Did you hear that Charles Durning died?
I've always been a big fan of character actors. If I had a smidgeon of acting talent that's what I would want to be. Charles Durning was one of the best. The characters he played were rarely likeable, but always terrific. I think my favorite was the governor in "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas." His performance of "Dance a Little Side Step" is something I have remembered after years of working with elected officials.
Jack Klugman and Charles Durning in the same week. We have lost two excellent character actors.
