Veteran B-Movie and Film Noir heavy Lawrence Tierney passed away Tuesday. He was 82.

While he will be remembered for his work in the 40s and 50s, popular culture youngsters will recognize him as the old leader of the gang in Reservoir Dogs. He's the guy "that looks like the Thing."

He was also in an episode of the Simpsons. When Barts steals a videogame from a store, Tierney played the store detective.

Here's something that I forgot, shamefully here on the CRZ board.

Lawrence Tierney was in the TNG homage to the Big Sleep. He played the Sydney Greenstreet knockoff Cyrus Redblock.

Try 'N Save Store Detective Don Brodka, that's right, Don Brodka.

He was also Elaine's father in an early season episode of Seinfeld. "You're a comedian? We had a funny guy with us back in the war. Tailgunner. Got his brains blown out over the Pacific. Nuthin' funny about that."
