    RIP to Rip

    Rip Torn passed away this morning. I mostly loved him from Dodgeball, but reading the article below had some amazing stories about his life, including the time he got in a knife fight with Dennis Hopper!

    Haven't we all got into a knife fight with Dennis Hopper at some point in our lives?

    Loved him in MIB and Defending Your Life
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I’ll always remember him doing a brilliant Freddie de Cordova impression in Larry Sanders.

    I had a flash of him playing Richard Nixon, but thought I might be imagining things, so I looked it up.

    1979, "Blind Ambition" miniseries with Martin Sheen as John Dean, William Daniels as G. Gordon Liddy, and Christopher Guest as Jeb McGruder.

    the time he got in a knife fight with Dennis Hopper!
    Was it a knife fight or a knife to hook fight after shots of Rum and Scully's catch of the day.
