For some reason, I thought he'd passed away a while back.

At any rate, that's a tough way to die. RIP.

Sad. Beetlejuice is one of my favorite 80s movies... a lot of fun.

Demolition Man always comes to mind, although looking at his IMDb page, I totally forgot that he was in Heathers and Multiplicity.

Huh. Wasn't he also in the HBO series Carnivale? I think I remember seeing him and thinking he looked familiar.. then I remembered Beetlejuice. RIP actor guy.

I immediately remember this dude as Associate Bob from DM. Great role.

Sounds like he had a rough decade though... wheelchair bound, his historic home burnt to the ground, and finally killed in a fall. Rough.

Thats shitty. I was just watching Hercules the other day and he was funny in there. Everyone said he was a great guy (in the bonus features)

RIP

Geez, I just finished up watching Carnivale and was enjoying his role. Was glad to see he'd lost a bunch of weight and was still acting.

I was actually just watching Demolition Man the other day and remembered only ever seeing this guy in 2 movies: This and Beetlejuice.

Sad story.

Shitty way to go, similar to William Holden. I thought he was great in Beetlejuice.

The difference being that Holden was drunk. If he hadn't been, he might have been able to summon help. Then again, if he were sober, he probably wouldn't have fallen in the first place.
