Re: The RIP Celebrities Thread

Please, why did you take one of the best villain actors around in Billy Drago. Not Billy.

Re: The RIP Celebrities Thread

Rip Torn was consistently the best attribute of approximately half of the things in which he appeared.

Re: The RIP Celebrities Thread

There are so many great roles Rip Torn had from Artie on Larry Sander to Zed in MIB and everything between. Never gave a half-assed performance. The quality of what he was in didn't matter. He showed up. Whether it was as Albert Brook's advocate, John Candy's pirate mentor, or a crippled dodgeball coach.

The one I'm going to post is from a movie that is not very good, Trial & Error (1997), but there is a scene in it where Rip elevates the whole thing. He's playing a guy on trial that is obviously guilty. He gets on the stand and does this.





Gonna throw in this scene from Walter Hill's Extreme Prejudice. Pretty big spoiler in it if your planning to watch it for the forst time.

A personal favourite Rip Torn moment is this one from the Larry Sanders Show

Re: The RIP Celebrities Thread



I'll always remember Billy Drago most for John Bly in The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.

Lord Bowler/Julius Carry and Brisco Sr./R. Lee Ermey are also gone. This makes me sad.

Protect Bruce Campbell!

On a positive note, 89 year old Professor Wickwire/John Astin is still with us.
