With "Hey It's That Guy "you can impress your friends and confound your enemies by identifying everyone from Jeffrey Jones (the dean of students from Ferris Bueller's Day Off) to Jennifer Coolidge (Stifler's mom in American Pie) to Patrick Cranshaw (the really old guy from Old School) to Jane Adams (Niles's plastic surgeon wife on Frasier).
