Every time a Cassavetes player dies, it ruins my goddamn day. But when we're talking about a guy whose post-Cassavetes career involved memorable roles in Buffalo '66, The Big Lebowski, Dogville and Happiness? I'm getting drunk tonight. RIP Ben Gazzara, you all-time brilliant prince of the screen.

RIP Jackie Treehorn. He made one helluva caucasian. May have to pull out Killing of a Chinese Bookie for another viewing, in his honor. Without a doubt one of my favorite actors.

RIP Ben Gazzara. The fictional world of smut lost a great one today.

I remember seeing him at a rally for something at Northwestern Uniniversity back in the 1970s. Not sure what the theme of the rally was, probably anti-war. R.I.P.
