He was also the original (uncredited) voice of The Sheriff in "Squidbillies."

This bums me out more than Jobs.

I'll argue to my last breath that if The Critic had aired ten years later, it either would have been a huge hit or it would have had a Family Guy/Futurama-style resurgence. That show was truly ahead of its time and Duke was that show's best character by a mile.

RIP

He was also the General on the DS9 episode "Little Green Men" where Quark and family travel through time against their will and land in Roswell, NM in 1947.

my favorite non-Orson Welles bit on The Critic that I used to quote all the time was Duke's line about "that colored toilet paper you Frenchies call money" from the Cannes episode.

Best quote ever:

"You're going to look pretty funny trying to eat corn on the cob with NO FUCKIN' TEETH!"

Growing up with that movie, I remember how happy I was to see him in Silence of the Lambs. He will be missed.

He eventually became one of my favorite B actors. When I was young, I always confused him with Chuck Connors for some reason.

RIP

Here are some more thoughts from a demented mind in Central Florida:

And that's to say nothing of his roles in the first two Austin Powers movies (You know, the good ones.), as well as the judge in "Philadelphia" with Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington. Maybe he wasn't the most well-known actor, but man, did he get some good roles in some great movies. And good up on him for still getting roles into his 70s, per IMDB.



Why yes, I am both a musician and a lawyer. Thanks for asking. :)

This is what I meant. Every preview has the voiceover guy say "the face of evil" while they show Claire' dad. I am thinking misdirection.
