Pete Postlethwaite has been dead since 2011.

The first thing that comes to mind is his classic work as Paul Kersey's cop ally in Death Wish 3. The best thing that comes to mind is his channeling of Jon Voight in Not Another Teen Movie.

Awww man... That guy was in EVERYTHING! He will be missed.

Wil Wheaton accidentally got his son killed on TNG.

Here he is giving him his first crappy sweater.

Oh man, he was great in that film! He played that guy who was also in that other film....I think with Kevin Bacon. He was great.

He'll never be forgotten!


/Actually knew who Ed Lauter was. RIP actor man.

The way you formed that headline, Subby, you'll be lucky if you get drafted by the Tallahasee Warthogs.

Sad to see him go, God dammit!

It doesn't look good coach.
Can he play?
He's in a coma.
Answer my question. Can he play?

/I wonder how much a prolific small role actor like him makes over a lifetime.

Dear lord, I JUST watched that ep on Friday (been going through TNG... that ep also had Tom Paris (from Voyager) but playing another character.

Two eps later has a gorgeous young Famke Janssen in a terrible ep,... though 2 after that is I, Borg (a rare good ep)

The trick is to take your earnings and invest them as capital, preferably doing something like covered calls, and living off the interest. He had a few big supporting actor roles long ago, so that might have been decent seed money.

I also wonder if he had a day job doing something parallel. Like acting coach or script doctor.

For some reason I'd always get him mixed up with Craig T. Nelson.

Ed Lauter: Cujo?
[the dog snarls again, and approaches him menacingly]
Ed Lauter: Oh my God... you're rabid!
[Cujo barks savagely and charges at Ed. He puts his arms up to defend himself as Cujo attacks]
Ed Lauter: [yelling] NO! NO! CUJO!

That's who I recognized him as when I saw the pic in the article. That was a good episode. Probably the best "Wesley episode" in the series.

CSB:

Back in the early 80s he was renting a house on Wrightsville Beach while he was making a few movies at the studio in Wilmington - Arnold Schwartzenegger was a frequent guest while Arnold was making movies like Commando and Raw Deal at the studio.

Anyway, Ed was a jogger. Most mornings when there was no surf, I'd run from Mercer Pier to Crystal Pier and back. One day I was passing his place when he came out to run. He joined up and said "Mind if I pace with you?" For a couple months we'd run into each other on our daily jog a few times a week. Turns out "Longest Yard" was his favorite movie because he made a number of close friends on set. I complimented his Southern accent, which he seemed to appreciate.

He was knocked out when I said I actually knew a few surfers from Long Beach NY, his home town. Introduced him to them on the beach one day and it was Old Home Week for a while. I think he even tried surfing a time or two.

Then fall came along and the surf got good, so I didn't jog for a couple weeks. One day I noticed his rental was empty so I figured he'd moved on. He seemed like a regular guy for whom the movie thing was just a job that paid well enough for him to live on the beach, which was his goal in life. According to one of the obits I read this morning, he was living down at the beach in LA, so he made it. RIP, dude.

I've seen him in a million things, but all I can specifically remember is Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise.
