RIP Charles "Adam" Napier

Charles Napier, who played Adam, one of the "space hippies" in TOS's "Way to Eden" died today. What a damn shame. LINK

Wow. Didn't know he was in my all time favorite movie, Silence of the Lambs. RIP.

Wow. Because of the type of roles he got later in life, I always pictured him to be the kind of guy who would fight death with his bare hands and his sleeves rolled up. Quite the tough, authoritative guy.

Rest in peace, Mr. Napier!

Wasn't he also in "Little Green Men" from DS9? Classic army-type guy.

Really weird... we were just talking about him a few days ago in another TOS thread.

He was in loads of stuff. Just saw him last night as a cop in The Cable Guy. Great character actor.

Not many people know this, but he also used to provide the "growl" sounds for Lou Ferrigno's Hulk in The Incredible Hulk after Ted Cassidy (who formerly did them) passed away. He really did have a varied career.
