Actor Bernie Casey, who appeared in such films as Boxcar Bertha, Never Say Never Again and Revenge of the Nerds after a career as a standout NFL wide receiver, has died. He was 78.

(1990).


A true Renaissance man, Casey also was a published poet as well as a painter whose work was exhibited in galleries around the world.
