Must also mention Friendly Fire, still have it on cassette, just brilliant, he & Carol Burnett as an Iowa farming couple who lose their son in the Vietnam War - Carol Burnett is the star here, acting doesn’t get better than hers in this dramatic role

Deliverance too, obviously

Great loss of a great actor - RIP, Ned

I liked him. Good character actor. In the things I saw him in he played a funny doofus.

Bummer.  Great, great actor.  A real, "every man" type - not the chiseled, handsome leading man type - lending his characters more believability.

Great actor who performed brilliantly on the big and small screen.....One of his lesser known roles which I thoroughly enjoy to this day was as a priest on the classic tv show M*A*S*H in which he visits the 4077th to inspect Father Mulchahey......

And then there's his performance in Deliverance.....

Surprising the correction hasn’t been made yet in the articles & obituary - which say that he was in the movie Gator w/Burt Reynolds - he wasn’t -

but he made a difference even in the films he appeared briefly in, such as Chatahoochie, w/Ruben Blades

His role as the fire and brimstone preacher on M*A*S*H was powerful!  Deliverance!  Living in the deep south ... that movie made me extremely leery of toothless rednecks!  "You got a purdy mouth, boy!"  😉

Brief sidetrack, really noticed the recent passing of another actor, Clarence Williams III - few who grew up in the late 60s-early 70s didn’t groove to the style of that Uber cool streetwise trio as those three sleuths went undercover & cracked the toughest cases w/badness & verve as The Mod Squad😎 - & Linc was the coolest one w/the sunglasses/headband etc

have never seen that M*A*S*H* role b4, tried looking it up - he’s in another religious role as charismatic TV evangelist, Rev. Freddie Stone in Pray TV, about the busine$$-industry side of spirituality

one-of-a-kind actor

Shoot - in addition to Friendly Fire, in terms of top-shelf TV movies w/people famous for comedy in a dramatic role…..must also mention Skokie - Danny Kaye is amazing as a concentration camp survivor, his German accent is so authentic - a priceless film based on a true story (as is Friendly Fire) - so believable & well-acted t’s almost like a documentary

Ned Beatty always quietly elevated every movie or show he was in. Hard to believe his role as the network exec in Network and as Lex Luthor's bumbling henchman (OTISburg?) in Superman were the same actor. He was a a player in some of the best movies of the 1970s (Nashville, All the President's Men, Judge Roy Bean), and still managed to pop up in fun stuff like Back to School and 1941. Was nice seeing him on David Simon's Homicide in the 1990s too. What a career.

Forgot about Back to School. That was a dumb, yet funny movie. Him as the dean that really wanted Dangerfield enrolled was funny. And M. Emmet Walsh as the diving coach.

As Dean Martin, no less. Yeah the Triple Lindy, love M. Emmet Walsh, another great character actor. Half the film was filmed on the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison which was always a trip to see having grown up and gone to school there.

It was a good cast. Also, Lou, from Pauli on the Rocky movies, Sally Kellerman, Sam Kinison, Robert Downy Jr. Didn't know it was filmed in Madison.

Just noticed on the TV William Smith died last night in LA at age 88. 

Big muscular actor who played a Texas Ranger in the TV series Laredo, a number of Biker films and fought Clint Eastwood in Every Which Way But Loose.
