    Aww. I just got done watching his nuts get clipped by ben affleck :(  i thought he looked thinner than usual in the town, looks much older than 64 in hollywood years.

    I think i 1st saw him in the jurasic park sequel where he was this badass hunter dude n also in romeo + juliet in the 90s.

    He was amazing as one of the villains in "Sharpe" and I also liked him in "Brassed Off".

    Absolutely he was... Obidiah Hakeswille was a so-so character in the books.. but Pete made you HATE him.. and yet made it so you also loved seeing him cause you knew he was just going to elevate the whole show with his antics..

    A good actor and popular cinematic ensemble darkhorse has passed. Hollywood is diminished.

    See you in the big game preserve in the sky Mr. Tembo.
