OK, the rest of you celebrities out there can now breath a sigh of relief and rest easy, at least until the next celebrity passing. Number three is official. Dennis Weaver passed away today at his home in Ridgway Colorado.
Weaver is probably best know for the 1970-77 detective series, McCloud but my personal Weaver favorite has to be the 1971 film Duel directed by a young Steven Spielberg. Weaver plays a mild-mannered (did he ever play any other type) business man who finds himself in a death race with a psychotic, faceless trucker. All we ever see of the trucker is his boot on the gas pedal and the occasional hairy arm. Great suspense flick and well worth checking out.
In any event, Dennis is gone and Hollywood celebs are off the hook...for now.
