James Karen, Actor in 'Poltergeist' and So Much More, Dies at 94
I didn't recognize the name at all, but I instantly recognized the face.
He seemed to play a lot of characters who looked reputable on the outside, but were secretly a bit sleazy and quasi-villains, like his character in Poltergeist (a developer who knowingly sold a home built on an ancient burial ground).
his face is well know
not the name
Remembered him from Return of the Living Dead.
Loved him in Return of the Living Dead and Return of the Living Dead 2
Great character actor and seemed a great guy
Met him as kid and he was very nice and seemed to love talking to fans about ROTLD or any movie (He listened and answered all my questions/etc about Return of the Living Dead with smile on his face)
I know for years he has gone the fan circuit at events for film and for screenings of film
Incredible actor, very prolific and successful career. Poltergeist absolutely terrified me as a child, I have no idea how or why I watched it, but it absolutely ruined me, lol.
You watched it because it was rated PG and supposed to be OK for you, at least with a parent present. Kids of our generation were permanently scarred by all of the dark, scary movies with PG ratings that came out in the early 80s, before PG-13 was introduced. I had nightmares for two months because of 1980 Disney movie... a Disney movie. I'd rather not talk about that, even with a "therapist" (which is a bit amusing that you became).
Separate names with a comma.
