Charles Durning (1923-2012) as Casey Stengel

Over the Holiday we got the news of Charles Durning's death.  If you check out the mans imdb page there are a plethora of roles he played - feature filims, sitcoms, and even the Muppets and animated series like the Family Guy.

One of the roles I didn't know about was as Casey Stengel in a one man show for PBS.

I guess he met Jack Klugman up there. I liked him as Denis Leary's father on Rescue Me.
