Saw him on Broadway Death of a Salesman 20 years ago or so. It was good. Lots of yelling.

Lots of movies. Sad to hear this news.

That is one thing I wish I could do more, see these folks on Broadway. It's an entirely different type of experience.

#5 87 days ago

Great actor. Sad to hear this.

#7 87 days ago

He was awesome as the evil boxing coach in “Gladiator”.
Great tough guy actor, enjoyed his work in all his movies. Rest easy.

Did Covid get him?

Me too, one of the best performances I’ve seen.
Loved Dennehy.

#11 87 days ago

I liked the FX movies. RIP Brian

I first saw him in Silverado (great 80s western for those that never checked it out), he played a perfect charismatic villain. Lots of great roles over the years.

Patton Oswalt tells a story about bumping into Dennehy at a movie premier buffet when they were both loading up their plates while the slimmer stars held back, and Dennehy said to him "Character actors! Who gives a fuck if we’re fat?"

#18 86 days ago

Sorry to hear that.
Was a wide eyed kid seeing him in First Blood and Cocoon,in awe i spose.

#19 86 days ago

So many good roles. Great actor.
Teasle : If you want some friendly advice, get a haircut and take a bath. You wouldn't get hassled so much.

Also in one of my favorite lesser known movies. He was the pilot in "Never Cry Wolf".

#20 86 days ago

He was perfect in First Blood. Damn I liked him as an actor, and hated him in that movie, so his acting was spot on.

#21 86 days ago

Great actor, and I hear he was a heck of a good guy in real life as well.

Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

Did Covid get him?

My buddy texted me 12 days ago and said he was sure Corvis was going to take Brian Dennehy; he's now demanding an autopsy.

#23 86 days ago

Not only a good actor but also ran an auto parts company with his son.

R.I.P Brian Dennehy. One of the great character actors of his generation. I'm going to watch First Blood tonight in his honor.

Godspeed Brian.

#28 86 days ago

He was so damn evil in Rambo! What a great heavy, and could play the other direction in stuff like Cocoon.

Rambo and Tommy Boy are American Classics
