Dennis Burkley has died at age 67.
Burkley was one of those actors whose face – and, to a great extent, his voice – was instantly recognizable for movie and TV audiences.
Burkley was perhaps best known for playing rough guys and biker types, particularly in the 1985 tearjerker “Mask” as one of Sam Elliott’s biker buds who befriends Rocky (Eric Stoltz), the free-spirited but disfigured teen.
Burkley was, for some of us, equally recognizable for smaller roles in movies like “No Way Out” and many, many TV series.
We’ll miss you, Mr. Burkley. We’re glad your legacy will live on.
