Burt Young, better known as Paulie in the Rocky movies, passed away at 83 earlier this month.  He is survived by his daughter.  His wife passed way back in 1974.  I hope he and his wife are together again.

@Linmo Just saw that on Yahoo. I just watched an old episode of L&O SVU he was in and was quite good.

@Love my grandkids  I saw the same episode of SVU today.  I remember reading that he didn't like all of the hoopla of being an actor and stayed out of the spotlight.

Thanks for telling us about this @Linmo. I remember him from M.A.S.H too. He was always wearing a hat.

Shame on me ~ I thought he had already passed. He was such a good actor.

RIP!!! I haven't seen him in too much else, but he sure played his role as "Pauley" very well.....

It always amazes me how many people are truly inspired artists (painters, sculptors, etc.) yet don't look how we expect them to look.
