theewhiterhino: Dog Day Afternoon, Oh Brother where Art Thou, Hudsucker Proxy, and the voice of Peter Griffin's father. Nice career. You're gone, but will live on forever.If you want to see a good synopsis of life as a character actor, check out "That Guy...Who Was In That Thing"/I'll press your flesh, you dimwitted sumbiatch! You don't tell your pappy how to court the electorate. We ain't one-at-a-timin' here. We're MASS communicating!

planes: The Washington Post obituary doesn't do this war hero justice. Read the obituary done by the New York Times , to really learn about Charles Durning:"Then came World War II, and he enlisted in the Army. His combat experiences were harrowing. He was in the first wave of troops to land on Omaha Beach on D-Day and his unit's lone survivor of a machine-gun ambush. In Belgium he was stabbed in hand-to-hand combat with a German soldier, whom he bludgeoned to death with a rock. Fighting in the Battle of the Bulge, he and the rest of his company were captured and forced to march through a pine forest at Malmedy, the scene of an infamous massacre in which the Germans opened fire on almost 90 prisoners. Mr. Durning was among the few to escape...
unfarkingbelievable: What the f*ck is a "character actor?" Don't ALL actors play "characters?"

He was among the first wave of U.S. soldiers to land at Normandy during the D-Day invasion and the only member of his Army unit to survive. He killed several Germans and was wounded in the leg. Later he was bayoneted by a young German soldier whom he killed with a rock. He was captured in the Battle of the Bulge and survived a massacre of prisoners.In later years, he refused to discuss the military service for which he was awarded the Silver Star and three Purple Hearts."Too many bad memories," he told an interviewer in 1997. "I don't want you to see me crying."
