Dan Hedaya in 2016
The role of wisecracking, villainous Tully fits right into Dan Hedaya's type. He is often cast in colorful supporting roles. On two popular TV shows, he played guest-star relatives of main characters: Carla's ex-husband on Cheers and Monk's estranged father on Monk.
After The Addams Family came the role that endeared Hedaya to a generation of teenagers: Mel Horowitz, the gruff but affectionate father to Alicia Silverstone's Cher in the classic teen comedy Clueless. He's been working steadily since then, releasing at least a movie per year between 1995 and 2007. Most recently, he had a small part in 2016's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
