You obviously did not see him in My Cousin Vinnie. He was great.

I remember him best as Dr. Larry in ‘Meet the Parents’.

AN excellent lesson in how not to use your expert at trial.

When he got off the stand, the prosecutor should have asked the court that the witness be excused — and NOT kept him in the courtroom.

In reality, experts are always off to collect their next ill-gotten check anyway — as soon as they are done testifying at trial.

I saw it as well as 5000 other movies. It didn’t make much of an impression on me.

My cousin was diagnosed with melanoma about 10 years ago and underwent many treatments. She didn’t tell her family until 2 weeks before she died that it had gotten the better of her. She worked until the last 2 weeks of her life and went directly into hospice. I saw her in August and she looked like a million bucks. She died in December!

He was so believable as an evil rapist on Guiding Light in the 80’s that I always got the creeps when I watched him no matter what role. A really great character actor. I’ll miss seeing him.

The scene I remember the most was his portrayal as Harrison Storms an executive at North American Aviation for the HBO miniseries ‘From the Earth to the Moon’. Arguing with NASA over the cause of the Apollo I fire.

“Joe, you and the guys at NASA need to take a remedial math course. At blah blah PSI velcro explodes! You tanked up that spacecraft!”

Yup. I have to admit I never knew his name until today. I always just thought “we’ll, there’s old Bradley.”
