    R.I.P. Wilford Brimley

    He's passed away at 85, we just saw him with Bronson in 10 To Midnight on Friday.

    R.I.P.

    I can't say I was a big fan, but he was certainly iconic. RIP.

    Great in The Thing and he's, err, in Hard Target. RIP.

    Great in The Firm as well. Good actor and (fun fact) a former bodyguard of Howard Hughes'!

    I can't believe he was only 85! That means that he was playing an "old fart" at the age of 50 in COCOON!
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

    That is surprising, but I guess it makes sense. I never really thought how old that films was until now. Now I feel fucking old. Lucky he's dead or the Twitterverse would cancel him for being ageist by taking an OAP's job away from them.
