The Television and Film industries are built on amazing actors such as Rip Torn.  His resumé is exhaustive!

From The Larry Sanders Show to Men In Black to everything in between, the man could do it ALL....

I believe The Larry Sanders Show was where I first got to know who he was. Although he's been in many things so I probably saw some stuff before that. But Larry Sanders was the big one. Usually enjoyed everything I saw him do. Didn't realize he was that old. He lived a good long life that's for sure.

Just based on his movies, he’s got a 8-0 record with me. Very good stats from a dependable actor.

Yeah, this was going to be the movie I mentioned. Great work in the scene where he explains that he's reading 1s and 0s, and he's not trying to be rude when he tells the Albert Brooks character, "you wouldn't understand it."

Thanks for the memories.

Yeah I remember it well when I was very young, one of the few HBO shows I was watching...loved Janeane Garofalo as well, it was just pure class.

Yes, that’s 1 of the 8 which comprise that 100% record.
