I liked him in the movie Cohen and Tate, in which he played a professional hit man who unexpectedly bonds with the child of his last victims. He did a good job making a man of violence into a sympathetic character.

I liked him, too. You could tell he was hungry. Not a great talent but he always came to perform.

I took a date to All the Jazz and she was totally repulsed by the open heart surgery scene. Early end to that evening.

During the early moments of that number, I got a little bit of a "Thriller" vibe...the pace of the finger snaps and the dancing of the wraithes (although they were quite beautiful unlike Michale Jackson's repulsive zombies).

He was a recreational drug user.

^^ It's good to have a hobby. Keeps the mind active.

Although, considering the cancer treatments, he'd most likely progressed from recreational to semi-pro.
