“FX” and “First Blood,” “Cocoon” and “Silverado.” Loved that guy.
A great gruff villain, a grand grandfatherly sort, hale fellows well met and working men, Brian Dennehy played Clarence Darrow and Bobby Knight, acted in Chekhov and for Terrence Malick.
A Tony winnig tyro of the stage, a Golden Globe winner, an actor’s actor.
I chatted him up a few times over the years and he always came off as the real article. He always ended the chats with “When’re we gonna go get that beer?” What a sweetheart.
What a character. Rest in peace, big guy.
