    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

    When I went to the imdb link and saw his picture, Doc Hopper was my immediate thought.
