LOS ANGELES George Kennedy, the hulking, tough-guy character actor who won an Academy Award for his portrayal of a savage chain-gang convict in the 1960s classic "Cool Hand Luke," has died.

His grandson Cory Schenkel says Kennedy died on Sunday morning of old age in Boise, Idaho. He was 91.

Another fine actor gone. RIP

Wasn't he the character who received that fearsome wallop with a lump of wood from John Wayne in the "Sons of Katie Elder" movie. I still wince every time I see that scene.

Great actor and character...RIP
