One of my favorite character actors, Les Carlson,
passed away at his home in Toronto, Ontario on Saturday, May 3, 2014 at the age
of 81. Mr. Carlson appeared in some of
my favorite genre films. He played
Graham, the telephone lineman in Black Christmas (1974), Barry Convex, the
the Spectacular Optical Corporation,
in David Cronenberg's Videodrome (1982), Brenner the newspaper editor in David
Cronenberg's adaptation of Stephen King's The Dead Zone (1983), the
Christmas Tree Salesman in Bob Clark's immortal A Christmas Story
(1983), Dr. Brent Cheevers in David Cronenberg's 1986 remake of The Fly,
and nearly over 100 other roles in movies, television, and on the stage.
He will be sorely missed!
