Ron Silver, 1946-2009, RIP

Hollywood character actor Ron Silver died on the ides of March at age 62 from esophageal cancer. I remember Silver from his role on Blue Steel opposite Jamie Lee Curtis. A talented character actor, Silver was one of the very, very few in Hollywood for whom September 2001 was a life changing event.

A liberal Democrat for many years, his vocal support of the struggle against Islamofascism won him the admiration of many Americans including the President but cost him jobs and friends in Hollywood.

Requiescat in pace.
