Hah, reminds me of what Garry Shandling said to Seinfeld in Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, when the two discuss getting older and Robin Williams dying:

And Wolf Blitzer says, 'Sixty-three is so young,' and then I looked up with a little hope because I’m the same age as Robin. And then I realized '63 is so young' is a phrase you never hear relative to anything but death. 'Sixty-three is so young to be playing in the NFL'

his surprisingly memorable little supporting turn in Predator 2.
His out and out glee at seeing himself on TV ("Hey, look at me! I look great!") always makes me laugh.

I can't say enough about One False Move. His role and the whole story arc of how the characters are entwined are both just so true and spot on. It's one of those movies that I've made it a point to recommend to people who I think might open to it over the years (even more than I usually would in that situation.)

Well there's Brian Glover...I mean, Pete Postlethwaite...um....

It's an excellent performance and its part of that fantastic move that the film is doing away from identifying with the world of the criminals so much and into the maybe naive small-town excitement with crime and punishment.

I think it's more like a "human being curse" wherein most of them die between the age of 60 and 90

60 is the new 30, so really it's like they died decades before their time.
