That's sad, he had a pretty decent following over here in the states and I recognize quite a few of the movies he was in.

I just saw him in Inception not that long ago.

=( world has lost a fantastic actor. First found him in Sharpe, but other things he was in really brought a character to life. Hell, he even saved Dragonheart from being shit.

Gutted, he was a great actor and someone I always enjoyed watching in just about any role. R.I.P.

That is sad, he was a good actor that could make a shit movie watchable. He knew how to play a good "bad guy."

He was a great actor and appeared in almost every genre going, with numerous accents and could make a bad film nearly watchable.
Very sad.

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
