The line I remember him for is "Listen, dedication's one thing, but if you let it, this job will eat you up and spit you out whole. You wanna look like me when you hit 50?....... ish?"

 

RIP, Zed. For real, this time.

I remember reading an amusing anecdote in some Hollywood exposé, I forgot the name of the book now, about the time Rip had an altercation with Dennis Hopper in an LA restaurant, it was the late 70s I think. It got quite heated between the pair of them, and so Rip, putting on his best tough guy act (and knowing full well about Hopper's nutter reputation), told him to step outside, a bluff which backfired when Dennis came out right behind him ready to fight. So Rip, in his panic, picked up a metal dustbin lid and frisbeed it at his wild eyed assailant before legging it.

 

RIP.
