Charles Durning has passed.
Charles Durning has passed. He was the bomb. What a presence on screen, whether it was Dog Day Afternoon or Oh, Brother Where Art Thou? Even as a very old man on Rescue Me. It didn’t matter. He delivered every time. Rest in peace.
Same for Jack Klugman. I used to watch reruns of The Odd Couple sitcom as a kid in Mexico – and Quincy, M.E. with my dad, some years later. Klugman was always a pleasure to watch at work.
