Rick Ducommun was never what one would call a household name. But he had fans. A lot of them. And those fans – horror dedicated in specific – climbed aboard the Ducommun Wagon long ago, when Rick stole our hearts in kick ass flicks like Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Little Monsters, The ‘Burbs and Scary Movie.
The man had a knack for the comedic, and he fit right into our much-beloved genre. That’s exactly why it hurts to announce the man’s passing.
At just 58 years of age Ducommun has departed this world. We don’t know the official cause of death just yet, but in truth that’s somewhat irrelevant. We just lost another amazing thespian, and that stings.
Our condolences go out to Ducommun’s family and friends.
