RIP Ron Silver

This is late.

I used to labour under the misapprehension that Ron Silver was a middling character actor with a strangely Mancunian hard-g and an excess of bodily sheen when nude (Blue Steel, for the curious).

However, having sampled the diversity of Mr Silver's ouevre, I am now of the opinion that he was a wryly fantastic fellow with a terrible, terrible agent. And a strangely Mancunian hard-g.

Here is Ron Silver in the role which turned my opinion of him: as Ron Silver. As his quarry in this picture said of him, he is a gifted actor, and so much more.
