    He played some really good roles and was a veteran.

    Cross Creek was a great role for him, one of my Dad's favorites.

    Truly one of the greats... and how can you not like a guy who breaks into a bank because he mistakes it for his own home? [laugh]

    Huh. I didn't know he was an Oscar nominee. RIP, Torn.

    I was reading about him this morning and wondered why nobody was mentioning that one of his roles was in Clue, an eighties favorite. I thought I remembered seeing "RIP TORN" in the opening credits. Then I looked on IMDB and realized I'd confused him with an actor named Lee Ving.

    My bad.
