Renowned character actor and director Richard Attenborough has died. Many of the articles you're about to see popping up will probably credit him with his directing and civil accomplishments for the most part, but to me he was the lovable old man with a dream who said, "Dr. Grant. My dear Dr. Sattler. Welcome...to Jurassic Park." He was the warmest and most welcoming presence in the first movie that scared the crap out of me, thrilled me, and made me love going to the movies.
And he was also Santa Claus.
