Paul Gleason Dies

Postby Dr. Duran Duran » Mon May 29, 2006 8:42 pm

I always loved him best as the slimeball Clarence Beeks in "Trading Places". You probably remember him best as the LAPD Chief Dwayne Robinson in "Die Hard" or as Principal Vernon in "The Breakfast Club". :,-( R.I.P. Paul.

American actor Paul Gleason has died of lung cancer. He was 67. The actor, who played Principal Richard Vernon in The Breakfast Club in 1985, passed away in a Burbank, California, hospital on Saturday of mesothelioma, a rare form of lung cancer linked to asbestos. His widow Susan Gleason says, "Whenever you were with Paul, there was never a dull moment. He was awesome." His daughter Shannon Gleason-grossman adds, "He was an athlete, an actor and a poet. He gave me and my sister a love that is beyond description that will be with us and keep us strong for the rest of our lives." The Florida-born actor started his acting career playing a ski resort guest in 1965 movie Winter A-Go-Go after training at the Actors Studio. During his career - which spanned five decades, Gleason starred in Die Hard, Trading Places and National Lampoon's Van Wilder. He also appeared in TV shows Dawson's Creek, Cold Case, Seinfeld, La Law and Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman. Gleason is survived by his wife, two daughters and a granddaughter.

I had this story all typed up and ready to post this AM but I was interrupted before I could hit Submit. How weird.

It's too bad this guy had to go. I "hated" him in all the roles he played, but he was a good actor and he really made a lot of the movies he was in all the better.

Hahaha!!! Ah, that scene kills me everytime I see it. Dan Aykroyd in blackface trying to be a rasta is just hilarious. Though Jamie Lee Curtis looked damn cute in that Sweedish St. Pauli Girl outfit.
