Warren Oates

It would have been Warren Oates's 83rd birthday today.

If there is an afterlife, I'd like to think he's doing tequila shots with the ghost of Sam Peckinpah at the Alfredo Garcia Bar & Grill right now.

There's sure as hell a few glasses being raised at chez Agitation tonight!

I often think about how great Oates would have been in roles as he got older. His body of work is amazing as it is but entire films could have been written around him as an older man, a birthday well worth celebrating!

Agreed. Imagine the use his world-weary gravitas could have been put to.
