RIP Wilford

Wilford Brimley, the mustachioed actor who appeared on the big screen, television shows and Quaker Oats commercials, has died. He was 85.

Brimley died Saturday while hospitalized in St. George, Utah, his manager Lynda Bensky told CNN. He'd been at the ICU, where he was getting treatment for medical problems and was on dialysis.

His movie credits date to the 1970s and include "Cocoon," "The Natural" and "The Thing." He also starred in several television shows, including NBC's "Our House" as a gruff widower who asks his daughter-in-law and her children to live with him.

God of making the characteristic which becomes dirty sends the hurricane.

Always loved him since I was a wee kid.  Just disarming and likable even when he was a bad guy.  His twitter was also pretty fun for a guy in his 80s.  He'll be missed.  RIP.

Not super familiar with his career but I liked him in John Carpenter's The Thing.

I also enjoyed those "diabeetus" memes when I was much younger. Not sure why I thought they were so funny.
It's just a dude pronouncing a word in an unusual way, it's not exactly Carlin.

But RIP either way.

I keep meaning to do an off the cuff review of Death Valley (1982) in which he has a roll....
