Rest In Peace Rip Torn

Rest In Peace Rip Torn was created by ScienceChic

My daughter saw the previews for the new Men In Black movie and though she's not much for the silver screen or TV, she not only wanted to go see it, but watch all of the previous MIB movies before going. So quite happily, I got to introduce his comedic talent to her (along with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones). For some reason, I thought he'd already passed (since he wasn't in the 3rd MIB); I was surprised and saddened to see this news come across tonight.

Rip Torn, Artie the Producer on 'The Larry Sanders Show,' Dies at 88
7:40 PM PDT 7/9/2019 by Mike Barnes

The respected Emmy winner and Oscar and Tony nominee always aimed for authenticity but had a reputation as a trouble-maker.

Rip Torn, the tenacious, temperamental Texan whose much-admired career was highlighted by his brilliant turn as Artie the producer on HBO's The Larry Sanders Show, died Tuesday. He was 88.

Torn, who was nominated for an Oscar for portraying the hard-drinking father Marsh opposite Mary Steenburgen in the 1984 Martin Ritt drama Cross Creek, died peacefully at his home in Lakeville, Connecticut, his publicist announced.

Quite entertaining! We went in not expecting much based on the reviews, but it was fun, made us laugh, and we enjoyed it. It did drag in parts, and was predictable, but not nearly as bad as the critics made it out to be.

Emma Thompson is da bomb. B)

Think I can still catch it in the theaters, and in this heat, a/c can make up the cost of a matinee.
