RIP Henry Gibson


Henry Gibson, whose name you might not know but whose face you'll almost certainly recognise, has died at home in Malibu, a week before his 74th birthday.

Gibson's hangdog expression disguised a great talent for deadpan comedy. His first movie role was in Jerry Lewis' original The Nutty Professor in 1963, and he was a regular on the sketch show Rowan and Martin's Laugh In from 1968 to 1971 alongside Lily Tomlin and Goldie Hawn. One of his characters was a flower-wielding poet, all of whose material was written by Gibson himself.

Robert Altman cast him four times, in Nashville, The Long Goodbye, A Perfect Couple and Health, and Joe Dante used him three times, giving him the role of Tom Hanks' nemesis in The 'Burbs, Mr Wormwood in Innerspace, and a cameo in Gremlins 2. He was the leader of the Illinois Nazis in John Landis' The Blues Brothers.

In recent years he'd had a recurring role on Boston Legal as a judge, and played the priest officiating several of the weddings in Wedding Crashers. His final role was in Rob Schneider's directorial debut Big Stan last year.

Lois Joan Geiger, his wife since 1966, died two years ago. The couple had three sons.

Re: RIP Henry Gibson


Man, 2009 will become THE year of celebrity deaths.

I always find it strange to watch a movie and know that the person you see there is already dead.

Now Hans is the only one who's left from the Klopeks. How unfortunate for the Klopeks.

Mr. Seznick is also already dead. The neighbourhood is decreasing.

Re: RIP Henry Gibson


This makes my heart very sad. I have fought back tears since, I got home today from work, and Kenny was telling me someone from The Burbs past. Before he could even say who it was, I said, it's the guy who played Dr.Klopeck and he told me I was right. I just felt it...He will be sadly missed. I will be watching The Burbs today as many times as I can, in honor of Mr.Gibson. My he rest in peace............

They don't say WHY he died. I hope he didn't suffer much. Although guys usually become a littler older nowadays than 73.

I wonder if any of the Burbs cast attended the funeral?

Wow, I must have been living under a rock or something. This is the first I've heard of this. RIP Henry Gibson. He was one of my favorite actors/comedian of all time.
