Interesting Facts

1 He is sometimes confused with fellow character actor Tracey Walter, who has sometimes also played the same type of eccentric Southern lowlifes. Since they have often gone after the same roles, the two actors have actually become friends. Unlike Walter, Sanderson actually hails from the Southeast US.
2 Was the original actor cast as Joe Camber in the film adaptation of Stephen King's "Cujo".
3 Profiled in "Character Kings: Hollywood's Familiar Faces Discuss the Art & Business of Acting" by Scott Voisin. [2009]
4 Has one adult son, Andrew.
5 Enlisted in the army and served two years.
6 Earned a JD from Memphis State.
7 Earned a BA from Southern Methodist University.


1 Often plays diminutive, eccentric oddballs on the outer edges of communities.


1 I'm a journeyman actor and part of my journey is getting to work with those actors I admire and make good films.
2 It's better to be type-cast, than not cast at all.
