Bruno Kirby 1949-2006

It's always sad news to hear of another passing, but after hearing that Bruno Kirby passed away on Monday due to complications related to leukemia I just had to write about him. Kirby was to say the least a great character actor. When he was on screen you remembered him. In 1974 he played the young "Pete Clemenza" in the "The Godfather II". He appeared in several movies & television throughout the years. He played 2nd Lt. Steven Hauk in Robin William's "Good Morning Vietnam", and he co-starred in "When Harry Met Sally" & "City Slickers" with Billy Crystal.

He also was in "The Freshman" with Marlon Brando, and in 1979 he was in"Donnie Brasco" with Johnny Depp. Recently he played a part in HBO's series "Entourage". He was an unforgettable actor, and he is going to be profoundly missed.
