Wilford Brimley, a portly actor with a walrus mustache who found his niche playing cantankerous coots
in “Absence of Malice,” “The Natural,” “Cocoon” and other films, died on Saturday at age 85.

Mr. Brimley had been sick for two months with a kidney ailment, said his agent, Lynda Bensky. He died
in a hospital in St. George, Utah, where the actor had a home.

@Region Philbis,
Excuse my asking, Region (I don't value/fear death - It's an inevitable doorway... Another thread maybe) But why do folk post threads on 'celebrity-deaths' and not 'non-celebrity deaths'?

There are 7.84billion folk on Earth, atm - And the 'Value' of existence appears to slide upon 'household-names'.

Seems biased, to me - Actors are liars in character, after all.

What did Wilford (Actually) Contribute to humanity's design, Please?

Have a lovely day
Region Philbis

@mark noble,

mark, you seem to be an intelligent person.

do you really need an explanation of why these types of threads are posted?

if they offend your sensibilities, by all means ignore them.

i am not interested in the philosophical debate you seem so eager to have.

try somebody else...

Alas dear Wilford, I knew him not Regiono.

I did however enjoy.much of his movie and television work.

Several years ago, a friend even made and printed out on his home computer, a number of return address labels for me with Brimley's cheerful face. There were three different designs.

It has wandered around in my head for a while, wondering if he was in any way an inspiration for the character Wilford (portrayed by Ed Harris) in the movie Snowpiercer (2013).

Rest peacefully Mr.Brimley.

@Region Philbis,
I apologise, Sir.

My 'philosophical' side precedes my every interaction.
I did arrive here when the philoforum was absorbed hereunto, afterall.

Mea Culpa.
