I had met him during the filming of Silverado. I wasn't in an scenes with his character (Cobb) I played the role of Conrad opposite Rosanna Arquettes character (Hanna) as her husband. I later saw him a few times in NY where we lived. Great man, great actor.https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/brian-dennehy-r-i-p

Cool. I have seen a few movies or TV shows with Elizabeth in them. She is great like her father was. I actually remember seeing you in the scene from the picture above. Been a fan of Brian's for a while. I will miss him being on The Blacklist. His recent gig.

Good Poll, Peter.

Although he made some very good feature films, he'll always be John Wayne Gacy (To Catch a Killer).

There is only 1 character I can remember by name and that is Jack Reed, but memorable role, for me Cocoon followed by First Blood.

It was really sad to hear of his passing. One of the all-time great character actors, whom I loved in everything. That said the vote will probably go to one of my all-time favorites, F/X (1986) and Leo McCarthy.

Also... The poster for Welcome to Paradise (2007) is a sad laugh.

I recall his role in "10" and knew he was going to continue getting bigger roles.

"First Blood" in my opinion (Brian Dennehy) is the most effective of all time.
