    I remember him from the first "Scared Straight" (it was a movie) back in the late 70's. He was holding a dead rat by the tail and screaming at the kids... "THIS IS MY PET!!!!!!"

    Damn. He always brought so much intensity and emotion to his character as Apollo's trainer. Great acting.

    RIP
