Dick Miller Passes Away

If you watched any movie from the 50s to the late 90s you will have seen actor Dick Miller‘s face. Miller starred in everything from “Gremlins” to “Terminator.”

Per Variety:

Miller also boasts a long history of high-profile director partnerships, working with the likes of James Cameron, Ernest Dickerson, Martin Scorsese, John Sayles and, perhaps most notably, Joe Dante, who used Miller in almost every project he helmed.

Miller is survived by his wife Lainie, daughter Barbara and granddaughter Autumn.

Dante called him “one of his most treasured collaborators,” writing, “I ‘grew up’ (kinda) watching Dick Miller in movies from the 50s on and was thrilled to have him in my first movie for Roger Corman.”

Director Edgar Wright remembered him as “the king of character actors.”
