Brimley was best known for his roles in John Carpenter's The Thing and Ron Howard's Cocoon,


as well as the diabetes education commercials he appeared in later in his career.

There ya go.

Anyway, RIP, the guy brought plenty of laughter and joy with those diabeetus commercials.

Jesus fuck, that guy was still alive? I would have thought he was 85 20 years ago.

If you haven't seen the Seinfeld episode he was in, do your self a favor and go watch it.
