Decided to look up this Adrian Mole stuff and wow. I loved the first two books of that series, didn't know there were others.

Not a very well known actor, but one fans of David Cronenberg films will know.

Leslie Carlson, a character actor best known for his role as the sinister Barry Convex in the classic sci-fi film “Videodrome,” is dead.

He died of cancer at his home in Toronto at the age of 81.

In addition to his role as a creepy corporate bad guy in 1983's “Videodrome,” for which he was nominated for a Genie Award for supporting actor, Carlson appeared in three other movies directed by David Cronenberg: 1983's “The Dead Zone,” 1986's “The Fly” and the short film “Camera” in 2000.

Among his most high-profile films roles was as a too-enthusiastic tree salesman in the 1983 holiday film “A Christmas Story.” He also appeared in “Black Christmas” and “Deranged.”

Been meaning to re-watch Videodrome, and I love Cronenberg's The Fly.
RIP.
