    RIP Eli Wallach

    Yesterday, at the age of 98.
    One of the most memorable 'banditos' in cinematic history, but also a veteran Broadway performer who was known for his thoughtfulness and easy-going nature.
    There will never be another Tuco Ramirez.
    Here's a piece of advice from Tuco to all you gun-toting Americans.


    RIP

    I'll never forget Tuco laying the verbal crackdown on his brother the priest.

    On film, a vicious bastard.

    Behind the scenes, one of the smartest gents to ever play a bad guy.

    His wife is a pisser, too, and still acts at age 87.

    That whole exchange is quite memorable. Its one of the few scenes in cinematic history that really chokes me up.
