    A shame that the description in the title is all he'll be known for, rather than the actual person he was.

    It's also been reported on by CBS, ABC, FOX, CNN, NPR, BBC, USA Today, and Chicago Tribune

    This blows badly! he's been one of my favorite actors for a long time since i saw Miami Vice 31 years ago and saw Full Metal Jacket on video with my mom and dad when it hit video.

    He was great in Se7en, Toy Story trilogy, Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake and more, a shame he is gone, RIP.
