Actor Charles Durning has died. He was 89. R.I.P.
Mr. Durning was in a wide range of TV appearances and films, received 2 Oscar nominations, and had a long and distinguished career.
Excellent obituary. He was at Omaha Beach and earned three Purple Hearts. After reading it, it's almost amazing he was able to finally lead a normal life after the experience in the war.
WOW - thanks for sharing that...only knew a limited bit of info on his military background. He was even more amazing that I realized.
Yeah, and I posted the link before I got to the second page...
I liked him in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
Another great actor!
Thank You Mr. Durning for sharing your great talents!
Thats #2 right, following Jack Klugman?
May he rest in peace. I enjoyed the movies he was in.
I've seen him dubbed "King of Character Actors". While I can remember a wide variety of roles, I'm not sure any particular one stands out.
I feel his most poignant role was that of combat vet Ernie Yost in the NCIS episode "Call of Silence".
2 of my favorite Charles Durning roles had to be Lt. Snyder - The Sting & Doc Hopper - The Muppet Movie
Pappy O'Daniel in O Brother Where Art Thou, and The Big Lebowski as...Big Lebowski.
Loved him as Tommy Gavin's father on Rescue Me..........
When I went to the imdb link and saw his picture, Doc Hopper was my immediate thought.
