RIP: Wilford Brimley — A True Natural
Veteran character actor Wilford Brimley, probably best known as one of the stars of Ron Howard's wonderful sci-fi classic Cocoon (1985) and the Barry Levinson film, The Natural (1984) starring Robert Redford, has passed away this August 1st, 2020. Wilford decided at a rather late age of 34 to try out acting. This was because he had gained weight and could not perform in rodeos anymore! He found work almost immediately as an extra in the movie True Grit (1969) starring John Wayne. Then shortly after, TV and movies came a calling. He would end up being in several high profile movies. This quote by Wilford probably best sums up his "Natural" acting style and the reason for his popularity. "I just try to be myself." Well, when you're a very likable fellow, "being yourself" can have its advantages! Thank you Wilford. Condolences to all of Wilford's family. We will miss him too. Which movie with Wilford co-starring in it is your favorite? After voting, please discuss here.
