until Tsu saw that he was in a recently made movie! At first I assumed that he didn't have any lines and that this might explain it... Really though this is just too weird. Did he get cancer, or have an accident, and almost die? I could swear that I heard Laura Dern talking about this a few years ago, and I was certain that she said that he had died. Having been a Bruce Dern fan since Silent Running, I was sad to hear about this, so it's hard to understand how I got this wrong - it was not something that I would only catch in part with limited interest.
