A star to generations

A recent e-mail exchange:

"My spellchecker keeps changing Krugman to Kurgan. What's a Kurgan?"

"The Kurgan? From the Highlander films?"

Aye! Of course! Clancy Brown, best known to my generation as Kurgan, the most vile, would-be immortal villain, murderer of Sean Connery's Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, mortal foe of Christopher Lambert's Highlander.

Best known to my kids as Mr. Krabs, eccentric money-obsessed proprietor of the ocean floor's favorite burger stand!

Now there's an actor with range. (Gene Hackman, eat your heart out.)
