Actor, activist Silver dies at 62. (cnn.com)

I know that it's an actor playing a role and all that, but to see him go from playing the head Democratic strategist in The West Wing, to speaking at the Republican Convention was kind of amazing.

His death comes after a 2-year battle with esophageal cancer.

Was it he who had the famous, "His father is the district attorney!" quote from the short-lived Fox show "Skin" that was advertised ALL THE TIME?

I didn't realize he was sick.

He was great on "The West Wing" (didn't he play a Democratic strategist turned Republican -- I remember him working for the Vinick campaign in the last season) and he used to make me incredibly pissed off when he was on Bill Maher's various shows - which generally is a sign someone is either frustratingly stupid or really knows what they're talking about. Ron Silver was not stupid.

Yes. He also starred in the film Blue Steel, where he finds the gun of a rookie cop and becomes a killer.

A fine actor.

Holy Reality Television! Almost every program is a reality show. It's the fad that won't die. (plus, it's summer)
