Charles Durning, Prolific Character Actor, Dies at 89

Published: December 25, 2012

Charles Durning, who overcame poverty, battlefield trauma and nagging self-doubt to become an acclaimed character actor, whether on stage as Big Daddy in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” or in film as the lonely widower smitten with a cross-dressing Dustin Hoffman in “Tootsie,” died on Monday at his home in Manhattan. He was 89.

He was great in Dog Day Afternoon and The Sting. Great actor and great war hero.

RIP

One of those guys who could blend into the scenery or stand out in a crowd. He came from humble beginnings to be one of the best. RIP
