Durnig And Klugman...

...died on Christmas eve. Back in the late 50's and early 60's, Klugman, 90, was everywhere on the new thing called television, and for my money was the best worst actor ever. Forever over-emoting, he made the small screen seem much bigger. Durnig, 89, was the character actors character actor, never turning down a role, and, unlike Klugman, never argued with a director or producer. Fact of the matter is they'd never stand a chance starting out in today's Hollywood that searches for feminine male clones and talent be damned. How else can you explain the continued theatrical employment of the Afleck-types.
