    Another acting great has passed away, comedic actor Henry Gibson.

    'Laugh-In' actor Henry Gibson dies at 73 | EW.com

    [​IMG]

    He played some great roles as a Judge in Boston Legal, the Head Nazi in Blues Brothers, Mr. Leaky in Bio-Dome, not to mention Laugh-in, and his numerous guest-appearances made on various tv-series over the years.

    He was the type of actor that you never knew his name, "Hey, it's that guy," but you always recognized him.

    RIP Henry

    I'll admit, my first response was "Who...?" but the second I saw the photo I knew exactly who he was. I've seen him in a HELL of a lot of things over the years, and he was always brilliant in them.
    RIP Mr Gibson, and thank you.

    Yup. All these snazzy action flicks with their new fangled technology STILL can't hold a candle to the Blue Brothers car chase.

    I've never been able to count just how many cars and trucks were destroyed in that chase... ah. Dammit, now I gotta watch Blues Brothers. Such torture, I know...

    Thanks for the memories Mr. Gibson!

    Mr. Leaky FTW! I still enjoy that crappy movie very much. Also was very good as the creepy next door neighbor to Tom Hanks in "The 'Burbs". Also let us not forget as the tatle telling minister in "The Wedding Crashers"

    As soon as I saw who he was I was all like NOOO the guy from the Burbs! He was also the priest, I believe, in Wedding Crashers. Great actor. Sad to see him go.

    Vince Vaughn kissed him... not really a high point.
    he also was in a family movie called Luck of the Irish.

    So sad. :(  Found the Blues Brothers in the five dollar bin at WM the other day. Now I have to watch it.

    Rest in peace, sir.
