    I am such a fan of this guy. I will watch anything with him in it. I have Deadwood permanently on my list of things to keep on my tv. He is truly a great actor and I was so ticked off when he didn't win the Emmy for Deadwood. He certainly deserved it. I hope he's still acting when he's 100. I'll be watching.
    Most sincerely,
    Carol Sullivan
