Jack Warden

Actor Jack Warden just died. He'd been doing great work in movies, TV and the stage for over two decades when, some time in the 70s and 80s, he became Hollywood's go to guy.

Some of his best work can be seen in Brian's Song, Shampoo, Heaven Can Wait, Being There, Used Cars and The Verdict.

He could play it straight or funny, be a figure of authority or a befuddled mess. Regardless of the role, you always knew you were in good hands. Just thinking about him now brings a smile.

He was in a lot more recent stuff, like Bullets Over Broadway. I think my favorite performance is his double performance in Used Cars, though he's also pretty good in Heaven Can Wait.
