Sad. He seemed to appear in every television show I watched. Good work in "The First Duty."

A great character actor - his list of credits was pretty impressive. RIP.

I think it's too bad he didn't play a more significant role in Trek. That scene with him apologizing for his son's mistake was just flat out great, should have been on the list among other actors who Trek likes to bring back every once in awhile.

For me, he's the uppity cop from The Rocketeer. As a kid, seeing him next in a subdued role in The First Duty was a surprise. I expected him to be a hard-ass or something.

If only Wesley confessed when he came to apologize for his son.

"What? You little shit!" *beats Wesley*

Remember him fondly from his A-Team episodes, two of the best!

Both of which featured Tricia O'Neil (Capt. Garrett from "Yesterday's Enterprise). I also remember Lauter from Death Wish 3 with Charles Bronson.

I will always remembered him as the head prison guard/quarterback in The Longest Yard with Burt Reynolds from 1974.

"Game ball".

RIP, Mr. Lauter.

He was a pretty great character actor.

The thing I most remember him from was Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise! He fit right in with those damn Alpha Betas who tormented the poor Tri-Lambs. :mad:

I also remember him as the football coach in Not Another Teen Movie.

Not the best examples from his career, but he was memorable in both of those movies. :)
