    Sherman Hensley, the voice of B.P. Richfield from "Dinosaurs", passed away today at the age of 74.

    May he rest in peace.

    We'll never hear another "Sinclair! In here now!", but rest in peace Mr. Hensley.

    Sherman you played a cruel, heatless, sadistic horrible boss in every respect, and you did it so well! You played a fantastically evil character, and delighted viewers as you terrified the cast!

    There is only one B.P Richfield and sadly, he is no more. :sympathy:

    Bradley P. Richfield... he's one of my favorite characters on Dinosaurs (which I've been watching recently on Netflix, and ironically yesterday I saw the last episode where the snow age comes in and freezes the dinosaurs to death)
    I don't know much of Sherman Hemsley's career, but his voice for Richfield combined with the puppetry of the Henson puppeteers was perfect. R.I.P.

    The only way we'll hear that again is watching Dinosaurs episodes on youtube.

    Hemsley also played George Jefferson on The Jeffersons and he also played on the TV show Amen. There are episodes of both shows on youtube. They are both great shows :cool:
