    Great actor, many memorable roles including his Oscar nominated appearance in Network. He was only on screen for a few minutes, but it was a classic performance.

    Every role he played he stole the scene. RIP to one of the greats.

    Aw, shucks. He was a Kentucky boy (Louisville, in his case, which is a pretty good distance from my hometown.) My brother interviewed him for our local newspaper a few years ago, said he was a really nice guy.

    RIP, my good man. To me, he'll always be Otis, Lex Luthor's sidekick in 1978's Superman.

    Fantastic actor - felt horrible for him after Deliverance and how he was infamous for THAT scene. He was basically emasculated.
