What a pity, I saw an interview with him when he was doing the absolutely horrible Spanish Movie, but he was really funny and charming on the interview.

And I agree Forbidden Planet one of the sci-fi classics of all times and not too many people recognize him on it.

Rest in peace.

sad news

Forbidden Planet was also a fav sci-fi film of mine and paved the way for Star Trek.

Perfect dead-pan delivery. It was always a bit hard for me to take his brother Erik seriously in his post as Deputy Prime Minister of Canada because of their similarities.

He could make nice comedy with simple things of life. Sad news indeed.

He had just done some public access stuff here for the City of Phoenix. He played a...cop!

As good a run as anyone could ask for. Wish I could have thanked him in person for all the joy.

Kind of interesting that he was born in the same city that I live in. :)

Same as cresshead, Forbidden Planet is a classic and my favourite Nielsen film. R.I.P.
