Was just going to post about Grodin.

 

I watched Beethoven the other day, i didn't realise he was nearly 60 in it! Couldn't remember him from much else, but i recall him being in Dave.

Seems like he was a top bloke, always liked him. Especially in Midnight Run. He did the same as Rick Moranis as gave up showbiz  to become a stay at home dad (although under less tragic circumstances)

Kevin Clark, 32, killed by a car this week when riding his bike.  I don't believe he did much in the entertainment business, but I remember him as the drummer in School of Rock. 

I've seen that film countless times from when I was single to now settled down watching with my own kids, and this makes me sad. Way too young.

There's a great anecdote in that piece about how as a jobbing actor he did an FBI training film as a bank robber, only to start getting arrested because police remembered his face from somewhere as a bad 'un.

Ned Beatty was one of those great character actors who would turn up in stuff I watched as a kid. He was always great to watch. It's just unfortunate that he'll be best remembered as the wee fat wan that got pumped in Deliverance.

 

RIP.
