Kevin McCarthy: 1914-2010

mccarthy_snatchersDamn.

Oh, <i>that</i> guy...

Oh, that guy...

One of my favorite genre actors, Kevin McCarthy, died Saturday at the age of 96.

He earned an Academy Award nomination for his performance as Biff Loman in the 1951 film version of Death of a Salesman, but to most nerds my age, he was that guy who seemed to have appeared in just about every damn movie we watched growing up, including the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers (and a cameo in the 1978 remake), Twilight Zone: The Movie, Innerspace, and UHF, among others.

Here’s to you, sir. You will be missed.
