RIP. I really do hope that this pandemic dies out soon! That is, the germs/bacteria dies out but those with the virus don't.

This is very sad news... his acting as the Captain in Project Ako has always been one of my favorite deliveries. "GOTTA GET A DRINK!!" is still a reference me and my friends use when we went bar hopping in the past days... My prayers and condolences will go out to him and his loved ones.

Ditto for me. He was one of several characters that made Project A-ko so funny (much beloved)...

He played Newt’s dad in the extended edition.

He was also cast for a minor role in Star Wars, but his scene ended up getting cut.
