It's the man who played a TV news reporter in Zodiac (2007) approximately 2 hours and 10 minutes (130 minutes) into the movie. It's during family dinner scene after Robert (Jake Gyllenhaal) and his son are excused from the table to watch the news. The reporter's name is Alan Freeman (sp?). I have no clue who he is! I'm pretty sure he's uncredited, but I know for sure he's been in other things.

Couldn't see that name on the IMDB cast listing. Uncredited extra? – Jared Aug 8 '13 at 22:30
@Jared, yeah, the character's name isn't on the IMDB cast listing. He must be uncredited, but his face is so familiar, (I know someone has to recognize it!) – user5726 Aug 9 '13 at 0:41
How about a screenshot? As it stands, only those who have a copy of the movie handy will be able to answer your question. – coleopterist Aug 9 '13 at 4:54
@coleopterist, I wanted to include pictures, but I don't have enough reputation yet :( I'm almost there though. – user5726 Aug 9 '13 at 16:10
@user5726 Give us a link and we'll add it for ya :) – coleopterist Aug 9 '13 at 16:17

Bill Seward played a news anchor in the film (uncredited) - is this who you think you saw?

Alternatively, Mitchell Fink is uncredited but plays a reporter in the film - ring any bells?

Bill Seward is the one who introduced before the actor I'm looking for. He introduces the reporter as "Alan Freeman." – user5726 Aug 9 '13 at 0:40
I have amended my answer to see if that floats your boat ;) – Nobby Aug 9 '13 at 3:57
Yeah I found him in the uncredited list too, but it doesn't look like him either...and I don't recognize his face from anything else. I feel like the part was given to a well known actor, and that he chose to take the part without any credit. – user5726 Aug 9 '13 at 16:15
Is the clip online at all? Perhaps we could ID from that. – Nobby Aug 9 '13 at 17:26
