    He was one of those guys who was in everything, but you could never remember his name.

    RIP Mr. Polito.

    He did a ton of character work, in his life. I mostly remember him from The Rocketeer and at least one episode of Seinfeld. Didn't realize until now, that he actually played Commissioner Loeb in both the Batman: Year One animated movie and in Batman: Arkham Origins.

    For Daredevil: Think you mean Joe Pantoliano as Ben Urich


    Yep, he was one of those actors (character actors) that you saw in everything, but usually couldn't remember his name, you knew his face and voice tho.

    Also looked at his Wiki (one of the longest list of roles I've seen in a while), he was a VA in Thundercats 2011 too!!

    :rip

    He was also a detective chasing MacLeod in the original Highlander.

    Sad. :(  That's young to die these days.
