So Long, Commissioner James Gordon
Source:The Associated Press
January 4, 2009

Pat Hingle, a veteran actor whose career included a recurring role as Commissioner James Gordon in Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, has died after battling blood cancer. He was 84.

Family friend Michele Seidman says Hingle died at his home in Carolina Beach shortly after 10 p.m. Saturday.

Family spokeswoman Lynn Heritage says Hingle was diagnosed with myelodysplasia in November 2006.

His career in movies and television spanned six decades, and he was also nominated for a Tony Award in 1958. Hingle's last movie was Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, which was released in 2006.

For a generation, he was Commissioner Gordon to three different guys playing Batman.

I do have a favorite line from him, in Batman Returns when they found a Batarang planted by the Penguin to frame Batman for killing the ice princess:

"This evidence is purely circumstantial!"

From "On the Waterfront" to a Will Ferrell movie.

His IMDB entry is amazing. It seems like he was on hundreds of TV shows, including Gunsmoke.

I will remember him most from the episode of M*A*S*H where he was the visiting Col. that Potter recruits to play an elaborate prank on Hawkeye.

I just watched that movie a few weeks ago on AMC. Great, great movie. It was a lot more complicated in terms of its "social commentary" than I ever expected.

While Gary Oldham's Gordon makes Hingle's performance seem a bit cartoonish, I will always remember him as a big part of my childhood, as i saw Batman '89 about 100 times.

RIP

Actually, all the Spaghetti Westerns were. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly especially so.

Pat Hingle in Hang 'Em High gave a great performance and it is one of my favorites.

I guess I have to eat my words on Raimi, but I could have sworn I saw an interview where he said he was gone after three.
