Charles Durning "Sidestep"

Over the holidays, the family was talking about the End Of The Year reviews that were listing the famous folks who had passed away in 2012.  The list seemed unusually long, particularly those from the music world.  Adam YauchDoc WatsonDavy Jones.

Over the holidays, a couple of famous actors passed away.  In reading their obituaries, I learned that they actually did some singing.

Without further ado (and hopefully not sullying their legacies in your mind), enjoy!

Charles Durning's acting career is incredibly impressive.  But not every role can be Big Daddy in "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof."

And while you could call the prancing about in the scene below an affront to the dignity of a World-Class actor, he did give the role his all---and nabbed a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for this performance in "The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas"

Hear the song on Youtube.
