Actor Fred Ward, of ‘Tremors,’ ‘The Right Stuff’ Fame, Dies at 79
Fred Ward, a veteran actor who brought a gruff tenderness to tough-guy roles in such films as “The Right Stuff,” “The Player” and “Tremors,” has died. He was 79.
I saw him, and liked his work, in a lot of films. But he will forever be Earl Bassett, Graboid Hunter to me.
Yeah, corny as that franchise is, I’m a big fan.
