You may remember Charles Durning from such pictures as Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?, The Hudsucker Proxy, True Confessions and The Sting, but did you know that he was a boxer and as a 17 year old stormed Omaha Beach as a U.S. Army Ranger? I didn't. Read a blurb about his service here, all I can say is, wow. If a person can live what he lived through and go on to shake his ample ass so gleefully in such films as The Best Little Whore House in Texas, there is hope for us all.
