Some sad news out of California today;



LOS ANGELES — David Huddleston, a character actor best known for portraying titular roles in "The Big Lebowski" and "Santa Claus: The Movie," has died. He was 85.

Huddleston's wife, Sarah C. Koeppe, says he died Tuesday of advanced heart and kidney disease in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Huddleston famously portrayed the blustery millionaire whose identity Jeff Bridges' character is mistaken for in the 1998 cult comedy "The Big Lebowski."

Other credits in his 55-year-long career include the films "Blazing Saddles," ''The Producers" and "Santa Claus: The Movie," as well as such TV series as "The West Wing," ''Gilmore Girls" and "The Wonder Years."

RIP Mr. Lebowski

Mr. CL is very sad; he loves The Big Lebowski and several of Mr. Huddleston's other movies.

I should watch The Big Lebowski in his memory.

RIP, David!

Good idea!  Bit late tonight to watch but maybe tomorrow evening I'll watch in memory of Mr. Huddleston.
