    Diabetus got him

    That dude made a great career of playing old. He was like 40 in the Thing...and 50s for Cocoon? Shoulda won an Oscar !

    I guess I'll eat some Quaker Oats in his honor. It's the right thing to do.

    RIP

    He was great actor, but great narrator too, as in " last of the dogmen"

    #6 1 year ago

    He wasn't just a postmaster, he was also a general.

    Some great appearances over a long period.

    Our House, The Natural, End Of The Line, Tender Mercies, The Electric Horseman, How The West Was Won, True Grit, The Waltons, and so many more TV shows and movies.

    I'll miss him.

    RIP

    #24 1 year ago

    He was awesome in The Thing. I just watched it again last week for at least the 20th time.

    I had nothing but respect for the guy until I read this connected with him. Now, not so much...

    I thought he didn't actually have Diabetus, but his doctor said he looked like someone that would?

    My wife and I did the math last night and all she could was “WTf, he was the same age you are now in Cocoon “. Unreal

    And for those of you joking about oatmeal. About 20 yrs ago my dr was freaking out about my cholesterol levels. Wanted to put me on statins. I said she should give a year to excecise and make some changes. A year later she couldn’t believe how improved my levels were. She wanted to know what my excercise regimen was. I told her all I did was wake up every morning and eat oatmeal or Cheerios. She was in shock.

    It was a great actor, plenty of great roles, especially Cocoon and The Thing.

    #37 1 year ago

    He was superb in “The Natural.” They could have named the movie after him as a natural at playing an old-school baseball manager.

    Required watching material.

    A guy I work with had this Onion article taped to his door for several years, I always found it amusing.
