Shoot.

Larry Drake, who is most famous  for playing the mentally handicapped "Benny" on LA Law has died. He was found dead at his home by a friend.

Drake also had roles in "Darkman" as the main bad guy and as the evil dentist "Dr. Giggles."

I remember him as the creepy as hell killer in the Santa suit in the first Tales From The Crypt episode.  :speechless:

That was a great episode and everything a Tales from the Crypt episode should be (but most aren't): scary, silly and a lot of fun.

I was just telling somebody about Dr. Giggles, and I was actually wondering what he's been up to acting wise these days.  Sad to hear.

He was only 66. I know he was a bit heavy, but that's still not particularly old.
