Actor George Kennedy passed away Monday at age 91, according to TMZ. Best known for his Oscar-winning supporting role as chain gang prisoner Dragline in Cool Hand Luke, the 6-foot-4-inches tall Kennedy was often cast in the "tough guy" role; and later in his career he returned to prominence as the dimwitted police captain in the Naked Gun screwball comedy film series.

He was a great actor.. My high school girlfriends father looked just like him.. When he said "jump" I wasn't dumb enough to ask how high..
