    Double whammy...Gutted.

    Both passed away peacefully yesterday (24th)

    Klugman 90 & Durning was 89.

    Both a staple of TV and Film in the 70's & 80'S.

    So sad.

    RIP

    Two fantastic actors. Durning was a great villain in Dark Night of the Scarecrow. Rest in peace to both.

    Two of my favorite character actors.I just saw Durning in SISTERS over Halloween.He was a WW:2 hero as well.Klugman was terrific on THE ODD COUPLE and QUINCY:M.E.He also did fantastic work in a clutch of episodes of the original TWILIGHT ZONE (A Game of Pool,In Praise of Pip,A Passage For Trumpet and Death Ship).

    Two class acts,Rest In Peace gentlemen.

    R.I.P. to both.

    Charles Durning was a superb character actor, especially playing the bad guys.
