    RIP. Loved him in The Firm, one of those movies I watch every time it's on. What do you think I am around here, a f***ing night watchman?

    Honestly I thought he passed long ago. I’d say he was quite a diabeetus ass kicker to make it to 85. RIP Mr.Brimley

    Another one I watch every time it's on. It surprisingly stands the test of time, unusual for a horror film. Oh, The Firm is on this afternoon on TMC.

    Like "Jaws" it was drama based. The effects and gore were just tacked on. (Although "Jaws" was also more dialog driven too)

    I'll always remember him for the Quaker oats commercials, the Cocoon movies and diabeetus.

    I knew him for a handful of years, he lived about a half mile from me as the crow flies until he got too fed up with the growth of the small city into a much larger and busier one, sold off his land and moved to Wyoming. That was about two decades ago now, I guess he ended up getting a house down south a few years after getting his ranch in Wyoming as well.
    He was a genuinely kind, hard-assed man.
    Godspeed, Wilford.
