Ah man, John Saxon is one of those great character actors whom, if you where to pop in any Italian genre fare from the early 60's to late 80's, you could depend upon to give a top notch performance.

He never seemed to become the A list leading man you would have expected him to be, but he remained humble all through his career and left behind one hell of a filmography.

Sad news - always think he's kind of like a cross between Jack Nicholson and Michael Ironside (I'm not the only person to draw the latter parallel, by a long margin).

 I think I probably first encountered Saxon in 'Battle Beyond the Stars' as degenerating space-warlord Sador - a proper, scenery-chewing arch-baddie. Whatever the virtues (or otherwise) of any given film he appeared in, Saxon could anchor it and, if need be, single-handedly make it watchable - he was the go-to man for steely, charismatic characters. His presence was a guarantee of a quality performance.

Hollywood legend Olvia De Havilland has 'Gone With The Wind.' Pretty awful Sunday.

Nailed it!

Didn't he also do a CSI episode which was Written / directed by Tarantino? Which I vaguely remember, and was the only episode of CSI I ever watched!

Loved him in almost anything he was in, but his sheer lazy arsery in NOES 3 was hilarious.

Saxon was a cool dude, for sure.

Like Hawkmumbkler said, he always seemed pretty much ego-free and down to earth (his interview on the Cannibal Apocalypse DVD is a true eye opener), and any actor who who could hold his own next to Bruce Lee...

RIP, Mr Roper, you beautiful cat.

Parker was a great director and a top bloke, by all accounts.

I'll always see him as Blair in The Thing. Another great character Actor has gone.

Same for me. He's one of those actors that you saw often and pulled more than his share of the weight of any film.

John Hume, an architect of the Northern Ireland Peace process, has died. A somber day for Ireland, the UK and America.
