Dork Hero: Charles Napier R.I.P.

Character actor Charles Napier has died.  You will be missed.  He was one of the first "That Guy" actors I recognized as a child watching films like The Blues Brothers, Rambo: First Blood Part II, and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.  Not to mention his countless television appearances on Simon & Simon, Kojak, and of course...Star Trek.  The last film I ever saw him in was The Goods and even though that movie was all kinds of awful, Napier provided some of the film's few laughs as the hate-filled racist car salesman.  And, of course, there's The Night Stalker.
