The Loss of a Great Actor: Ulrich Muhe

I would like to take a moment to recognize Ulrich Muhe, a German actor, who passed away from stomach cancer this week. The actor has a long list of acting credits to his name, dating back over twenty years. The only film of his I have seen is the recent German film "The Lives of Others". He plays the lead, a stern agent named Wiesler tasked to spy on a suspected political dissident. His performance is excellent, and sticks with you well after the end of the film. I hope that his passing will encourage many to see this film and his amazing work in it.
