He was an actor, appearing in classic films like Repo Man, The Last Temptation of Christ, and Paris, Texas.

His complete filmography is on Wikipedia [4] and IMDB.[5]

Most famous line: "A lot of people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch of unconnected incidents and things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice of coincidence that lays on top of everything. Give you an example, show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate of shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, "plate," or "shrimp," or "plate of shrimp" out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconsciousness."[6]

His 9th GGF is Samuel Kent, a Founding Immigrant.

Rudolph Hudson is the 14th great grandfather of Harry.

Ralph Everard is the 19th great grandfather of Harry.
