What a career- in spite of all the big movies he was in, I had no idea he was the captain in Sound of Music! His older self looked hardly recognizable to his younger self.
I enjoyed his portrayal of Atahuapa, the ruler of the Incan Empire in "The Royal Hunt of the Sun."

One has to wonder if Rep. Wright may have been exposed...oh, 33 days ago, when he was abruptly packed into a "secure location" with lots of fellow House members, many of whom refused to mask. The "revolution" eats its own? Again?
Wright was also battling lung cancer for awhile, so he was not a good candidate to fight off the COVID. He was our county tax assessor prior to running for the House, but his district did not include our section of Fort Worth.

Wow, that is shocking news. I can't believe he was already 53 and, conversely, that he passed so young. .
Schocker. I hadn't heard he was sick. R.I.P.. He had a couple of mediocre years after the Phillies signed him in 2001 & 2002 and things looked grim for him coming out of ST in 2003 when he got hit around all over Florida and had a rough first outing against the Marlins. But, then he had a dominating season and followed it up with a couple of more good seasons before his career ran out of gas in 2006.
Very sad. Also surprised by this but such is the life of a reliever
IN MEMORIAM: Former Phillies relief pitcher Rheal Cormier died today after courageous battle with cancer; 53 years old. Spent more time in a Phillies uniform than any other during his 16-year career; 363 games, more than any other Phils LHR except Tug McGraw. RIP, friend. pic.twitter.com/bhc3dAKNij— Larry Shenk (

He was a great example of Ed Wade’s obsession with veteran relievers. I think we gave up a draft pick to get him. He was a decent reliever who had a couple of good years together.
