Low key and a great actor who left his mark in the entertainment world.  May he be at peace with God.

Loved him in Midnight Run as Alonso Mosely.  He was good in every role I saw him in, though.

 

RIP

Thanks for letting us know.  I always enjoyed watching him.

 

I can hear his voice, so distinctive.

 

He provided us with many good movies.  He will be missed.

I loved him in Homicide: Life on the Streets.  That was a great show and he was great in that role.

Loved him in Alien.  

  

Also I particularly remember him (and I bet he himself wanted to forget) in that old 80s bodice-ripper mini series Harem with Omar Sharif.

 

I still watch that mini-series every now and again.

It’s dated, it’s cheesy, it’s great.
