    My first acquaintance with him was as Tom Green's dad in Freddy Got Fingered. If anyone can show me a better comic performance than that, I'd love to see it.

    May he rest in peace.

    Would the Edward G quote be "You're good kid, but as long as I'm around, you're second best. You might as well learn to live with it." ?

    One of his greatest performances has to be in PayDay from 1973. It's a lesser known work but still packs a punch for those who like films from that era.

    People seemed to have forgotten Rip Torn's portrayal of Judas in the MGM Blockbuster King Of Kings. I really enjoyed his performance.
