    I hadn't thought about him in a long time. I was surprised he made it to 81. Maybe I have him all wrong, because I don't know a ton about him, but my impression of him was always that of a guy who lived hard. ... smoking and drinking. But maybe that is just me confusing him as a person with some of the roles he played. He was a good actor.

    He will always be the noble King Priam, to Fart.
    I might consume that beloved celluloid Big Mac tonight in his honor.

    They won't have to embalm him, that's for sure.

    With his death, does the British throne now pass back to John Goodman?

    RIP. Tremendous actor.
