Sad to hear for sure.  "Benson" was a show I didn't miss as a kid.

Wish I could have seen him onstage.

I think I only saw him in three things. BENSON, BOSTON LEGAL and DS9. Loved him in all three.

Shit.  Nog and Odo in one year.

One hell of an amazing career.

RIP

Solid, solid actor.

Remembering his slow motion gun toss to Mel Gibson.

DS9 wasn't quite to my Star Trek tastes, but it had quite a few things going for it, particularly in the character/cast stakes. Odo was one of those characters that were in the plus column and Auberjonois' performance was really consistent. You got that character from day one, and good deal of the credit for that has to go to Auberjonois. I suppose because of the makeup, I never realised he was that much older than the other cast members (quarter of a century older than Dr Bashir!).

Sorry to hear of his passing.

Yet another regrettable loss. He was great in DS9 and BOSTON LEGAL, and he was also in the M*A*S*H film, among many others. He even voiced Peter Parker, early in his career!

Very sad... one of the very first movies I'd ever seen was the 1976 KING KONG, in which he had a fun role, and he'd been a familiar face ever since.

RIP

Very sad to hear about this. In addition to his Star Trek credits, I did enjoy his vocal performance as the skeleton in THE LAST UNICORN.
