You'd have thought just this once I could win the pennant.

One of my favorite character actors though he just seemed to play one guy!

Some of my favorites in no order:

 - Electric Horseman - truck driver

 - The Natural - baseball coach - huge gravitas in that role

 - The Firm - nasty security guy

 - Remo Williams - secret agent dude

 

RPI WIlford!

Also liked him in The China Syndrome (co-worker of Jack Lemmon) and Absence of Malice (Federal Judge who doles out justice in the very end).  

He was only 51 when he did Cocoon, Hume Cronyn was 74, Don Ameche at 79.  The guy seemed older than his age at that point but never changed.

And perfectly cast as Frank Brackett, Howard's (Kevin Kline's) dad in "In and Out."
