I was surprised that he was only 65 years old. He seemed to have been around forever. A great actor and lovely fellow.:(

I remember him most from Naked Gun 2.5.

The History Boys - a fantastic play and performance and also in my top five films of all time. He'll be missed.

I plan to watch that film again tonight. Superb performances and great writing by Alan Bennett.


For anyone who hasn't heard it, here's a link to his appearance on Desert Island Discs which is well worth a listen:
