Jack Warden, 1920-2006

Jack Warden

I first saw Jack Warden, one of my favorite character actors, in the 1971 football tearjerker, Brian's Song. Then his familiar face and gruff voice seemed to show up everywhere--especially in movies with Warren Beatty. He was a strong presence in several other good films, including 1957's Twelve Angry Men, All the President's Men, The Verdict, Being There, and While You Were Sleeping. Warden died yesterday at the age of 85. More on Jack Warden at wikipedia.
