    Didn't see him in much, but I really enjoyed his performance in Evelyn. 69's too damn young.

    He was (and still is) my favorite Claudius in Hamlet (early 1990's).

    I always liked his small-ish role in The Mothman Prophecies. A sad loss indeed.

    His role in "Far From the Madding Crowd" will always be memorable for me. That film is a favorite of mine, probably more to do with Julie Christie's beauty than anything else.[​IMG] Of course, the cinematography, acting and musical score also had something to do with my fondness for that film. He will be missed, I always enjoyed his performances. I can't wait for Zorba the Greek to be release on dvd too.
