Jessica Walter, RIP

R.I.P. Arrested Development and Archer would be much lesser shows without her. Oh, and nobody could wink like she could.

OMG, they continue to drop like flies...this woman has been working steadily since the 1960's but I didn't really sit up and take notice of her until I saw Play Misty for Me...she scared the crap out of me in that movie. And her work on Arrested Development was exquisite. My condolances to Ron Leibman and the rest of her family, Great loss. RIP



That's creepy. I was just thinking today how sad it was that she lost her real-life husband (Ron Liebman) as well as her sometimes on-screen husband (George Segal) in a relatively short time span.

Truly loved her in anything she did. But every time I heard her name, Play Misty For Me popped into my head. That role made her and she was an exquisite psycho in that film. But she was so versatile that she could do drama and comedy with equal flair. Another great one gone. Godspeed, Jessica.

All good people are asleep and dreaming.
Play Misty for Me is why I don't discuss movies outside of this forum much.



When Fatal Attraction came out, people would be praising the film and how they never seen anything like it.

I'd ask them if they had ever watched Play Misty for Me and they would look at like I was stupid. I gave up.
