    Been a few days, didn't find a thread for his passing, so here it is. Carved out a decent career for himself in the pictures, mostly as an actor (being one of the most memorable components of one of the greatest action flicks put to film), but ventured into some production roles here and there too. A colorful (and controversial) character off-screen, including a prison stint and a couple of attempts at political office runs. Had his demons and probably wouldn't show up on many peoples' lists of most admirable people ever, but he left a bit of a mark in the Hollywood action industry, and that shouldn't go unacknowledged.

    Damn, he was great in Predator. He was also good as a baddie in 48hrs and my favorite Miami Vice episode, "Viking Bikers from Hell."

    RIP

    We were talking about watching this movie instead of staring at the sun.
