    Aussie Actor Bill Hunter Dies

    Wonderful Aussie actor Bill Hunter dies. He played a lot of iconic Aussie characters and will probably be best remembered for the dad in Muriel's Wedding. But also he was in Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Strictly Ballroom. He will be sadly missed from the Australian movie scene.

    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    ^ Don't forget "Gallipoli"!

    Watching him fall in love with Terrance Stamp's Bernadette in "Priscilla" is so sweet and, IMHO, the crux of the entire movie.

    A great, versatile actor.

    Awwww, I am sad to hear this. He was a good actor. Australia has a boatload of great actors.

    He was great as Federation President Barry Fife in Strictly Ballroom. I'll watch it tonight in his honor...

    He seemed to be in every Australian movie at one point. Probably because he was so good. He will be missed.
    The ancient Egyptians worshipped cats as gods, and the cats have never forgotten.
