One of my all time favorites.
He was only 85?? He looked 85 20 years ago
I did think he was older and I have to admit, I thought he had already passed away. RIP to an excellent supporting actor in everything from The China Syndrome to the Natural. And who could forget the Quaker Oats and “diabeetus” commercials?
Exactly! Was he ever young?
Was it diabeetus?
He looked 85 in the Firm. I love these updates, did not know Brian Dennehy died until a week ago.
He was memorable for:
Holy crap he was just 47 years old when The Natural was filmed!! He was just a year and change older than Robert Redford.
Did he die from Diabeetus?
I just mentioned him in Zappa's thread on the movie the Thing. He seemed 75 in that movie from 1982
Absence of Malice
I also thought he was at least a decade older than that. It's like he prematurely aged to about 75 and just inched up from there. I loved him in "The Natural" and remember watching his Quaker Oats commercials as a kid.
Not a big Tom Cruise fan but the was a great movie.
Brimley could play the loving grandfather or the meanest so of a Bitch on the planet equally well.
When he was getting beat up in The Firm, I was like "Take that oatmeal man"! Seriously he was a great actor. #RIP
Postmaster General Henry Atkins. Go to 3:04
He was 50 in cocoon. He was timeless like max von sydow
I'm guessing it was his solid white mustache. He was in his forties and his mustache was already solid white.
I'm going to dye mine like Tom Sellek or cut it off.
That the flick where he's a judge? And he calls Newman into his office and drops the line, something to the effect of, "I believe in legal terms that's what we call horse fvckin', and you know it."
I believe he was an Assistant US Attorney General , and he ripped into some of the local prosecutors.His character in the movie would have used that line.
That’s the best! Almost forgot about that one. Newman always cracked me up. “Tell the world my story!“
How many of us can compare well to Robert Redford?
Complications from Diabetes, and more.
He was also the grandfather in the 1980’s tv show “Our House” which also starred teenager Shannon Doherty.
At 40+ years old. Nobody. But those two were nearly the same age and it looks like in The Natural they are 20 years apart.
A Marine - and a blacksmith, ranch hand and wrangler. There used to be a lot of actors like Brim. Now the US actors are so quiffed-out, producers have to get guys from Australia, UK or Canada when they have a manly roll (Rosie being retired).
Yeah, but that look got him the manager’s role, so there’s that...
Oh had the look. Tough guy when he had too
RIP Pop Fisher!
Great scene, Brimley delivers a top notch performance. Subpeenies.
My wife said the same thing.
Brimley also had a great scene with Robert Redford in The Electric Horseman.
A lot of good mentions of his work.
I have a hazy memory of a TV show where he was the grandpa.. only the 80s "Our House" on IMDB seems to be right..
I have a memory of some conman kid painting his house number on his curb and then surprising Gramps with a demand for payment and that cantankerous old bastard was having none of it. Strong old man... who was only 52-54.. hah!
