    Default 'City Slickers' actor Bruno Kirby dies

    Bruno Kirby, a veteran character actor who costarred in "When Harry Met Sally," "City Slickers" and many other films, has died at age 57, his wife said Tuesday.

    Kirby died Monday in Los Angeles from complications related to leukemia, according to a statement from his wife, Lynn Sellers. He had recently been diagnosed with the disease.

    "We are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support we have received from Bruno's fans and colleagues who have admired and respected his work over the past 30 years," his wife said. "Bruno's spirit will continue to live on not only in his rich body of film and television work but also through the lives of individuals he has touched throughout his life."

    Kirby was perhaps best known for his roles opposite Billy Crystal in 1989's "When Harry Met Sally" and 1991's "City Slickers."

    Other film credits included "Good Morning, Vietnam," "The Godfather: Part II" and "Donnie Brasco." More recently, he played Phil Rubenstein on the HBO series "Entourage."
    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack. -- Gen. George S. Patton

    RIP Bruno. I don't see The Godfather Part II listed there, but he was in that as well. Always wondered why no mention of him at all in City Slickers 2.

    Yeah, that's the main thing I was thinking of. He was great as Clemenza. Hey, I've got a rug for you!

    Although, he was very hateable (which was intended) in "Good Morning Vietnam".

    Never cared for "City Slickers", but I respected it.

    I love City Slickers, but the thing that annoys me is that the TV cut eliminates the 30 second section that gives most of the insight you're ever going to get into Bruno's character.

    I just read about this, how sad. Was he not the limo driver waiting for Tap at the airport with the sign Spinal Pap? Where they closed the window on him while he was talkin with Marty DeBergi about how the metal music was a fad?

    I thought that was him in that movie as well but I could be wrong.

    RIP.

    Yes, that's him. He keeps going on about Frank Sinatra, or was it Sammy Davis Jr?
