Rest in Peace, Fred Ward


Recommended Posts

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.

I remember the trailer for Remo Williams as a kid, but I never got to watch it. 

Well Sir, you missed out on a masterpiece.  One of the finest moments in cinematic history.

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.
