RIP, Richard Griffiths
Farewell, you terrible cunt. You may remember him as Uncle Vernon from Harry Potter, or from Withnail and I (in which he played Uncle Monty instead of Uncle Vernon) or from his…oh, man, he was unbelievable on Broadway in Alan Bennett’s The History Boys. Unbelievable! I’m including the schlocky stupid trailer from the film version above, so you can see and hear him, but it’s turned into this icky Mr. Holland’s Opus thing. Get a time machine, set it for 2005, go see it onstage.
