Ok, here we go:

If he's 75 now that means he was

He looked 70 in that movie!

Uh...is there a timeline glitch or something? I SWEAR I remember hearing that this guy died a few years ago. When I saw the headline I thought it was a cruel joke for that reason. Like, what's the "now" picture going to show? A coffin?!? ;D Seriously though, this guy died a few years ago. It's like the whole Jack Palance thing. All these people remember him dying before he actually died. So when he died "for real" people were like, Maybe the f*cker will finally stay dead this time! What is it with these guys already being dead but then not being dead?? I know I remember him being dead.

He is alive, and he lives most of the year in outside of Greybull Wyoming (also the hometown of Brett Keisel of the Pittsburgh Steelers). From what I hear, he is a very nice guy, and he does a lot for the local communities.

If you're going to get someone to tell you how to behave medically when they have diabetes then that person should epotimize the behavior. Brimley is a fine actor and all but let's face it, he's at least 100 lbs overweight. that in and of itself is a killer when you have diabetes. Oh well.
