Great character actor. 

I'll always see him in his role from The Greatest Movie Ever Made as Astronaut Gus Grissom... be careful, Gus might have a few corrections for you when you meet him...

Godspeed, Fred. 

The Right Stuff was one of the best books I ever read.  The movie was wonderful, too.  

Fred Ward was also touched by the Creator for being cast in the role of Henry Miller in Henry & June.  I mean finding yourself in a in a Uma Thurman-Maria de Medeiros sandwich?  And getting paid for it?  Very hot scene and great flick.

RIP, Fred Ward.

RIP - Fred Ward.  Personally, I will always remember him as Remo Williams.  I absolutely loved the movie grow up.  It was epic.  And lets be real, American Ninja warrior never happens if it werent for Remo Williams.


Dang it!!   I was about to post that and you found it first.

Also was good in Alcatraz.   Just a great working actor, who consistently worked for 40 years.
