You may not know the name, but you know the face.  He was the crazy officer who wet himself at the beginning of Dances With Wolves.  I knew him best from Wargames.  "Mr. Potato Head.  Mr. Potato Head!  Backdoors are *not* secrets!"

Major Fambrough: You wish to see the frontier? John Dunbar: Yes sir, before it's gone.

Maury died today, his 61st birthday.

He had so many memorable film roles. A personal favorite was in My Cousin Vinnie. He's the first witness Vinnie destroys -- the one who says he must be "a fast cook", leading Vinnie to ask:

Are we to believe that boiling water soaks into a grit faster in your kitchen than anywhere else on the face of the earth? 

His wordless reactions alone during both the direct and cross-examination were the stuff of great acting.

Mr. Chaykin was a character actor extraordinaire. Sad news indeed.

Careful man, there's a beverage here!

R.I.P. Maury


I loved this guy as Harvey Weingard on Entourage. Great character from a great character actor. You'll be missed.
