Pat Hingle dead at 84

Veteran actor Pat Hingle most notable for playing Commissioner Gordon in the Batman movies has died. He was suffering from blood cancer the last few years. He was 84. He career began back in 1954 with a small role in "On the Waterfront". He made numerous appearance on TV and in the movies. My favorite role of his was in 1963 on the Twilight Zone episode "The Incredible World of Horace Ford" Pat was one of the many old world character actors whose face we knew but not his name. Thank you Pat for you all your fine work. 1924-2009
