Toad from "Viking Bikers" passed today. You may also remember him from "Predator" and other films/shows. RIP.

RIP.  Very convincing actor.  He had the best line in Viking Bikers. When Reb was talking about going to Valhalla Toad said, " I've always wanted to go to Europe."  I've always thought this was designed to be a funny line, and I'm sure it was, but I was surprised to learn from a German friend that there really is a Valhalla Germany.

This is very sad :( I'm a big fan of Predator,then there was his role in Viking Bikers and also he took part in the movie Action Jackson (which I also like) with Carl Weathers

I never knew that. Makes it even funnier! :)

"We're all gonna die major!"

That sucks, I heard they hired a bodyguard on the set of predator. But it wasn't to "protect" him, it was to protect the other actors from him. 

RIP

This is sad.  He was perfectly cast in all of his roles.  He definitely had a signature laugh and I am sure most people remember his laugh in Predator.

Quite an imposing native American character in a number of films and tv series, not to mention his earlier, ahem, 'film career'.

I always remember the opening scene from a great film in 48 Hours between Landham as Billy Bear and James Remar (from Buddies) as Ganz:

Ganz: Maybe you should have stole a better truck, Tonto

Billy: You got a big mouth, convict.

Sad to hear Billy from "Predator" has died.  One of my most memorable movie theater experiences-- it scared me to death!  I appreciate the Vice connection, but I try to pretend "Viking Bikers" is just a figment of my imagination.   Season 3 should have been capped at 22 eps.
