    I agree. I took this one really hard, even though I never met the guy.

    Tim Brooke-Taylor, gone at 79. I trust he's now playing Mornington Crescent with David Bowie and Alec Guinness.

    British motor-racing legend Stirling Moss dead at 90. There were giants in those days.

    Actor Brian Dennehy has died at 81 years old.

    For some reason the role that I always remember him in was the detective in F/X.

    Decent flick. Who was the main guy? The one from Cocktail? Bryan Brown or something? He was popular for a minute.

    That's the one. I think it was that film where Bryan Dennehy was having chimichangas at a sidewalk restaurant when his date took a headshot from the back and he though it was just her biting down wrong on the food.

    For me he'll always be Tommy Boy's dad.

    The sheriff in the first Rambo movie is a close second for me. All I remember of Tommy Boy was the monster truck on Main Street or something?

    My favorite Dennehy role was in Silverado. "Welcome ... to heaven."

    I remember the episode he did years ago when he lowered a microphone into hell, so we could hear the damned scream. I thought it was a comedy bit at the time, it took me a bit to figure out he was just a whack job.
