    I remember him for being one of the "24" villains and for Speed. He's really good at being the bad guy. Jeanie, was he bad too at Apocalypse Now? (yeah, shame on me for still not watching it)

    I loved him in Hoosiers and Speed, I just found this out a few days ago because it happened while I was in Las Vegas. Definitely a real shame, I knew he was battling cancer for quite some time now.
