Yes, he was a great and memorable actor. So many different roles, from comedic to heroic to dramatic and everything else.

I especially love some of his early roles, such as the romantic lead in "Indian Summer", Morgan Earp in "Tombstone", astronaut Fred Haise in "Apollo 13" and especially loved "Twister", which was filmed in and around Tulsa when I was living there. I saw the premiere at a Tulsa Drive-In that summer.

How many know that one of his 1st major roles was as a psychopathic killer in one of the early slasher flicks? Here he is in a short clip from that movie opposite Mary McDonough, aka Erin from "The Waltons":
