Rest In Peace Richard Lynch.
There are many shows and movies you will remember him from. This picture is from Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween.
He was found dead at the age of 76.
Some roles I remember are the movies Halloween(2007), Buck Rogers, Scarecrow, The Sword And The Sorcerer, and TV shows like The A-Team and the sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica and Galactica 1980.
Interesting fact about him:
His face was permanently scarred in 1967 when he took the drug LSD and set himself on fire, something he spoke openly about in the documentary film LSD: The Trip to Where?
I always loved his acting. Some would say he was a B-rated actor, that is fine. He always was a draw for me. Any movie role he played, which usually was a villain type role, he did very well. I guess maybe due to his scars and his expressions. He always looked real pissed of if something didn’t go well. SO farewell Mr. Lynch. You will be missed by me for sure.
His last role was in the upcoming movie by Rob Zombie, “The Lords Of Salem.”
He plays Reverend John Hawthorne. Hopefully its deep in production that his role is complete. I personally can not wait for this movie to come out!
