RIP Mr. Torn.
He has been in so many great flicks. RIP
|A man's got to know |
He was an old favorite of mine, he had some great roles. RIP

Love that guy's work. RIP Rip.

Enjoyed his work.
He was the murderer on a Columbo episode-always something to have on your resume.
Very good, bendable.
Yeah, I liked his work. When I was young, the 1961 film King of Kings played frequently during Easter and Christmas, so I first saw Mr. Torn when I was a very young. He played Judas in the film.
Just as a couple of examples, I liked him in Walter Hill's Extreme Prejudice. He was a hoot in Men in Black. He was a busy man with 191 film and TV acting credits to his name.

And bound to be worse before it mends;
Better lie up in the mountain here

While the stars go over the lonely ocean" - Robinson Jeffers

A good performer. I will miss him.

(Didn't he "wander" into a bank all drunk and pass out a few years ago?)

My favorite scene that I can recall right now was Patches O'Houlihan with a bunch of wrenches. Hilarious.
RIP, Mr. Torn.

He was illegally carrying a firearm at the time as well. Said he thought he was breaking into his own home.

Really had a distinctive voice, when he spoke, you knew who was speaking.
RIP Mr Torn.
The first thing I saw him in that I can remember is when he played Col. Fargo in “By Dawns Early Light”
Sad to hear this. A very gifted actor and even his name was unique.
.....never marry a woman who is mean to your waitress.
Sad news, I liked him.
A distinctive presence.
And for a perhaps dubious honor, wasn't there a moment in a Tom Clancy novel (or one from some similar author) in which a Soviet officer/official mentions Rip Torn as an example of American decadence?

RIP Rip. Have a Salty Dog. Drink it, you pussy.
A man who does not read has no appreciable advantage over the man who cannot read.
Rip Torn was often cast as a heavy in his younger days. I remember him as Slade in The Cincinnati Kid:
"I want to see that 'old man' gutted!"
"We're after men - and I wish to God I was with them. The next time you make a mistake, I'm going to ride off and let you die." - Deke Thornton, - The Wild Bunch
