Wilford Brimley, who worked his way up from movie stunt rider to an indelible character actor who brought gruff charm, and sometimes menace, to a range of films that included “Cocoon,” “The Natural” and “The Firm,” has died. He was 85.

Brimley’s manager Lynda Bensky said the actor died Saturday morning in a Utah hospital. He was on dialysis and had several medical ailments, she said.

The mustached Brimley was a familiar face for a number of roles, often playing characters like his grizzled baseball manager in “The Natural” opposite Robert Redford's bad-luck phenomenon. He also worked with Redford in “Brubaker” and “The Electric Horseman.”:snip:

From Crossfire Trail

J.T. Langston: [Joe misses several cans with his rifle] Why do you shot that old Evans, Joe?

Joe Gill: Well, it has twenty-eight rounds, and I ain't a very good shot.

[pauses]

Joe Gill: I'm going to town.

 

LOVE That Line!
