For some reason I thought he went to ambient temperature over a decade ago.

Always like him. He always said it like it was or how he thought it was.

May he RIP

RIP

Sad, no "good" actors/people are rising up to fill these guys shoes.

All we have are a bunch of selfish, greedy, fuck nuts that only care about themselves it seems.

Who going to fill their shoes?

It doesn't matter anymore. Modern movies and all that stuff these days are dead to me.

He definitely was one of those special niche-type actors,who filled a specific role,very well. Very difficult to make someone not his build or age look and act the way he could.
Its strange,though,how even the actors we came to know from the 80's,90's...are literally falling off mantle as far as their persona on-screen was perceived. Actors we imagined were pretty solid turn out to be empty nothing-bags of flaming liberalism.

Damn I thought he died 2 decades ago. I ate oatmeal all the time as a kid because he used to say it was the right thing to do and he had a trusting face. RIP

His acting career listed below.

Although the last role I saw him in was hard target (1993).

He was in Remo Williams or whatever that lousy movie was. Also thought he had passed away before this.

RIP for him and his mustache

That's supposed to be Beef's "shtick" there Specz, and R.I.P. Wilford.

He was Beef, I'm surprised you have posted the Wilford Brimley Diabetes meme like you did in the Diabetes thread on AKFiles.;)

Lol.
I thought of it, but was actually experiencing feelings at the time and felt maybe it would be disrespectful.

Lived not far from our place in south Utah. Wasn't aware he was a local. I remember when he lived in Kellogg, ID and was when he started doing the Diabetes commercials. He also did the Quaker Oats commercials before that.
