Great Caesar's ghost!

Sad to hear about the passing of character actor Lane Smith, following a long battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ("Lou Gehrig's disease").

You probably remember Mr. Smith either as Perry White, the crotchety editor of the Daily Planet on Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, or as Jim Trotter, the wily Southern prosecutor pitted against Joe Pesci's tyro lawyer from Brooklyn in My Cousin Vinny. He also turned in a deadly accurate performance as President Richard Nixon in the TV drama The Final Days.

Sincere SSTOL condolences to Mr. Smith's loved ones.

Ah, man. He did a great job in Lois and Clark. Support vibes sent to his family and friends.

He was great in "My Cousin Vinnie" and I am sorry to hear he had Lou Gehrig's Disease. Prayers for his family and friends.
