2002-11-19 12:21:28 AM

2002-11-19 12:21:37 AM  
Damn, he was a great actor
2002-11-19 12:21:56 AM  
2002-11-19 12:21:57 AM  
Darn shame. He was good in Maverick too. (Freaky, I was gonna say Payback, too.)
2002-11-19 12:22:11 AM  
He should have drank more Dr Pepper.
2002-11-19 12:22:14 AM  
too slow... he will be missed

first..... hah!"
2002-11-19 12:23:51 AM  
Weren't him and Lee Marvin the same guy?
2002-11-19 12:23:59 AM  
Best spy movie actor ever. Flint was way cooler than Bond.
I want the ring tone for my phone.
2002-11-19 12:24:30 AM  
you suck Dkmb5150
2002-11-19 12:25:26 AM  
I hope *I* die listening to music. (or doing it)

Frank2, yes. You are correct.

All this Dr. Pepper talk [image from too old to be available] is starting to [image from too old to be available] get old.
2002-11-19 12:25:32 AM  
I'm not sure who this guy is, apart from his being in that "How to Win at Slots" video. But my props go out to him and his homeys.

And he looks like Donald Sutherland.
2002-11-19 12:25:33 AM  
I think his low point was his appearance on Arliss. That show blows goats.
2002-11-19 12:25:43 AM  
The world just got a little less grizzled.
2002-11-19 12:26:08 AM  
Who the fark was James Coburn? The link is not working for me. Oh well, anyone have him in the dead pool?
2002-11-19 12:26:38 AM  
He was good on the muppet show
2002-11-19 12:26:49 AM  
Hey, at least he went happily. Or did he?
2002-11-19 12:27:05 AM  
Needs the 'sad' tag
2002-11-19 12:27:20 AM  
I wonder what He was listening to at the time?

The article forgot to mention he was in Mr. Patman with Gary Chalk, who was in Trapped with Kevin Bacon.
2002-11-19 12:28:09 AM  
Tommy - I heard that he was a huge fan of Wu Tang.
2002-11-19 12:29:00 AM  
I thought he was great in Young Guns 2. Mean gritty old bastard.
2002-11-19 12:29:15 AM  
Ha ha, CaptainZimbabwe. I misspent a portion of my life working in a video store. I know the video you're talking about.

We displayed it right next to Phyllis Diller's video about throwing a garage sale; a jack-o-lantern carving instructional video, and a video of a rapping football team.
2002-11-19 12:29:33 AM  
Wasn't he the host of a Twilight Zone type show called the Darkroom? I know he's done other things, and he did them well.
2002-11-19 12:29:58 AM  
Let me be the 18th to say:


2002-11-19 12:30:07 AM  
He was making a mix tape for Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston

Seriously though, Good actor

Opticeye One should be able to program that into the newer Nokia phones, like the 3360 and the 3390.
2002-11-19 12:30:28 AM  
GREAT in the "Flint" movies. Also good in "The President's Analyst".

2002-11-19 12:30:52 AM  
(.........wipes away a laughing=crying tear at Cornified...)
2002-11-19 12:30:54 AM  
i farkin loved james coburn - he was badass.

why do all the good actors have to die and stupid bastards like barbara streisand just get to live and live and live?
2002-11-19 12:31:05 AM  
To us Canadians he'll be forever known as the slot machine video guy.

R.I.P. James Coburn.
2002-11-19 12:31:59 AM

Who's a bad motherfarker?
2002-11-19 12:32:58 AM  
his 2 best lines:

Duck, you sucker.

That's just mean.
2002-11-19 12:33:06 AM  
You can interchangeably imagine Coburn in Lee Marvin's masterful singing role in Paint Your Wagon.

I certainly do.

I'm doing it right now, in fact.
2002-11-19 12:33:18 AM  
For all of you wanting to know who he was and are too farking lazy to look it up -
IMDb James Coburn

A sponsored Farker!
2002-11-19 12:34:24 AM  
GAH!... I'm an idiot

[image from too old to be available]

Who's a bad motherfarker? He is.
2002-11-19 12:34:45 AM  
That is actually horrible news... no one plays the toughman/evil villian role like he did in later movies, like Maverick. He will be missed.

2002-11-19 12:35:10 AM  
The President's Analyst

Truly one of the best comedies of all time.

He will be missed.
2002-11-19 12:35:16 AM  
His last words were "MMMM BOP" ...very telling.
2002-11-19 12:35:17 AM  
President's Analyst, The (1967) ....
2002-11-19 12:35:36 AM  
GREAT in Affliction...

also the voice of all those Chevy Trucks commercials....."Like A Rock"
2002-11-19 12:36:19 AM  
"He is currently in North American theaters playing a terminally ill novelist in "The Man From Elysian Fields," an independent movie starring Andy Garcia and Mick Jagger."

Unfortunate use of the present tense, IMHO.
2002-11-19 12:37:14 AM  
That Boobies motherfarker needs to be shot. Payback was sick...where Porter shoots the suitcases. farking classic :D
2002-11-19 12:37:53 AM  
The "Like a Rock" guy died??!!
