Donald Moffat actor in "The Thing" dies

I mostly remember him from this film. I know he has acted in many others that I'll have to Google.

‘The Thing’ actor Donald Moffat dead at age 87

My most memorable scene of him is this:

Wow. That guy was in all kinds of shit.

That movie is one of my favorites and one of the few that old that has stood the test of time.

I reference the scene where they catch the alien changing into the sled dog whenever someone asks what kind of dog we have. gets a laugh from anyone over forty, younger not so much.

I also remember him as the President in Clear and Present Danger and Lyndon Johnson in The Right Stuff.



And about a million other things: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0595567/

I just watched The Thing a couple of weeks ago - a classic that is still great to watch. Good actor, one of those guys you would see in a film and go - "hey I know that guy from so and so"

IIRC, he was not only in The Thing, he was in fact The Thing.

But, I am 51 and can't CRS.

In the very first black & white Thing. James Arness aka Matt Dillion aka homosexual was the Thing I believe.
