    Good actor that is certainly miss around the acting. His style was very cool and all of his wokr was always done with the passion of great actors. He did a lot of jobs and a lot of acting roles around his career, including movies like "The Problem Child" and "It", and in television with "8 Simple Rules" and "Scrubs". He certainly was one of the best comedy actors of our era. I really was sad when he died.moreless
