    I’ll always remember him as Dillon in Predator, and as himself in Arrested Development.

    Rest in peace, legend.

      Let me tell you a little story about acting. I was doing this Showtime movie, Hot Ice with Anne Archer, never once touched my per diem. I’d go to Craft Service, get some raw veggies, bacon, Cup-A-Soup… baby, I got a stew going.

      What about his stew advice in Arrested Development? Nothing like a great stew…or I assume, I’ve never had a great one, stews aren’t for me but damn if I don’t chuckle for that line.

        I kind of liked Arrested Development, but I didnt think it was all that great.

        But still, every fucking time I get the slow cooker out for something “Baby… I’ve got a stew going…”

    This man had such a magnetic screen presence. We got lucky to have him like a Lee Van Cleef of those old “spaghetti westerns”, but among Jawas and Tie Fighters, he was damn near perfect in a perfect role.
