Ron Silver Dies

I missed this when it happened but on March 15 the actor Ron Silver died of esophageal cancer. To me he is best known as Bruno Gianelli on The West Wing. For his role he was nominated for an Emmy. He was 62 years old. A lifelong liberal and Democrat he became a staunch supporter of President Bush after 9/11. In February of 2008 he started his own talk radio show on Sirius Radio.

I was sad to see this on the news crawl one morning as I got ready for work. My favorite role of Ron's was when he played Alan Dershowitz in the movie "Reversal of Fortune".

He was a very talented actor.

This kind of flew under my radar too. In fact, I didn't see it until the day of Natasha Richardson's accident.

He was a solid actor.
