    May his soul rest in peace: well done, thy good and faithful servant.

    I based it on his acting. You must have encountered him and know more than what I see on the big screen. You never know do you?

    Loved it.

    A strange man when I ran into him on my route when he was filming and on break some time around 1990. Seemed nice just a little impatient with the young director and then asked if I wanted his autograph which I didn't. He then tried to engage me in talk about my work which not too many people ever do. Like I said he seemed strange, wouldn't surprise me if he was an alien from another planet.

    He Did a lot of work some of which I liked and a lot which I don't remember or want to remember. Hope his family is coping well with their loss.

    Actors can be a little "otherworldly" it's only their artistic nature....

    If only he hadn't done Roadhouse - it's what I'll forever remember him for which is unfortunate.

    What makes you say that, nudeyorker?
    Do you have an anecdote?
