Ashes to Ashes, Swamp to Swamp

Dick Durock, who played the Swamp Thing in Swamp Thing (1982), The Return of Swamp Thing (1989) and Swamp Thing the TV series from the early '90s, died in Oak Park, CA last week at age 72. The six-foot-fiver from South Bend Indiana was a former Marine who found regular work as a Hollywood stuntman and working actor, but it was his role as mossy beast to Adrienne Barbeau's beauty for which he'll be most remembered. As for Mr. Thing, he lives on -- Akiva Goldsman is adapting Alan Moore's reimagining for the big screen.
