R.I.P.

One of Britain's most reliable and longest-working character actors. Finney made his fame back in 1963 as Tom Jones in the delightfully sinful movie of the same name, but he continued to get chewy roles (Kincade in "Skyfall," Hirsch in Jason Bourne movies) right up until his retirement a few years ago. But my favorites are two roles of his which bookended the '80s, as Dewey Wilson in the underrated "Wolfen," and Leo in the early Coen brothers classic, "Miller's Crossing."

Thanks for a lot of fun movies, Mr. Finney.
