Explanation:
"Supporting actor" is a bit too much for a Kleindarsteller. Check out this bilingual page:

http://www.luebeck.de/filmtage/98/filmprogramm/filme/123.htm...

German: “Jürgen Prediger hat sich in vielen Berufen versucht und gelangte als Kleindarsteller...”

English: “Jürgen Prediger held many different jobs before coming to fame and fortune as a bit actor...”


Also check out this multilingual page:

“Kleindarsteller: bit player.”
