I read the obituary page while sitting in the gym lobby this morning. (I know, I'm old. Got it.) Today's minor-league famous person was George Furth. It listed all of these theatrical things he did, and had a picture of him next to Steven Sondheim. (Huh, so that's what Sondheim looks like. Sort of a cross between Richard Branson and Richard Chaimberlain.)

I knew I'd seen him in something, because I immediately recognized his face. The obit mentioned that he was a character actor and listed some better known roles. None of them matched my impression of him though. Weird.

On the drive home, it hit me. He was The Egg in Megaforce.

Mr. Furth, You So Totally Rock!

[ObKane: Henry Silva, for all your Silva needs!]

or Not

Very sad, though a long life well-lived. I've always enjoyed his work. I guess now I'll just have to console myself with Henry Silva...

For All Your Silva Needs!

(Unfortunately, I can't find enough references on the web to make this statement make sense without explaining it. Short form: In KFM, Silva had a brief (apparently uncredited) cameo doing a show called "Bullsh*t or Not!". The phrase above was the recurring joke in an MST3K every time Silva came on the screen. And now you know...wait, that's someone else's catchphrase, though it was used in a Freakazoid episode which also included a Jack Palance parody. Free association, la, la.)
