    Hard to believe he was “only” 85. The guy was only 50 when he was in Cocoon and 49 in The Natural. He looked at least 20 years older in those films.

    Was great in "The Firm." Underrated for sure. Good career.

    My wife and I actually watched some of the firm last night and I commented on how good of character actor he was and wondered if he was still alive as he had to 100. He was only 50 but looked 75.
