RIP Andreas Katsulas

One of sci-fi's best heavies just died of lung cancer at the too-young age of 59. Katsulas, who sported a dour face recognizable from such productions as "The Fugitive," "Babylon-5," and "Star Trek: The Next Generation," was an enthusiastic make-up actor in a business that doesn't always embrace such talent willingly -- but he was praised up and down at many a convention, I'll bet. "B5" and "ST:TNG" fans are nothing if not generous with praise.
