The guy has a TON of stuff on his IMDB page, but I know him best as Mister Pitt on Seinfeld. Pretty impressive career!

Damn He was the go-to guy for lots of major roles requiring a well-spoken british man when the higher profile actors weren't available. I fondly remember his stints as Alfred Pennyworth & Palpatine.

Random musing:

Ian Abercrombie's last major credit was as the Headmaster in Wizards of Waverly Place, which just wrapped up a few weeks ago. This is the second time in recent memory that Disney's wrapped up one of their shows, only for one of the big stars to pass away a few weeks later. The first case was with The Emperor's New School, where the show wrapped up and Eartha Kitt passed on weeks later. It's a very odd coincidence.

As JST alluded to, he also currently leaves Star Wars: The Clone Wars without a Palpatine. He was awesome in that role.

RIP

I'm looking for any reason to cancel our cable, and this might just be it. The price point is PERFECT. Programs that don't appear on Hulu - I can wait for on Netflix. My desire to be up on everything has waned greatly over the years.
