R.I.P. Bruno Kirby

How weird is it that I extolled the virtues of Bruno Kirby just two weeks ago, and now he's dead? I didn't even know he had leukemia, and apparently he hadn't been diagnosed too long ago. He will certainly be missed in the movie world. He was a hard-working actor you recognize easily, but who was not a "celebrity" who thrust himself in the limelight, ad nauseum. He also often had a killer 'stache and a pretty bitchin' real name: Bruno Giovanni Quidaciolu.

Here he is with Billy Crystal in "When Harry Met Sally".

iPod: "Niagara" by Braid.
