Collector's Call Web Extras: A Matlock star with a monster collection
This character actor has rare costumes from Planet of the Apes, Matlock, Phantasm and more.
Veteran Hollywood character actor Daniel Roebuck has appeared in more than 200 films and TV shows during his illustrious career, in roles ranging from Jay Leno in The Late Shift to Andy Griffith’s sidekick “Cliff” in the TV series Matlock.
Daniel is an equally impressive collector of horror and science-fiction movie memorabilia. He's staying safe at home, virtually showing off some of the highlights of his collection.
Let's take a closer look!

Take a closer look at clothing worn onscreen by Andy Griffith, "Apes" and others! Plus, awesome props and relics relating to the Munsters, Bela Lugosi, Peter Boyle and more!
2. Bonus video: Autographed Boris Karloff program
The horror icon did more than monsters. Karloff also performed in theater, specifically a stage production of Arsenic and Old Lace — in Alaska, of all places. Daniel has two programs from the play, one of them signed by Karloff.
3. Bonus video: 'Phantasm IV: Oblivion' prosthetic mask
Fellow character actor Bob Ivy sported this spooky getup as "Demon Trooper" in the 1998 horror sequel. Makeups are the "holy grail" of collecting horror movies, according to our expert.
4. Bonus video: Autographed Vincent Price program
The one-of-a-kind Vincent Price portrayed another iconic figure, Oscar Wilde, in a one-man theater production. Daniel approached the star and procured his signature — and a pretty great impression of Price!
