simple frown

He's recently beeen on Criminal Minds as an old war buddy of Rossi's, so he wasn't someone I only thought about from a past show.

He was 67 years old and the article says he had a terminal illness.  

While reading about his body of work, it reminded me that he was in Mannequin.   I TOTALLY remember him from Mannequin in all of his 80s dressing splendor.  LOL.

Anyway... RIP Meshach.  :(

I only knew him from Designing Women. Used to watch it with my parents all the time. Loved his character!

I remember him from Designing Women as well but hadn't  seen him in years.  He was so funny.

First time I ever remember seeing him was as Hollywood Montrose in Mannequin. He was so funny in that roll.

Whenever I type Mannequin, read Mannequin or just think about it... in my head all I can hear is "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now"............... hahahahhaha
