    Everyone knows this guy. He has been in dozens of TV shows and movies. He died of Mesothelioma, exposure to asbestos. I'll bet it was from a movie or TV set. You wouldn't expect an actor to die from it, more likely a construction worker.

    He also played NYPD Chief Shriker in Death Wish 3, with Charles Bronson. One of the most unintentionally hilarious films I have ever seen.

    The Director of The Longest Yard had everyone who was auditioning for the Guard QB role throw a pass to a former NFL Wide Reciever, who was going to be an extra in the movie.

    When he saw Lauter throw the ball, he was cast on the spot as Capt. Knauer.

    Never saw a script he could say no to (due to a nasty coke habit- sorry, just kidding- RIP background guy)

    Good actor. I think the first thing I saw him in was some episode of Star Trek.
