No More Maury Chaykin (1949 - 2010)

Character actor Maury Chaykin passes away on his birthday, in Toronto, at age 61.

- Read his obituary at CBC News.

Bye-Bye, 'That Guy'...

It was a pleasure to have drawn a bead on you over the course of many years and many memorable film and TV roles.

Your performances were so often beautifully larger-than-life,
even if the part was small.

- - Or perhaps, especially.

So sorry to see it cut short. Darn.

- Learn more about
Maury Chaykin at Wikipedia and IMDb.

Loved the big man as Nero Wolf and many other memorable rolls in perhaps not necessarily memorable films and shows. It's a shame he's gone. As you say: darn.

sorry: "roles" :) Maybe some kind of Freudian slip...

This is sad to hear. I've really enjoyed his part in "Less Than Kind" - one of the best shows to come out of the Great White North recently. Sad.

I was bummed when I heard the news. Too young. He was always so peculiar and interesting in the best possible way.
