Ned Beatty, character actor best known for roles in Deliverance and Network, dies age 83

Just saw it on the news. I loved him in the old Superman movies.

One of my favorite movie quotes from him comes from 'Back to School' when the stuck up professor is asking how Rodney Dangerfield's character got into the school and he says, "in defense of Mr. Melon, it was a VERY big check."
