Sadly on the 8th April 2015 American actor Geoffrey Lewis who starred in Stephen King's Sci-Fi computer AI horror Lawn Mower Man (1992) has died aged 79 yrs.

Geoffrey Lewis, father of nine children, one which included daughter and fellow actress/musician/singer Juliet Lewis ( films- National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (1989) & Dusk Till Dawn (1995) appeared in many a TV series which included Michael Landon's Highway to Heaven ect.. and a multitude of movies in his career from the classic Clint Eastwood movies High Plains Drifter, Any which Way but loose/Away which you can (1978/80), but for me he'll mostly be remembered for me in the brilliant Stephen King Vampire made for TV horror movie Salem's Lot (1979) in which he played character Mike Rayerson, grave digger and would-be bloodsucker.
