    Never heard of him. RIP, I suppose.

    "Known recently"? What was that, 1997?

    RIP some actor I never heard of and whose death really doesn't affect that many people

    Well, thank God you were here to not only let us know that you didn't know this guy, but to overcome that obstacle to summarize his impact on the world.

    Didn't he die a few weeks ago?

    R.I.P. Whitney Houston, too.

    Yeah, the world didn't exist before 1990. Carry on.

    Somehow he just makes me think "Sunday Night Movie" on ABC.

    In fairness, looking at his IMDB profile, I've heard of exactly two productions this guy was in -- the classic Damon Wayans/Adam Sandler vehicle, "Bulletproof," and "Her Alibi," which I've never actually seen. I'm guessing Stitch is in the same boat.

    I think they're stretching the grounds of credulity when they describe him as "beloved actor" in that obit. He might be beloved within his circle of family and friends, but this guy was not well known for his acting work, no matter how many TV movies he was in before 1990.
