He brings a very believable cranky gravitas to the part. You can definitely believe him as Harmon's dad and you can see how much Harmon loves working with him. (I love it any time an "old pro" shows up in guest part---Devane, Brian Dennehy etc.) At this point Harmon is pretty much in that category himself, although to me he'll always be Sexiest Man Alive 1986.

Definitely the third and another sad one.

Also recently the priest on Days Of Our Lives as well, Father Matt I think.

It's been a long long time since I've seen ANY soap, but I was still sort of following a few of them up to a few years ago. Nothing really now. Talk about a guy who went out with his acting boots on.

I pretty much only follow the one US soap that's airing here now (The Bold And The Beautiful - also the half hour makes it easier) and one of the Australian shows, Home & Away, which I only ever started again because a friend of mine kept going on and on about this guy in it - Chris Hemsworth, but I've kept it up after he left of course. But yeah, I love the older actors still getting work. They're still out there, even if it's a once in a while appearance on a procedural or a short term stint on a drama. I've noticed, since watching some older shows in re-runs, that's kind of always been a staple of shows that allow guests, things like The Love Boat often being a final appearance for a beloved classic star, nowadays it's CSI or NCIS or Law & Order franchises, or a low-strain recurring part on a soap.
