Brock Peters, RIP

Mockingbird Actor Brock Peters Dies by Gary Gentile.

It would be fair to say that I was a fan of Brock Peters. I'm not sure what our number was, but I was definitely one. He was a reason to see a movie, in my world. Even a crappy one... and there were plenty of crappy ones.

He was one of those names that when it came up on the screen, it meant at least one character would have a truth and dignity about them. He had one of those faces that you can't help believe. A striking smile and a poignant and well-earned tear.

This is a real loss.
