    He always sticks in my mind as one of those actors who made a movie. He was unique and one of the best out there. Such a shame. RIP

    Mmm.. in a bit of a virtual-RL collision I watched Inception on Sunday and on spotting him went "Oh.. it's Pete thingy.. this [film] will probably be OK then". This is sad.. not usually sentimental about people I don't know, but he definitely was a "distinguished character actor" who made it very easy to suspend disbelief.

    He was one of those actors who seemed to pop up in every film and would always deliver a great performance.

    Very sad news, to me he was an actor with so much depth to play any character incredibly well. I remember him best for playing a character in Sharpe.
