    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!"

    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.

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