I was bummed to hear about this...
LOS ANGELES - Bruno Kirby, a veteran character actor known for playing the best friend in two of Billy Crystal’s biggest comedies “When Harry Met Sally” and “City Slickers,” has died. He was 57.
Kirby died Monday in Los Angeles from complications related to leukemia, his wife Lynn Sellers said in a statement Tuesday. He had been recently diagnosed with the disease.
I had not even heard that he was sick.
One of my favorite roles of his was in The Freshman with Matthew Broderick and Marlon Brando. For me, he always stole scenes from much more well known actors. What an excellent comedian!
