice in Wonderland" (2010), which perhaps gave him more opportunity to portray the offbeat characters that he so obviously loved.
