    Great actor...one of my favorite roles he played was in Absence of Malice and or Electric Horseman. What great shows, both were very small parts, but I always liked em. R.I.P my fine sir.

    Liked him in "The Firm," one of my favorite movies. He played the security director for the law firm.

    Unfortunately he had a lot of health problems. I remember him best from John Carpenter's The Thing. RIP, sir.

    Great flick. WB did a masterful job of digging his fingers into another guy's facial skin, IIRC.

    I remember him from some sitcom in the 80s. Cant remember the name. His daughters family came to live with him. Our house was the name. Had a young Shannon Doherty on it

    Do not speak of Cocoon. It only empowers the dark forces.

    should have been more respectful. the point i was making is that an actor may not really be like the characters they played. could be better or could be way off the mark

    Totally underrated show! It would be a huge hit if if rebooted on Netflix.
