Maury Chaykin, R.I.P.

Chaykin as WolfeCanadian actor, Maury Chaykin has passed away. He was 61. He’s probably best known for his role in 1994’s Whale Music and for a really funny/creepy turn in Dances With Wolves. Currently, he had a recurring role in the Canadian show, Less Than Kind.

Personally, my favourite role of his was as Nero Wolfe in the series that ran from 2000-2002. I think it was an underrated show and Chaykin’s portrayal of Wolfe was the definitive one.
