CNN.com – Character Actor Bruno Kirby, 57, dies – Aug 15, 2006

Bruno Kirby, a veteran character actor who co-starred in “When Harry Met Sally,” “City Slickers” and many other films, has died at age 57, his wife said Tuesday.Kirby died Monday in Los Angeles from complications related to leukemia, according to a statement from his wife, Lynn Sellers. He had recently been diagnosed with the disease.

ACTOR Bruno Kirby!  ACTOR!! I despise it when people label actors as character actors or leading men or whatever.  An actor is an actor, and Bruno Kirby was one of my personal favorites.

CNN also forgets to mention that he was also in The Godfather Part II!?!?!?  Not to mention Good Morning Vietnam, The Freshman and he was in the PILOT of MASH!!!  Bruno Kirby was part of my cinematical coming of age.


Now cracks a noble heart.
Good night, sweet prince,
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

How sad that Bruno left this life so young, how sweet that he left such an impact on so many people by not simply entertaining them….but taking them out of themsleves and transporting them to new times, or new identities, and to new places.
