You know what? Throw Nighthawks in there as well. There are others I'm sure, but those are the two that immediately spring to mind.

In addition to those, I've seen Flesh + Blood, Hobo with a Shotgun, the Merlin NBC miniseries from the '90s, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992), and movies I'm sure everyone here has already seen, Sin City and Batman Begins. I recommend all of them because his presence, charisma and professionalism always elevated the material.

Damn. I watched The Legend of the Holy Drinker, the film he made with Ermanno Olmi, a little over a week ago. Very unlike most of Rutger Hauer's roles, and for that reason alone worth seeing, to witness his range. But it's also a beguiling film just brimming with wonder and generosity. Like watching the hopeful dream of a hopeless dreamer.

RIP Rutger. One of my favourite actors ever since childhood. But I always missed the opportunity to see The Legend of the Holy Drinker, so I'll try and correct that today.

Along with Blade Runner, Turkish Delight is my favourite performance of his. Soldier of Orange and The Hitcher are also must-sees. And I have to see Eureka.

RIP Russi Taylor, voice of Minnie Mouse and various Simpsons characters (Martin Prince, etc.)
Martin Prince was always a way better character than Ralph Wiggum and I'm not willing to hear any counterarguments

I know we've had many discussions about Peter Fonda's merits as an actor, but I just wanted to say that The Hired Hand, the movie he directed after Easy Rider, is a great hidden gem out of the western genre, a tender hypnotic tale like you have seen very few of. Not perfect, but definitely interesting. Also features a great performance by American treasure Warren Oates.

Yes. He totally fitted the part, or, I should rather say, the part fitted him.

Whether it was based on Terry Melcher or Bert Schneider (likely both), Fonda had intimate insight on the role.

One of the strangest of all of the 20th Century musical tragedies. The Devil & Daniel Johnston is one of the most frightening documentaries for anyone of any degree of artistic sensitivity. (And if that don't beat all, I also only just learned that Roky Erickson passed away back in May.)

This one really hurts. I was lucky enough to see him at a convention a few years ago and he made the panel he was in a blast. He seemed like such a funny, friendly and kind-hearted guy.

Sid Haig died. It was to be expected after his recent hospitalization and Zombie's interview about having to minimize his role in the 3 From Hell. Still a big loss for cult and exploitation cinema. He was almost always better than his projects.

On the screen, he was terrifying. In person, he was the nicest guy you could imagine. I heard he did a couple of horror conventions right before he went in the hospital, even though he couldn't walk. He loved horror fans and they loved him.

I have only seen a handful of Sid Haig movies, but I always enjoyed his presence in them. Besides having a very memorable face, the man was also a very good actor, and wasn't afraid to really "go there" with his performances.

I will watch Pit Stop tonight to honor him.

I also had only seen a handful of Haig's films, but I second every one that said his presence was always felt. I had also read a couple of interviews with him and he really seemed like a nice guy. RIP.

Big fan of this one. He's set up to play a heavy, but finds these really lovely grace notes in his performance. The movie's a great case of a small budget and B-movie subject not stopping the filmmakers from making the best damn movie they could.

RIP Mr. Forster. He was one of those actors you took note of whenever he was onscreen. I really liked his work in The Descendants and he had a great supporting role in Small Town Crime with John Hawkes. And he'll be reprising his role as Ed in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.
