 Bestest Wishes to Brian

Brian Dennehy, the winner of two Tonys in a career that also spanned films including “Tommy Boy,” “First Blood” and “Cocoon,” and television roles including “Dynasty” and “Death of a Salesman,” died on Wednesday night in New Haven, Conn. He was 81.

Brian Manion Dennehy was born in Bridgeport, Conn. He served in the Marines from 1959-63, after which he studied history at Columbia, attending the university on a football scholarship. He subsequently earned his MFA in dramatic arts from Yale.

Denney was married twice, the first time to Judith Scheff. He is survived by second wife Jennifer Arnott, a costume designer, whom he married in 1988; three daughters by Scheff, actresses Elizabeth and Kathleen, and Deirdre; as well as son Cormac and daughter Sarah with Arnott.

Dennehy racked up more than 180 acting credits in his lengthy career, including roles as Chris Farley's father Thomas "Big Tom" Callahan Jr. in the 1995 comedy "Tommy Boy" and D.A. Jake Dunham in "Dynasty," as well as his more recent role as Do inic Wilkinson in NBC's "The Blacklist."

The actor made his TV and feature debut in 1977 — a year in which he made appearances in at least 10 series or telepics, including “Kojak,” “MASH” and “”Lou Grant,” and the films “Looking for Mr. Goodbar” and “Semi-Tough.” From that point he maintained a heavy work load for decades.

His Family Are Not the Only ones who will Miss him. His Fans Will Miss him too. He was Such an Incredible Character Actor of Many Guises. He Will be Sorely Missed. However, We will be Happy for him as he Passes from this Life to the Next, to Continue on, With a Continuance of the Greatness he Shared with us during his time spent Here. Our Bestest Wishes for him on his Eternal Journey &, yes, Our Sincerest Condolences to his Family & Friends.
