Actor James Gammon best known as Lou Brown in the 'Major League' film series has died

Recommended Posts

:cry:Actor James Gammon best known as Cleveland Indians Manager Lou Brown in the "Major League" movie series had passed away. Here the news link and you tube click. If you have not seen "Major League" I or II it's a funny movie and IMO worth seeing either on Video or next time it's played on TV. Skip the 3rd part though please it was a flop and horrible film.

He played Don Johnson's father (Nick Bridges) on one of my favorite hit shows; Nash Bridges. He starred in the opening scene of Stephen Kings 'Silver Bullet' as well. He was a great actor and will be missed.:) Thank you for posting this.

No problem buddy.:tup: I only seen bits of "Nash Bridges' so i can't say how his role was on that show. However Gammon as 'Skipper Lou Brown' was a pure classic in film history dealing with sports imo a real character.:P

Nash is a great show. Don Johnson has so many different girls in and out of his life through out the shows 6 years on air. James Gammon, played Don's father in about 50 episodes. In the show, James portrayed as an Ex-Military retiree and had a huge case of memory loss. Don never really called him dad, yet 'Nick' he answered too. Ill have to take out Major League and see it.

Brighton, please don't get Major League 3. It sucked IMO like most good movies that was overplayed w/ sequels. Stick to Major League 1(best in series like most movies) and 2(descent and was 'conclusion' to Major League 1). Without spoiling the plot "Lou Brown" was not in Major League 3 as well.

A very good movie from 1989 which amazingly preceded the real Cleveland Indians' return to health in the mid 1990's and included trips to the World Series in 1995 and 1997. Unfortunately, the Indians haven't quite enjoyed the success they did from around 1993 to around 2003 but they'll be back.

 

RIP Mr. James Gammon.

Don't forget the "Tribe' won the AL Central in 2007 featuring CC and Cliff Lee and made it to game #7 of the 2007 ALCS as well beating the Yanks in the first round.
