Sydney Pollack has passed away at the age of 73.
I really knew him more from his character-acting work than his Directing work, and I had no idea that he was 73. I would have said late fifties, early sixties at most.
I can remember when I first saw him in Will and Grace as Will's father and I thought it was such a great part he played, making it such a likeable character, when it could so easily have gone the other way in the hands of someone less skilled.
