Wilford Brimley Quotes

United States, Actor
September 27, 1934August, 1, 2020.

Anthony Wilford Brimley was an American actor who has appeared in films and television series. After serving in the Marines and doing a variety of jobs including ranch hand and wrangler, Brimley became an extra for Westerns, and in little more than a decade he had established himself as a character actor in films such as The China Syndrome 1979, The Thing 1982 and The Natural 1984. His trademark mustache, accent and brusque delivery made Brimley recognizable, but forthrightness on screen was on occasion matched by bluntness on set when his interpretation of a character was being faulted. Brimley's weather-beaten appearance enabled him to be convincing as someone decades older in the film Cocoon 1985.
