I really liked Charles Durning, he was a wonderful character who could carry any scene he was in. Remember Tootsie and Queen of the Stardust Ballroom, just as good in comedy or drama.

When his autograph came out in NCIS it was the first one I picked up because I was fan. RIP Mr. Durning.

Loved him as Pappy O'Daniel in O Brother Where Art Thou.

Will miss him.

I enjoyed him in a lot of roles: The Sting, The Muppet Movie, and The Hudsucker Proxy stand out in my memory, along with the previously mentioned O Brother Where Art Thou? I'm sure there are many, many more roles I'm not thinking of. He was a great actor.
