Rest in peace, Mr. Silver

Actor Ron Silver has died of cancer at age 62.

I did not even know he was sick.  He was a fine actor and will be greatly missed.  No one could have been a better Bruno Gianelli.


MARGARET:  Who's Bruno Gianelli?

LEO:  A strategist.

MARGARET:  Really?

LEO:  He got five senators elected, three governors. He got Hacket elected where
they haven't elected a Democrat in 46 years. He got the Prime Minister of Israel elected
and it's entirely possible that he's never voted in his life.

Leo's delivery of that last bit always made me laugh. And Bruno's treatment of Margaret.

He will be missed.

That scene is a really great introduction to a character, even though we had already "met" Bruno in Manchester 1.

I didn't know he was sick either. This is sad. :(

Yes, it is. He was taken too soon.
