This is genuinely depressing. By all accounts a great dude in and out of acting. Plus a great actor on one of my favorite shows.

 

RIP John, hope you avoid the winds of ###### up there

Hey there, Sexian.  I mean, Julian.

 

The guy did some serious theater, too.  He was a good actor.

Two of my favorite Lahey-ism's

"We're sailing into a ###### typhoon Randy, we better haul in the jib before it gets covered in ######"

"The ###### apple doesn't fall far from the ###### tree"

The countdown to liquor day has officially come to an end.

R.I.P. John/Jim

The Atlantic Ocean, my dear.  We have always wanted to live on an ocean front property.  Spectacular.

It is well known that I am not a fan of TPB, but I also have to say that I never watched even one minute of the show.

 

That video shows that there was much more to this man than his character on the show, as is the case with most.

His character on the show is so much different from real life. I think I read somewhere that Dunsworth didn't drink (or at least hadn't in a very long time), so Lahey, unlike some of the other guys, was truly an act. 

Jonathan Torrens is another guy on that show who deserves some credit for being more than his character. All around good guy.

The big three though, are less actors and more just playing themselves. Mike Smith is kind of a piece of sh*t.

The shows done now that Lahey, Torrens, and Lucy are done. They were just in the middle of filming their next season too. Wonder if they finished it

I agree. I think it's about run its course.
