    We've truly lost an incredible actor, and from what I hear - an equally incredible person. It's a sad day.

    Agreed. His role as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood was the only bright spot in the movie.

    I've just read that all of the actors that have worked with him say he was the nicest man and a pleasure to work with.

    Does anyone remember the name of the movie where he plays a character whose son fakes a kidnapping so that he can get his father's money? I think Mary Steenburgen was in it and played his wife. That is a really good movie!!

    Very, very sad. One of my favorite actors. Obviously in the Die Hard, and Harry Potter movies, but for those who haven't seen Sweeney Todd, he was wonderful in that.

    RIP

    same here. never have,never will




    Elliott Marston: [O'Flynn and Dobkin prepare Quigley for an old-fashioned duel] I seem to remember you're not too familiar with Colonel Colt's revolver, so this will be your first lesson. Don't worry. Mr Dobkin and Mr. O'Flynn will ensure that it's a fair contest.

    Elliott Marston: [Marston starts walking backwards] I'll just back up a few paces... And to your left a bit, that's it... Now you're right in front of my old pistol target.

    Elliott Marston: [Marston slips his coat back to reveal his holster] Some men are born in the wrong century. I think I was born on the wrong continent. Oh, by the way, you're fired

    Matthew Quigley: This ain't Dodge City. And you ain't Bill Hickok.

    Matthew Quigley: [Quigley shoots Dobkin, O'Flynn and Marston before they can even aim their guns, then walks up to a dying Marston] I said I never had much use for one. Never said I didn't know how to use it.

    I'll stick up for Harry Potter. Read all of the books, loved all of the movies. He was a great actor. He was perfect for the part he played.

    The Harry Potter movies are the only ones I have seen him in. I have only seen fragments of the Die Hard and Quigley movies, so I guess I missed him in them. Don't recognize the other movies mentioned.
