In Character: Actors Acting : Howard Schatz is among the most in-demand photographers working today, and his distinctive style has been widely imitated in art and advertising. Schatz's latest project, is a book of photographic portraits of working actors - many of them recognized stars - playing one or more roles directed by the photographer. The images are composed of one, two, three or more characters performed by each actor. Characters might include an evil crime boss, an eight-year-old girl triumphing at a spelling bee, a gambler at the track, a businessman on the prowl, a teenage girl flirting, or a coach imploring his players to play harder. Insightful comments accompanying the images reveal the actors' personal experiences, as well as their views on the creative process of acting and developing a character. Included are Jason Alexander, Richard Dreyfuss, Chevy Chase, Ellen Burstyn, Kelsey Grammer, Danny Glover, Peter Falk, Rosie Perez, Joe Mantegna, James Earl Jones, Natasha Richardson, George Segal, Hal Holbrook, Judd Hirsch, and Edie Falco.
