"That Guy Dick Miller" offers audiences an insightful look at the last of the great American character actors.

In filmmaker Elijah Drenner's latest documentary, he takes viewers into Miller's life and home in a funny and unexpectedly moving story.

Joining Miller are the directors, producers, co-stars and friends who have helped make him Hollywood's leading "that guy" everyone has seen.

Whether sharing the screen with Nicholson, DeNiro, Schwarzenegger or The Ramones, actor Dick Miller has been stealing scenes since his screen debut in 1955.

He has worked with some of the great directors: Scorsese, Corman, Fuller, Dante, Cameron, Demme and more. Every moviegoer knows his face, but few know his name and even fewer know his story; an aspiring writer turned accidental actor.

The film screens March 8, 11, 13 at SXSW this year.
