Lou Perryman R.I.P.
It's belatedly come to my attention that Lou Perryman, the Texas actor who played L.G. McPeters in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, was the victim of an apparent homicide on April 1st of this year in his home in Austin, Texas. He was 67. Oddly, Ken Evert, the actor who played Grandpa Sawyer in TCM 2, died a year earlier on the same date, also in Austin. Evert, a Vietnam Vet, apparently suffered from ongoing health issues attributed with being exposed to agent orange, a chemical defoliant used during the war.
