Sherlock Holmes?

That's them.   The sheer number of actors narrowed the possibilities, and eliminating Shakespeare narrowed it further.   Jeremy Brett is known primarily for playing Sherlock, and both Robert Downey Jr  and Will Farrell played him recently.    Ian McKellen played a retired SH in "Mr Holmes" fairly recently.   At least twice as many actors as I posted have played him, but I listed the ones you may have heard of (Stewart Granger,  John Barrymore....)    If you missed this, I was going to add Johnny Lee Miller, Benedict Comberbatch, and Basil Rathbone.

In other news, I'm skipping town for about a week, shortly, so I'll rejoin you in about a week.   Talk amongst yourselves.

One of those names makes me think "Clint Howard" but I really don't think you went in that direction.

Though I can think of a number of Clint Howard appearances, the only character with name recognition would have been Balok.

Now the REALLY easy ones:

Marshal Jed Cooper        Blondie          Jonathan Hemlock

Ben Shockley        Mitchell Gant          Red Stovall

Wes Block       Tommy Nowak      Frank Horrigan

Frank Corvin           Frankie Dunn      Walt Kowalski

Rowdy Yates        Philo Beddoe        Thomas Highway

Harry Callahan       Josey Wales         Bronco Billy

That's him.  "Ox" was in "Stripes", and was named in the dialogue.    Burton Mercer was Jake Blues' parole officer.   And so on.
