Paul Gleason, Dead at Age 67

Don't recognize the name? He's another one of those character actors that you've seen so often, yet probably couldn't name. Usually when an often used character actor dies, he has a hard to remember name. However the name Paul Gleason is such an easy to remember name for Americans and most of us probably still didn't know it. He's been in over 130 TV/Movie parts. Many well known mainstream actors can't honestly claim that.

He's best known for playing villains or annoying authority figures. He made it easy to hate him. However he was known to be a nice guy in real life.
