RIP Maury Chaykin

A truly versatile actor, appearing in numerous TV and film roles, far too many to count.    While many will remember him in such films as Whale Music, Dances With Wolves, The Sweet Hereafter, and Where the Truth Lies -- my personal favourite was where he played the first witness that Joe Pesci demolishes in My Cousin Vinny.  The line "No self-respecting Southerner would ever use instant grits ..." had me cackling.

Maury Chaykin was only 61 -- actually he turned 61 today when he died. Gone way too soon.
