On June 12th we lost a comedic mastermind and one of the stars in my favorite movie ever! RIP Art may your fridge be chock full of knockwurst and cold beers...



(The Hollywood Reporter)Rick Ducommun, the comic character actor best known for playing Tom Hanks' prankster neighbor Art Weingartner in Joe Dante's "The 'Burbs," died June 12 in a hospice in Vancouver surrounded by family. He was 62.

Ducommun, who also was memorable in small roles in such films as "Die Hard" (1988), "Groundhog Day" (1993) and "Scary Movie" (2000), passed away due to a "serious complication from diabetes," his wife, Leslie Ducommun, confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

Then a relatively unknown stand-up comic, Ducommun beat out SCTV stars Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis to land the part of Ray Peterson's (Hanks) nosy next-door neighbor Art, who thinks there's been a murder in the neighborhood, in "The 'Burbs" (1989), Dante noted on Twitter.

I remember seeing his standup back in the 80s, he was a funny guy.

Too much bad news lately regarding people dying. Holy cow, I missed this one. I enjoyed him in the Burbs and I loved his bit part in Groundhog Day as one of the town drunks.
