Bruce Dern

Thursday, 4th June 1936
Chicago, IL
USA


Whereas Donald Sutherland's hippie characters were naive and fun, Dern's ran to varying degrees of unhingedness. Has the distinction of gunning down The Duke. Like Sutherland as he has matured, his roles tend towards stuffed shirt types which is kind of ironic, really. Always interesting. My fave, Silent Running, where he is the good guy for once, but still tainted with madness.
