RIP. He played sleazy characters really well. I remember he was Beth Raines' father on The Guiding Light and that character was as slimy as you can get on tv.

We need a gif of Carrie doing a big, ugly cry.

RIP Mr. Rebhorn, you will be missed

I remember him from Law and Order. The man fought cancer for over 20 years. That will make a person look old. T. W.

I remember him from As The World Turns also, Sandy. But I thought he was Beth's stepfather!

sandybrook said...

No he was Bradley Raines and he was always looking at young Beth like he was gonna molest her Surfer. Poor Mrs. Raines was kinda beat down dealing with him too.

surfer said...

You're right Sandy. He was super slimy.

Wonder what the cause of death was

I finally found out his name. Twenty years of fighting with cancer. Just wow. Every day, though, they are discovering more and more. There seems to be a boom of knowledge the last few years, as if all the fund-raising is finally coming to something.

That story line with Beth was way ahead of times. You simply did not discuss things like that back then. Ah well, I miss GL & ATWT. RIP to the ultra talented Mr. James Rebhorn.

Rest in peace my friend, good journey.

He was a longtime favorite of mine. He always brought a sense of simple truthfulness to every role he played. I'll always remember him with great fondness playing Harrison "Stormy" Storms in the second episode of Tom Hanks' HBO miniseries "From the Earth to the Moon," and as the heroes' boss, Special Agent Reese Hughes, in the USA Network's "White Collar."

He will be missed.

Did you seriously remember him from seeing From The Earth To The Moon, @JAS?

He always played the aashole who was bested. But he was a fine actor. RIP

KSam said...

I remember his character in Independence Day...RIP.

The cause was said to be skin cancer...prayers to his loved ones

Murphy said...

I remembered him from Independence Day, Blank Check (ha), and as Stormy in From the Earth to the Moon also.

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

CocoaBeachBunny: That's not the first thing I saw him or remembered him from, but it's probably my favorite role of his.

JoElla said...

So sad. I had no idea he battled melanoma for so long.

God Speed.

Diane said...

Because on the show, his character was a rapist. He also raped Holden's wife Angel on ATWT. He made a great bad guy.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

This bums me out so much. He was a terrific actor! RIP.

Shoko Soto said...

when i read the hunger games i kept picturing him as snow.

CocoaBeachBunny said...

I watched that series too but didn't recognize him. Well done.

HEATHER said...

I always remembered him as Henry Lange from ATWT-oh he was such a creep! So I guess that means he was a great actor. RIP

Cee Kay said...

Bradley Raines and Henry Lange were two of the worst characters ever, because James Rebhorn played them so well...RIP.
