You'd be forgiven for looking at the thread title and thinking "Who?!" but Charles Napier is a face you'll very likely remember.

Quote

Charles Napier -- the toothy thespian who played everything from the male lead in Russ Meyer’s “Cherry, Harry & Raquel” to the space hippie Adam in “Star Trek” to the Good Ol’ Boy who wondered what Jake Blues would look like with “no f***in’ teeth” -- has passed.

Napier provided the sound of “Hulk Screaming” for TV’s “Incredible Hulk.”

The Kentucky native was a favorite of producer-director Jonathan Demme, who cast him, often against type, in “Citizen’s Band,” “Melvin and Howard,” “Swing Shift,” “Something Wild,” “Married To The Mob,” “Miami Blues,” “Silence of the Lambs,” “Philadelphia” “Beloved” and “The Manchurian Candidate.”

Other key credits include the first two Austin Powers movies, “Rambo: First Blood Part II,” “Ernest Goes To Jail,” “The Grifters,” and “The Cable Guy.”

His final movie was the Jeremy Piven car salesman comedy “The Goods.”


It wasn't long ago that I watched his guest spot in DS9 as General Denning (Little Green Men).

Oh holy cow; he's been on TV and movies for as long as I can remember.
Last time I saw him in a major part in a film was as the trial judge in "Philadelphia" (1993). I remember seeing that in theatres and thinking, "Isn't that Adam the space hippie in 'The Way To Eden?' ." Sure enough. He had such a unique face, and a huge grin.

RIP, Mr Napier...

A reminder that quoting something from somewhere else does not exempt you from the language rules, Baltar. :)
