Bruno Kirby RIP

Sad news to report. Character Bruno Kirby has passed away after complications arising from leukemia. This report from the AP:

Bruno Kirby, a veteran character actor who costarred in “When Harry Met Sally,” “City Slickers” and many other films, has died at age 57, his wife said Tuesday. Kirby died Monday in Los Angeles from complications related to leukemia, according to a statement from his wife, Lynn Sellers. He had recently been diagnosed with the disease.

Probably best known for his supporting roles in City Slickers and When Harry Met Sally, he also appeared in The Godfather II (as Young Clemenza) and – most memorably for me – as Tommy Pischedda, the frustrated Sinatra-loving chaffeur in This is Spinal Tap.
