business news in context, analysis with attitude

Norman Lloyd, one of the most enduring of American character actors, has passed away at age 106.

Perhaps best known to modern audiences as Dr. Daniel Auschlander, on the influential TV series "St. Elsewhere," which ran on NBC from 1982 to 1988, Lloyd had a career that included working with Orson Welles, Charlie Chaplin (he was in Chaplin's last film, Limelight), Jean Renoir, and Alfred Hitchcock (in Saboteur and Spellbound).  Lloyd more recently worked with Judd Apatow and Amy Schumer on Trainwreck, Martin Scorsese, and Peter Weir (playing the headmaster who was Robin Williams' foil in Dead Poets Society).
