Actor Charles Durning, king of character actors passed away last night on Christmas Eve at his home in Manhattan. He was 89 years old. He died of natural causes.


“I was born a character actor,” Durning told USA TODAY in 1990, when he starred as Big Daddy in a Broadway revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. “I was born looking older — and I’ve been aging since I was a teenager.”


Over the last ten years, he voiced Francis Griffin on The Family Guy. He also co-starred in such classics as ‘The Sting,’ ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou,’ and ‘Tootsie.’  He has 207 acting credits on his IMDB page.
