    Default Pat Hingle dies at 84

    http://www.latimes.com/entertainment...,3930028.story

    Pat Hingle, the veteran actor with more than half a century of impressive work in theater, film and television who was perhaps best known to a generation of movie fans as Commissioner James Gordon in the first four "Batman" films, has died. He was 84.

    Hingle died Saturday night of myelodysplasia, a type of blood cancer, at his home in Carolina Beach, N.C., according to Lynn Heritage, a cousin who was acting as a spokesperson for the family.

    He wasn't a household name, but his solid, broad, hang-dog screen face became a household image. On film, he worked with stars ranging from Clint Eastwood to the Muppets. He was Sally Field's father in "Norma Rae" and Warren Beatty's in "Splendor in the Grass." He played the bartender who needles Marlon Brando about his former prize-fight style in "On the Waterfront," and he was the sadistic crime boss who terrorizes Anjelica Huston with a bag of oranges in "The Grifters."

    Hingle had an illustrious Broadway career and was in the original casts of some of the great plays in American theater, including "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," "The Dark at the Top of the Stairs" and "J.B."

    Yeah, but I'm not a huge Batman fan. So bite me Cubs fan loser-boy. Wait, I resemble that remark.

    I remember Pat from a Dirty Harry movie and a few other Eastwood movies, that escape me at the moment. So he's deserving of his own Obit thread.

    I remember an episode of Cheers that he was on. He played the original bar owner who comes back to work for Sam temporarily and tries to do things the old way. It was pretty funny. R.I.P.
