RIP Paul Winfield, General Franklin

Paul Winfield has passed away, who played General Franklin.

General Franklin was one of my absolute favorite one episode characters, and I thought Winfield was AWESOME in the role.

Regards,

-Tim

Oops, I just posted this in my forum. Oh well. Winfield was a terrific actor and I enjoyed his performances whenever I saw them. May he rest in peace.

Agreed. I thought Winfield did a great job in a role which (due to the dialogue) could easily have been hash. Larry DiTillio did a better job in his other scripts, but this one should have spent more time in editing. Sometimes acting does triumph over script.
