Actor Brian Dennehy, age 81, died natural causes I believe.

He was the mean sheriff in the first Rambo movie. He always played a solid role whatever he did. I think he was the sheriff in Silverado too.

We liked him a lot, though not necessarily the "heavy" characters he sometimes played. Sometimes a teddy bear, sometimes the meanest s.o.b. around, but definitely talented and completely believable in either role. Rest in peace, Brian.

I caught the tail-end of an announcement on the radio yesterday about a celebrity dying of "natural causes". Then, when I got home, I forgot to look it up.

His agent, Brian Mann, told The Chicago Tribune that the cause was cardiac arrest resulting from sepsis.

Brian Dennehy, Tony Award-Winning Actor, Dies at 81

I liked him, too.

May you rest in peace, Mr. Dennehy.

I always think of Cocoon, now, when I think of him.

Brian was in a cop/detective movie with a guy I used to babysit for...David Morse. While Brian's size used to dwarf other actors, David was as tall, though not as barrel-chested, as Brian.
