RIP Freddie Jones

Freddie Jones dead at 91.

I remember him most from Krull and Dune. He could grab your focus anytime he was on screen.

Krull and Dune yep yep. RIP.

Soon as I saw the title though I thought it was Vinnie Jones . I thought "his wife just died...oh no did he...?" but nope when I saw the age in the link I knew I was wrong.

Indeed, he was certainly a talented and memorable character actor.

I also remember him for his roles in The Elephant Man and Firefox, too. I must admit though, I was somewhat surprised to learn he was still around at all considering he seemed to play mostly older characters in movies of the 1980s like Dune, Krull, and Firefox.

There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." -- Daniel Webster

He was also in "Children of the Stones" which was creepy as all get out when I was a kid - and had GARETH THOMAS~! (Blake) in it. Good stuff.
