    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    Sad to hear. He was a great actor with great range. First saw him in Weird Science as the douchebag brother of Wyatt who Lisa turned into this:



    He was a favorite of James Cameron having been used in The Terminator, Aliens, and Titanic. I agree with Gator that there isn't a movie that I've seen him in that wasn't a good movie. He will be missed.

    I haven't watched Weird Science in a long time. I had not realized he played Wyatt. That is a very funny movie. I liked him in Titanic and Tombstone. I didn't like Twister, though, mainly because I think tornado chasers are crazy. I also liked the HBO series Big Love. He made a polygamist into a sympathetic character.

    RIP. Too young.
