Circumstantial flummery from a would-be spoonbean hustler.

R.I.P. Maury Chaykin

Chaykin as Wolfe in Door to Death

“The police… shall receive… no sandwiches.”

Sad to hear that Maury Chaykin, one of my favorite character actors and the brilliant avatar of my most favorite fictional detective Nero Wolfe, has passed away. I was always pleased to see him turn up in such an eclectic range of shows like Eureka, SG-1, Due South, Entourage and the great films of Atom Egoyan among many others. He always brought a production up a notch or two in my esteem.

He will be dearly missed.
