One of my personal favorite character actors has dies.  Never even realized he was 91 years old. Loved him in Alien and Escape From New York. RIP.

Really sad to hear of his passing. He made many, many films greater with his presence for decades going back to bit roles in many studio era Westerns to his many appearances with Warren Oates in films such as 92 in the Shade and Dillinger, his iconic roles in Red Dawn, Paris Texas and Repo Man, and of course his frequent collaborations with David Lynch.

He was the most grounded part in Lynch's Wild at Heart as an ill-fated private eye and he had most recently reprised his Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me role of Carl Rodd in the new series going from a late-waking grouch in the film to a softer soul in the new series.

The man was a legend who thankfully in recent years has been seen as such by many people. His hometown in Kentucky holds a film festival annually showing some of his films and there's even a documentary "Partly Fiction" exploring his life and laid-back philosophy that has received a lot of acclaim. Roger Ebert once said of Harry Dean "no movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad."

RIP, Harry Dean. You were one of the best.
