I think he was a wonderful actor but TBH I’m surprised I’m only seeing positive takes about him on social media because I remember that he was MeToo-ed before Me Too even existed and by someone who is in an Oscar race film right now so very in the public eye. I remember i was shocked then because he just looked like a nice guy! He admitted it, by the way.
About his work, I remember a lot of very good dramas from the 1980s like The Accidental Tourist, Children of a Lesser God, The Big Chill, etc. I remember I really liked him in those films.
