    Wilford Brimley was one of those guys who seems to have been born an old man and stayed an old man his entire life. I'll always remember him as the manager of the New York Knights. RIP

    For sure, KLC. Check out this picture from "The Natural". Redford was only 2yrs younger than Brimley but capable of playing a MUCH younger man:

    I had the pleasure of playing poker with him in Las Vegas for about 4-5 hours one afternoon(back in the early 90's--- a few years after he finished his role in the movie "Cocoon").he enjoyed the game & was very easy to chat with while at the table.

    RIP Wilford Brimley!

    Great in every role I remember him

    “The China Syndrome” one that hasn’t been mentioned here he was great in. I believe it was his first film.
