At 95 it was only a matter of time but no less sad. Thanks for the great performances. RIP.

Oh man, most recent film of his I watched was Red (2010) - only a small part, though - and he still looked fantastic for his age. Sad news, he was a great actor. R.I.P.

95 is a fine innings but still very sad to hear of his passing. R.I.P Ernie

I saw him in a TV series a while ago, one of those doctors series I occasionally watch with my wife, ER or Grey’s Anatomy, don’t remember which one of the two. It was then that I discovered he was still alive. Hadn’t seen him in a while in a proper movie.
