What Sucks…The Reaper

Underrated and perpetually bald “that guy” actor, Ed Lauter- you knew him as “that guy” from, “Youngblood”, the first (and second) “Longest Yard”, the horrendous Anthony Hopkins/ murderous ventriloquist film “Magic”, (directed by Richard Attenborough and co-staring Burgess Meredith and Ann-Margret), “Born on the Fourth of July”, “Talladega Nights” and “Trouble With The Curve”, in all of which he probably played a guy 2 days away from retirement who was too old for whatever shit was going down, has died at the age of 74. 

I would be surprised as shit if this dude WASN’T literally credited as “that guy”, in the 60 or so films that appear on his IMDB page. 

Ed Lauter, great character actor, RIP.
