Charles Durning is dead

I had no idea he'd led such a hard life:

I saw him in The Gin Game in NY many years ago. Terrific, magnetic actor.

Yes, he led a fascinating life. I've often thought that his life story would make an excellent film.

Wow, damn shame. He was great in 'O Brother Where Art Thou?'.. Matter of fact, pretty damn good in everything he was in.

Most of the obituaries left out his portraying the President in TWILIGHT'S LAST GLEAMING. In fact, it was one of Durning's own personal favorite roles.
