Rip Torn and Freddie Jones

Leave a comment

Today we lost two great character actors, that we mentioned in the past when we were talking about lost franchises.
Rip Torn was Maax in The Beastmaster, from 1984, and Freddie Jones was one of the many fine British actors that appeared in Krull, in 1983.

Both actors had many other genre credits in their CV – most notably Men in Black for Torn and Dune for Jones.

They will be missed.
