Rest in peace.

Re: RIP James Rebhorn

I wasn't aware of who he was by name, but as soon as I saw the picture I knew him from a ton of films and TV shows I loved. That's a shame. RIP, sir.

I had forgotten that he was in Homeland, but I liked him in Independence Day.

Sad news.

Rest in peace. I learned Mr. Rebhorn's name awhile ago since he's been in so many things.

Thanks Timby. I'll have to watch the movie again and see if I can spot him.

Don't worry, it won't be a matter of "spotting" him; he's easily a secondary character with as much screentime as Robert Loggia or Mary McDonnell.

I think he was one of the best things about Scent of a Woman. I liked him a lot.
