Scifi Movies/MIB actor


QUESTION: In the first Men In Black, what is the actors name of the weird looking guy standing next to Frank the pug in the yellow pages booth?

ANSWER: Hello Ox

The News Vendor "Manny", that was with Frank the pug at the Yellow Pages booth was played by Harsh Nayyar.

I hoped this has helped.



---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------

QUESTION: That was the news vendor who sold them the tabloid papers "hot sheets" earlier in the movie, I am trying to find the guy who never spoke with the white hair in the yellow pages/locksmith hut with frank, the guy will smith thought was "definitely an alien."

Oh yes I see who you mean,'The Riff Raff - Rocky Horror Picture Show - looking character'. He doesn't appear to have been credited in the film or in IMDB cast listings or any other sites listing the cast, which I find unusual as I feel he should have been.
Some think it was Richard Hamilton, but there is no proof to substantiate that claim, unless he was uncredited.  

I will try to dig a bit deeper and do my best to find out for you and get back to you if I find something, sorry I can't be of more help and I am intrigued to know who the actor is myself now.
