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!"

Pat Hingle in Hang 'Em High gave a great performance and it is one of my favorites. Perception is reality
I saw someone say earlier he was last living cast member of Twelve Angry Men.
