    It's kind of a sad state of affairs when the world knows him as "mermaid man" and not for all the incredibly kick-a$$ movies he's been in. Then again, I get it, times have changed. People don't care much one way or the other, but it truly is a sad day. He was an awesome talent.

    Agreed. And people seem to forget that he's an Academy Award winner.

    The man was a WW2 Vet. People should recognize that before anything else.

    Even for an old school guy like me, its just the way thing is. Mcguiness hated being known as obi wan. Orson welles last role was unicron.

    That said, dudes been a character actor for most of his life n this is just a way to reach new audience. To 80s kid like me he'll always be airwolf sidekick with moments of 'hey thats him in the black hole abd gattaca'.
