Rest in Peace, Wilford Brimley

I thought Wilford Brimey was an under-appreciated actor. Whether it was a relatively light role like Cocoon or as a terrifying bad guy in The Firm, his range was amazing.

The role that was most outstanding was as the U.S. Deputy Attorney General in Absence of Malice. The movie is about malpractice in journalism and malpractice at the Department of Justice. Brimley was the good guy -- and, he made the most of the role. The move also stars Paul Newman and Sally Field.

I cannot find a clip online of his entire performance. But, the movie is more important than ever. If you can find a copy, watch it.
