    Ditto that. One of my favorite movies of all time, and he has one of the best lines… "Let me tell you something about boys. They're like weeds. They grow best when they're ignored." LOL R.I.P. Vampire dad

    2014 is determined to suck until it's very last moments isn't it. May I be the first to say good riddance 2014, don't let the door hit ya!
    Edward Herrmann was awesome, he was fun in The Lost Boys and hilarious in Overboard. He will be missed. R.I.P. Sir.

    He did a lot of voiceover and narration work too. I could always recognize him.

    He seemed to be in everything. Loved him in Overboard "I'm so virile, I'm so great!" and Lost Boys- also played FDR in Annie. RIP.

    I was just thinking about him last night. I'm reading "Killing Patton" right now and every time the book discusses FDR I always thought of Hermann because he played FDR so well.

    Loved him in Overboard too "Tofutti, oh Tofutti!" LOL.

    I remember him as Pastor Michael Hill in the 1979 Disney flick "The North Avenue Irregulars". Could be wrong but I think that was one of the last if not the last of those great Disney G rated non-animated comedies.

    Noooo!!! I first noticed him in The Lost Boys as well. He's been great in so many things. I think he's one of those guys a lot of people don't know by name but as soon as they see him they know they've seen him.

    He would make frequent appearances at Bucknell and was well liked. I enjoyed his "Waldo Pepper" role, especially when he's panicking while trapped in the burning wreckage.

    Appeared as Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Didn't realize he was so old!
