I was devestated to hear about the passing of Charles Durning, right after the death of Jack Klugman and after seeing The Muppet Movie again on Christmas Eve.
The first film I can remember seeing Durning in was The Best Little Whore House in Texas, and then The Sting. He was a treasure, and was a joy to watch in countless performances.
We are lessened, as a race, with the passing of anyone, especially the like of Charles Durning.
I would rather do a play because it`s instantaneous. You go on the stage, and you know whether it`s happening or not. Somebody asked me “what is acting?” And I said, “acting is listening.” And if you ain`t listening, nobody`s listening.
