Bernie Casey (Cal Hudson, DS9) Dies at 78

Recommended Posts

I had no idea he was that old. I know one of his other known roles was Bill and Ted's history teacher in "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure."

I also remember him in 1988’s “I’m Gonna Git You Sucka” and 1980’s “The Martian Chronicles” adaptation.    RIP Bernie Casey.

I clicked through and found his art interesting. Not exactly my style, but he had talents I decidedly lack there,

I also remember him from my warped childhood memories (and buried in early Stan Winston makeup) in an interesting little TV monster movie called “Gargoyles” (1972).   Scared the hell out me when I was a kid.  It’s one-step removed from “Land of the Lost” now, but hey... I was a kid.

LOL. I skipped around and it basically writes itself. :)

Ah, I remember him also from the episode of "Babylon 5" entitled "Hunter, Prey," where he is tracking an Earthforce fugitive around (one that has evidence to indicate that then-Vice President Clark was faking his illness so he could be off Earthforce One when it went up back in "Chrysalis").

It’s deeply cheesy; watching it today, it’s pretty damn silly (and yes, MST3K/RiffTrax would have a FIELD DAY with this movie) but when I was a kid?  I loved the makeups.  And Bernie Casey (while unrecognizable) has a pretty cool demonic look; gives the late Tim Curry in “Legend” a run for his money...

Tim Curry is 71 and still alive! He was just interviewed about the new It remake. Maybe you are thinking of David Bowie in Laberynth?

Mea culpa.

I thought I’d read somewhere that he’d passed away.  

And no, I did NOT mistake him for David Bowie.  I’m a longtime Bowie fan; no mistake.

He had a stroke sometime back and has some paralysis. That might be what you read and your brain misfiled.

The Rifftrax commentary of Gargoyles is pretty funny. :)
