Sadly i think the best part of the last 2 decades he was doing a Biden.

Juan Ramirez. Highlander. Rudley nicknamed The Peacock by The Kurgan.

It was the first movie, ironically given the storyline, I noticed him getting old. 

His absence was notable this last few years and I merely assumed he had developed a chronic illness and was enjoying what time he had left.

Only his daft pronouncements on Scottish Nationalism got me. As he sunned it in the Bahamas. Out side of that minor issue, a great actor.

Was he an actor? He had great charisma, and screen presence, and sex appeal for the ladies, but he gave the appearance of just swanning through productions by being himself. When he played the Spaniard in highlander, he used a Sean Connery accent, same too in The Name of the Rose.

He was an actor in the sense that many of the really big names are: he plays a particular role and he plays it very well indeed.

People like Andy Serkis or Michael Sheen are tremendous actors who can play any character but the big names are people like Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Cruise, Segal, or on the Bond theme Roger Moore who basically just play one character.

I used to think that, but have since mellowed my opinion.

See, once you become a really big name, when the production company pays for you they expect to get 'that performance'.  Thus the big names are limited in how much range they get to play, no matter their abilities.

[Apart from Schwarzenegger.  He really does have a limited  repertoire.]

The poster boy for Red pill theory.

From the Department of Generalisations:

Women are herd animals, they ascribe to believe whatever is au courant yet fannies never lie, they will always long for a Real Man® in bed.

Always.

He played a Russian submarine captain in Hunt for Red October with a Scottish Accent.
