    This news will be of saddening interest to fans of Carpenter's "The Thing." I was just watching YouTube reviews of the various film adaptations and wondered to myself if /when he had passed. Like the article says, he played characters older than his actual age...didn't know he was still with us all this time...

    Personally, don’t believe it. Sorry, but he was 85 forty five years ago.

    He was just perfect in The Thing and The China Syndrome and never even had an acting lesson in his life.

    RIP.
