Brian Dennehy, An American actor dies at 81.

 

 

Brian Manion Dennehy was an American actor and a winner of one Golden Globe, two Tony Awards and a recipient of six Primetime Emmy Award nominations.

 

Brian gained recognition for his role as Sheriff Will Teasle in First Blood.

Dennehy, a two-time Tony Award winner died of natural causes in Connecticut on Wednesday night, ICM Partners announced in a statement.
his daughter described him in a tweet as “larger than life” and “generous to a fault.”

Dennehy co-starred in numerous popular movies, the western “Silverado,” and the science-fiction classic “Cocoon.” He played as a basketball coach Bobby Knight in a made-for-TV movie and, Chris Farley’s dad in the comedy “Tommy Boy.”‍

He came to acting late, he said. He grew “a big, totally uncoordinated, hopeless football player” who ended up “just good enough to get a scholarship to Columbia.”

After serving in the Marines, he found work driving a meat truck and doing whatever odd jobs he could find — a period of about a decade that he later called “the best possible apprenticeship” for being an actor.

“I learned firsthand how a truck driver lives, what a bartender does, how a salesman thinks,” he said. “I had to make a life in those jobs, not just pretend.”

While juggling day jobs, Mr. Dennehy managed to act in plays across Long Island. He eventually quit those jobs and moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting at 38: His first movie role was as a football player in “Semi-Tough,” for which he was paid $1,000 a week for 10 weeks.
He said his only goal at the time was to make enough money to put his children through college. “They had made too many sacrifices over the years,” brian said.

Mr. Dennehy is survived by his wife, Jennifer Arnott; their daughters, Elizabeth, Kathleen and Deirdre; and grandchildren.
